Following the release of a slew of critically-acclaimed singles last year, leading to her debut EP ‘Fragile But Strong As Hell’ this January, Ea Kaya (the moniker of Danish singer Christine Kiberg) now unleashes her first offering of the year with the killer ‘Cruel To Be Kind.’
The new release comes through with a floaty, gorgeous pop instrumental juxtaposed with the hyper-frank lyricism that Ea has become known for. Speaking on the track, she states:
“The track was written for someone very close to me. They were drowning in frustration, feeling like nothing was going right at the time and so desperately tried to find a way to forget his reality. It was awful to watch, because he’s a gifted person who didn’t cultivate any of his abilities but also because his unhappiness lead to anger that affected his family. His self-pity blinded him to the fact that he was the only one who could actively change his situation and mindset.”
With acclaim from heavyweight tastemakers incl. HIGHSNOBIETY, PAPER MAGAZINE, DUMMY and C-HEADS as well as a co-sign from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Ea Kaya’s continual quality control looks set to continue to earn her plaudits amongst the tastemakers and pop connoisseurs alike.
Still just 23, Ea continues to define herself with her frank, outspoken wisdom on sex, love and relationships. Making waves as Denmark’s most exciting future-pop prospect, Ea continues to cement her reputation as a bonafide one to watch in 2019.
‘Cruel To Be Kind’ is available now via all major digital platforms.
