Praise for Okay Kaya So Far:
“'Psych Ward' is a deeply catchy slacker rock song inspired by Kaya Wilkins’ own experience in a mental health institution, one that reasserts her talent for blunt, laconic, minimal modern pop music.”
“'Baby Little Tween,' a song that finds Wilkins reckoning with her past and present self over a solid groove.”
“…potential to be the next biggest thing in music.”
Okay Kaya – the project of Norwegian-born, New York-based Kaya Wilkins – showcases a single/video, “Psych Ward,” from Watch This Liquid Pour Itself, her new album is out now on Jagjaguwar. On “Psych Ward,” Kaya’s scene of nurses making rounds is based on her personal experience of time spent in a hospital. When asked if she thinks of her music as primarily either ‘fictional’ or ‘autobiographical’, she quips that it is more complicated than just a one-word answer: “There’s me, and then the third person me—the ‘she.’” There’s a longing in the music—for what could be versus what is, and there’s a spark in between those places. Kaya explains that the heightened emotions she’s writing about creates and allows for that third entity to exist, adding, “In my music, I can give her that space.”
