K. Flay Will Be On Your Playlist Before You Know It

If newcomer Lorde has impressed you with her opinionated, against the status quo way of doing music this year, you need to hear American rapper and singer, K. Flay. Sometimes it takes a newbie to rearrange musical pallets, in order for doors of acceptance to open to veteran indie artists, who have been at for some time. One listen to the song “Thicker Than Dust”, of off her first studio album and you quickly agree she fits perfectly amongst the New Zealander, Charli XCX and Iggy Azalea; even if she preceded their musical journeys by about four years.

Also similar is that fact that K. Flay (Kristine Flaherty) is not afraid to drop the f-bomb, or any other bomb for that matter. There are moments of course it seems to fit, if not altogether being the only word worthy to finish one of her lyrical lines. Still, as with Iggy Azalea, things will need to be nipped and tucked to make it onto mainstream radio. Her new records number nine track, “Thicker Than Dust” deserves to be heard as much as Lorde’s “Royals”, Iggy’s “Work” and Charli XCX’s “Superlove” did, back before anyone was ready to spin their stuff on air.

From her low view of what mainstream music had come to while attending Stanford University, to feeling imprisoned by her record label, to breaking free and using fan funds to release her first studio album Life As A Dog – K. Flay has all the qualities and sound that music lovers are eating up these days. She captivates with her unique vocal sound, sassy opinionated lyrics and funky-pop production. Take a listen and see if you don’t agree. We think K. Flay will be on your playlist before you know it.
