It’s been five years since Kacy Hill released her debut EP to the world and all the time later she still manages to leave me utterly speechless with her spellbinding melodic brand of synth pop mixed with a subtle 90’s flair and experimental edge. She has a way of just making the music become apart of you, each lyric she delivers becomes transports you back to a moment in your life you thought you’d long forgot and that’s what makes her music so beautifully breathtakingly special.
She recently dropped her new album Is It Selfish If We Talk About Me Again, where the majority of the album works as a therapy session for the artist. Each lyric becomes a poignant reflection on her life, be it during fragile moments like To Someone Else or Everybody’s Mother with them navigating the isolating feelings and pains that comes with our own loneliness, heartbreak and insecurities. This only enhances her expressive and evocative lyrics further to the point where each word feels like a dagger.
What makes this album so mesmerising for me is the way you go on a journey with her. As she goes through the piece discovering herself you go on this journey with her, you slowly discovering things about yourself you didn’t know until a certain melody or lyrics hits you and suddenly it all comes flooding into vision. She’s a criminally underrated artist and genuinely deserves more praise for creating masterpieces like this.
