Holed up in a Copenhagen apartment after her European and North American tours were cancelled, Kaya Wilkins began demo-ing with her friend Nature Boy. But the session quickly developed into a full-fledged and stunning new collection of songs called ’Surviving is the New Living.'
By now, Kaya is known for laying bare the crevices of human sensuality and exploring the slipperier terrain of the modern psyche. But on ‘Surviving is the New Living’ we (alone but together) join her on the expedition — too horny for quarantine; folding towels with vigor; scrubbing until we’re numb; waiting for some locksmith to let us out like he’s Godot.
We’ll be out of this soon enough but for now, we have this raw, delightful and ultimately powerful love note from Okay Kaya.
