Kiiara Won’t Stand To Be Treated Like Anything Less Than “Gold”

A 20 year-old hardware store clerk teams with Felix Snow for an infectious debut.

June 17, 2015

By day, Kiiara is a hardware store clerk hailing from Illinois. But in her off hours, when she wants to "cut out the white noise and reach oblivion," as she told The FADER, she's been writing songs for herself. She's currently preparing for the release of an EP, and today has unleashed the first single, "Gold." Produced by frequent SZA collaborator Felix Snow, it's a glitchy, sensual airing out of a less than loyal lover: Say your sorry, honey, but you never really show, she sings, her voice just a tick above a whisper. And her retort? I can leave the party without ever letting you know. Young love, you know? Kiiara's debut EP, Meet Me In The Cornfield, is coming soon.
