Electro-pop visionary Kylo captivates audiences with her single “Closer”, the second to come from her upcoming EP, “Retrospect”, that will also include her previous track “Rerun”.
Kylo is a Toronto-based musician making waves in Canada’s Indie scene. In her unique musical approach, she blends bedroom pop melodies with elements of lo-fi curation and soothing production.
The single “Closer” chases an emotionally unavailable partner with the universal desire to attain closeness to those we love. Kylo wrote the lyrics and lent vocals while Matthew Stevens mixed and produced the track, and the brilliant Gabe Gallucci mixed the tune.
The tune begins with a smooth, establishing synth, easing the listener into KYLO’s universe. Lo-fi percussion (a steady bass drum) jumps into the production line about ten seconds in, along with serene vocals. Through her candid lyrics, KYLO invites listeners to relate to the downfall of a once-promising relationship. She explains the demise of the unrequited relationship and craves the connection they once had.
“Closer” nails a commonality between relationships and music – intimacy. Luckily, where relationships fail, music saves the day. KYLO turns to songwriting and storytelling skills to find human connections, ultimately discovering her life’s calling. KYLO’s works have been showcased on Noisey, CBC, and KALTBLUT, and she’s performed at the Mod Club, the Baby G, and the Drake. Her EP “Retrospect” debuts in late June.
