The world works in mysterious ways and we do love how it often sends us serendipitous coincidences and joins the dots from various points to another. For example, this morning we shared a song Chelsea Jade called “Find Me” and now we have another song, this time by Indiana-born prodigy, Kêta, also called “Find Me”. What are the chances? As if that wasn’t enough, we also referenced Oh Land in our Chelsea Jade post and guess what? Tomorrow we’ll be posting the new Oh Land video. Seriously, it’s almost like this was all planned out but really, we’re not capable of that level of organisation so this is all the Universe at work.
Enough mystical babbling, we’re here to talk about Kêta who, you may or may not already know, is a 16 year old wunderkind making waves across the states right now. Her recent debut EP, Generation Call, blends electronic arrangements, folky honesty and pop based catchiness across its four tracks, of which, “Find Me” is one.
It combines that kind of country-folk-pop sounds that would have the fictional Rayna James wetting her knickers with excitement and that would leave the patrons of The Bluebird in raptures. Yeah, we like Nashville and we don’t care who knows it.
Her voice is pillow soft and as comforting as your warm, cosy bed on a dark winter’s day. The guitar dances lightly as a butterfly’s kiss as the melody floats like fireflies on the night sky. It is a song that feels like wonderment, like fantasy and magic yet is built on a foundation of the reality of life and all its yearning hopefulness. “Find Me” is delicate and beautiful and it’s no wonder she is already causing quite the stir.
”Find Me” is taken from the ‘Generation Call’ EP which is out now and available to buy from iTunes.
