"Kiki" is another sure-fire track from BATTS, one deserving center shelf position and worth making room for in an already crowded display case of trophies. Have you ever woke up from a comfortable slumber only to find yourself still inside a dream-like state? It's overcast today in Los Angeles, the clouds blanketing the millions of go-getters populating the busy streets, but I'm caught running late listening to lead singer Tanya Batt's gorgeous vocal layers and kept toasty like I'm still snuggled under my duvet. Whether the lyrics have literal meaning for you, and whether the song serves as a comforter or band-aide, it's perfect balance of electronic and organic elements, brings a cinematic soundscape worth a hundred buckets of popcorn.
"Kiki is a song about the over thinking element that takes over your mind after a break up and during the initial stages of heartbreak." - BATTS
