Late last month, Parisian born singer/song-writer KIIRA released her debut single Last Time. For this particular song, she paired up with ODESZA touring vocalist and songwriter Naomi Wilds who is also partly responsible for co-writing this new single. Inspired by her journey of trying to figure it all out and practicing self-love and self-care the single’s title was born.
Last Time is a pop radio gold mine, passing up over dramatic beat drops and overly zealous production. Instead the single opts for a more simplistic route. It’s catchy and straight to the point. KIIRA’s vocals are kept light and airy which pairs perfectly with the production. According to KIIRA the lyrics are about “protecting one’s heart and finding redemption in a tumultuous relationship.” Not to mention the song boast an appearance from Noah North and up and coming rapper from Austin, Texas.
Overall, for KIIRA, Last Time is an honest attempt at making palatable pop music that just works. In her conquest to one day dominate the space of alt-pop and future bass, one can only assume that more singles are on the way and hopefully an entire project in the near future. But until then, check out the song below.
