UK Artist of the Week: Kaia Vieira

This week’s Artist of The Week is rising trip-hop artist Kaia Vieira and boy, does she deliver. Due to release her debut EP “Vikāra” on 29th May 2020, Kaia recently teased listeners with her new single “Where Did You Go?”’ and it certainly packs a punch.

Fans of the likes of Portishead and Massive Attack will certainly feel at home here, that’s for sure. “Where Did You Go?” is oozing with woozy electronic soundscapes from the offset, allowing Kaia’s smooth, sultry vocal to soar over the top, creating a sound akin to Little Dragon or SBTRKT in the process.

Talking about the single, Kaia explains, “It started off with me just going, ‘I want to create a tune that drops into a live jungle break’ to finish off the EP. I got linked to Adam Betts, a massively respected live DnB drummer who played with Goldie. As you can hear from the outro drop, it was literally everything I wanted.”

As the song concludes, a whole powerhouse of electronic elements come into play, not only ending on a massive high but it’s also technically, extremely impressive. Now, with collaborations with both Bladerunner and Sub Zero on the horizon, Kaia Vieira is ready to introduce her idiosyncratic sound to the world.

Kaia Vieira’s innovative debut EP “Vikāra” is in stores on 29th May 2020 via These Furious Recordings.
