Canadian singer-songwriter Lindsay Kay drops intimate single “Through The Phone,” an offering which explores yearning, led by gentle guitars and her delicate vocals. Inspired by isolation and the need for connection during the pandemic, the track is rooted in relatability and upliftment as Kay’s soft yet powerful voice leads us into a musical journey filled with vulnerability and romance.
Beginning as a sensual, empowered snippet of having phone sex during isolation, the production evolved and came to life as something far more heart-felt and soulful as it weaved a tale about missing someone you love and seeking intimacy with them despite physical distances between them. Managing to remain celebratory even while infused with raw yearning for connection, “Through The Phone,” manages to balance emotional depth with nuances of celebratory confidence on one’s sexuality.
The track also marks Kay’s first new release since her 2018 debut albumFor the Feminine by the Feminine.Taking the messages of womanhood and femininity explored in her album forward with a more polished skill, Kay who has made a name for doing everything from music to multimedia and interdisciplinary performances combining dance and design, has already established herself as a truly well-rounded artist. Now, with this simple yet impactful release she reminds us once again of her ability to bring stories to life within intricate, earworm soundscapes.
