Nastiya Kai, a rising star hailing from Moscow and now traversing the globe between Paris, LA, and New York, invites listeners into a world where vulnerability is celebrated, and darkness is illuminated by the flicker of raw emotion with the new single ‘Bury Me’.
A self-taught musician, Nastiya Kai discovered solace in music at a young age, using it as a refuge from the tumultuous world around her. Battling bullying, mental health struggles, and the pangs of loneliness, she found companionship in the strings of her guitar and the ivory keys of her piano. It was through these instruments that she found her voice, channeling her experiences into lyrics that resonate with haunting honesty.
‘Bury Me’ serves as a tantalizing glimpse into Nastiya Kai’s forthcoming debut album, slated for early 2024. With minimalistic ambient instrumentation juxtaposed against tender acoustic guitar melodies, the track ebbs and flows like a journey through the depths of the human psyche. Nastiya Kai’s vocals, at once ethereal and commanding, guide the listener through a landscape of misplaced guilt, inner turmoil, and ultimately, self-discovery.
The track’s genre-bending production shows Nastiya Kai’s eclectic influences, drawing inspiration from artists as diverse as David Bowie, Daughter, and The Prodigy. Yet, amidst this sonic tapestry, her voice remains distinctly her own, a beacon of authenticity in an industry often plagued by artifice.
“‘Bury Me’ is about blaming yourself for all the horrible things someone else is responsible for,” Nastiya Kai shares. “It’s about the relentless search for answers in the face of adversity, even when the truth may be too painful to bear.” Indeed, the song’s emotional depth is palpable, as it traverses from introspective balladry to country-inspired choruses, culminating in a cathartic electronic drop that leaves a lasting impression on the listener’s soul.
So, as we eagerly await the release of Nastiya Kai’s debut album, let us immerse ourselves in the haunting melodies of ‘Bury Me’ and allow ourselves to be swept away by the raw emotion that lies within. For in the hands of this dark pop diva, music becomes not just a mere auditory experience, but a transformative journey of self-discovery and healing.
