Kaya T serves up a slice of superior pop with her debut track ‘Flight Mode’. An authentic Pop & RnB bop that wouldn’t feel out of place on an Ariana Grande album, this refreshing debut from Kaya T feels instantly familiar with the delivery and production levels of an established pop princess.
Speaking of Flight Mode, Kaya T said “Flight Mode is about the detrimental effects of social media to someone who is struggling mentally. I wanted to write a song that gave my experience & how it can be a scary place when you’re not sure where your life is going. Seeing people only post the best versions of themselves can be hard to watch when you feel like you’re stuck in a rut or not feeling good about yourself. The lyric “I hope the stars hear me calling up above and they say what’s up don’t sigh now we’ve got your dreams on file now you’ll be alright”, is me picturing the stars having a filing cabinet of everyone’s dreams when they “wish upon a star” and that feeling of relief to know they had my dreams in their files now and that things would essentially be ok.
24 year old Dubliner Kaya T has been performing since she was five on some of the biggest stages in the country including The Olympia Theatre. She taught herself how to play the guitar aged ten and sights her father as her biggest musical influence. “My dad was always the musical influence in my life, he showed me all the best bands and we would often sit and play guitar and drums together for hours singing our favourite songs”. A huge fan of classic musicals like “Annie” Kaya T has a natural stage presence that elevates her above her peers.
