Electro-pop maven’ (The Fader) Kiesza has released her EP DarkTales via her own label Zebra Spirit Tribe.
The EP follows her highly anticipated and critically acclaimed sophomore album CRAVE and her recent featured track with deadmau5, Bridged By A Lightwave. The stunning collaboration engaged audiences in a powerful aspect of Kiesza’s songwriting talent – the introspective, vulnerable exploration of vocal nuance and lyrical adventures.
Dark Tales is the epitome of Kiesza’s comeback; A life-changing car crash rendered Kiesza incapable of performing live, and potentially ever walking again, forcing her to take a two-year hiatus. This body of work is one Kiesza has been eager to share. Kiesza says: ‘Dark Tales is the key to my Pandora’s Box, unlocking my eccentricities, my pain and inner darkness that I often experience, but don’t always feel vulnerable enough to share. Songs from this EP come from different points in time through my journey thus far, and I’ve been eager to share them with the world. I’m ecstatic that they’re finally ready to be unleashed.’
Kiesza’s new music touches on her recent life-changing experiences musically drawing on a range of 80s influences. Her adept skill as a songwriter, which has seen the likes of Duran Duran, Jennifer Lopez, Gorgon City, Rihanna and KylieMinogue enlist her to write for them, is evident throughout her music and permits her to retake her rightful place on the pop scene.
