Song of the day: Been Better

Posted on

Hello kids,

Today I give you a Kyla La Grange, gothic pop singer-songwriter from Watford. Her dad is from Zimbabwe and her mother South African; they both left South Africa when her mother was pregnant to escape apartheid. Which I would argue was a good call. Having studied philosophy at Cambridge and admitting to being pessimistic and neurotic her songs are dark and personal. She is a big fan of Cat Power and her influences come through in her music. There is also a Florence and the Machine element, especially with her visuals being very earthy/pagan/mystical. Then of course, where would a critic be, without comparing a British female singer-songwriter to Kate Bush – especially after she used a red flappy dress.

Well that’s enough comparison for now. Let’s just give her her own space.

Here is Been Better

Lastly, Julia Stone anyone?
