“When there was nothing left for you there, you took it from me, / All the while I stood by someone getting something for free. / Now there’s no one left you can hurt or try to mislead, / So now there’s nothing left…”“Nothing Left” by Kayte
Today’s Advent Calendar feature is Kayte! A london-based artist, Kayte released her first single, “Stop Hiding,” earlier this year, followed by “Under My Skin” in the summer. In her music, Kayte explores the effects of dealing with long-term mental illness. “I take trauma recovery and try to express it as best I can in all my songs, which I write and produce myself,” she says.
Kayte released her third single, “Nothing Left,” on November 27, 2020. The track was co-produced with Aaron Taylor, and features several home-made samples, “many different keys parts, and some heavy bass. It’s a real collage!” In the lyrics, Kayte explores the boundaries of an unbalanced relationship and “how they can help to keep our mental health afloat!”
The fourth single from the series, “Alone With Me,” is set to be released early next year, and Kayte is working on a visual EP for 2021 as well.
