GEORGI KAY is a Grammy-nominated British-Australian artist now based in LA; who over the last few years has collaborated with international stars like Tiesto, Kaskade, Steve Aoki and David Guetta. Though her voice has been heard in clubs the world over, she says she has a love of ‘creating and looping electronic beats, bass and synths’ and channels this in to her own music such as new single Lone Wolf.
One thing that immediately struck me about the track is the sheer amount of space in the music, allowing the individual strands of retro synths and minimal percussion to breathe and be heard, but also letting Kay’s beautiful and at times delicate vocals shine through. It’s as if the arrangement was crafted to reinforce the theme behind lyrics that reflect on the nature of loneliness and isolation. Lone Wolf feels like a cry in the wilderness, one that may be answered, but may never be fully understood by others.
Kay explained the lyrical and musical inspiration by saying it was about “Accepting the fact that no matter how many good people you have in your life, they will never truly know and understand you as deeply and as intimately as you know and understand yourself”.
