Okay Kaya is the project of Norwegian-born, New York-based Kaya Wilkins – who recently released Watch This Liquid Pour Itself, her new album and Jagjaguwar debut. Kaya has been playing music since she was a teen, learning songs on her acoustic guitar and listening to Cody Chesnutt (even playing in a black metal project).
Her music and artistic process has a cyclical nature, like water circling a drain. Reacting — whether physically on set, or alone with her guitar — has become an integral part of her writing. Kaya’s lyrics encompass a vulnerability and playfulness that allow for unlikely juxtapositions. Her interest in parodying certain elements of pop songs allows her to showcase her humorous side, but it’s important to her that the songs remain vulnerable enough to connect with an audience. In these multi-layered lyrical approaches, the songs take on new meanings depending on who is listening.
