ANYTHING BUT ORNATE WITH KIAH
8/14/18

BY NICOLE GHAPGHARAN

The Berlin-born, NYC-raised (and now L.A.-based) artist Kiah Victoria recently dropped new track “Ornament” with Tralala Records, and its hitting in all the right places. Since inking a pub deal with Sony/ATV U.K. in 2015, Victoria released her debut single, “Cold War” and followed it up with her introductory EP, Everybody, which garnered more than 858k streams on Spotify alone. She's shown a solid grasp for layering her sultry and soulful voice with elements of r&b, electronic soul and even pop, and this new single expresses a multitude of those components.

Themes of feeling exposed and vulnerable are prominent with “Ornament,” which looks into the emotional rollercoaster of having your feelings toyed with. The title, however, is a contrast to everything it embodies. The track isn't decorative—it's raw and to the point. The melodramatic track is a not-so-subtle reminder of how unrequited love feels. Victoria captures the sense of being left unnoticed and draws comparisons to the concept of an untouched ornament. She permeates images of frustration and vulnerability in her lyrics and addresses emotions you didn’t even realize you have.

Stream her newest single below and check out the acoustic version here. If you get a chance to trek over to Skyspace L.A. tonight, Victoria will be performing a set for SoulfulOfNoise, a recent partnership between DICE, AirBnb, Karma Tequila, and OUE Skyspace. Doors open at 7pm.
