Co-produced by Burns, Lisa Conway [LCON] + Andrew Collins, Relax is KASHKA’s most experimental to date- themes of human connection, isolation, and feminism weaving through springy synths and cinematic string arrangements. Recorded at Wildlife Sanctuary Sound, a converted studio in rural Ontario owned by Lisa and Andrew, the album is sparse but rich: up front vocals, curated synth and 808 drums coexist with lush arrangements and delicate melodies. Exploring themes of connection, feminism, and being "stuck", Relax draws the listener into a landscape of droney instrumentals and hooky choruses; feeling like flying while just daydreaming. It's a departure from her last single, the radio friendly 'Heavy Ghost', but a return to her roots in many ways; in Kat's words, "This came out of two years of writers block, travel, heaviness, frustration, and a lot of figuring out who I am, as a woman in this industry. It's imperfect, reflective, and a little weird, just like me!" The album includes stellar collaborations with Valerie Broussard, James Bunton, and LCON.
