Papua New Guinean-born artist ‘KAIIT’ (Ka-eet) has only recently been introduced into my life and she is deadly! I was so excited when I found out about her, I was scrolling through my Instagram explore page and her music video for her single ‘Miss Shiney’ popped up. Added below for you to hear her honeyed vocals:
I mean, this girl can really sing and her lyrics are most definitely the words I needed to hear when I was experiencing my first ever break-up, having body image issues or just something for the soul. Her whole album ‘Live from Her Room’ is a dedication to her personal experiences and life, which I think we can all relate to on a personal level, get to listening!
My favourites from her so far are ‘OG Love Kush pt 2’ and ‘Miss Shiney’. I just saw recently on her Instagram page that she has been given the opportunity to open for SZA’s show in Melbourne!! This is HUGE news considering she’s also a massive fan (as am I) of SZA, huge congrats to her for making it happen.
If you’re keen to get into some new, alluring neo-soul, jazz, RnB infused music then I know Kaiit will not disappoint. Also she has neo-soul queens Erykah Badu and Jill Scott claiming her as their DownUnder baby! I mean, come on, how awesome is that?! She is currently touring around Australia, so for my readers back home go see her and show some love for our homegirl!
