Rising pop songwriter Nastiya Kai unveiled her dark, hypnotic single ‘Bury Me’ on October 27th, 2023. Based between Moscow, Paris, LA and New York, Nastiya Kai has offered ‘Bury Me’ as a taste of her upcoming debut album, set for release in early 2024. With her music garnering more than 141 500 streams and counting and a sound that has been compared to Caroline Polachek and Sub Urban, Nastiya Kai is making waves in the industry and shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. Her music is for fans of avant-pop luminaries such as Billie Eilish, Grimes and VÉRITÉ.
‘Bury Me’ is a brooding composition characterised by subtle ambient instrumentation, occasionally adorned with delicately contrasting folk-inspired acoustic guitar elements. The song unfolds with a transition into a mysterious electronic drop towards its conclusion. Nastiya Kai’s evocative vocals are enhanced by the genre-defying production, and her poignant lyrics delve into themes of misplaced guilt, inner turmoil, and blame.
Nastiya Kai revealed: “‘Bury Me’ is about blaming yourself for all the horrible things someone else is responsible for. When someone is clearly out there to hurt you but you keep asking yourself if there’s anything you did wrong and what can you do to fix it even when you’re already underground as it is. I built it in a way where it takes you through this emotional rollercoaster. It starts off as a ballad, then evolves into a country-inspired chorus only to build up into a major electronic drop by the end.”
