In the scope of new singer songwriters, Okay Kaya creates the kind of music that crisscrosses genres while revealing vocals that are hard to dislike. With her new album Watch This Liquid Pour Itself out next week, Okay Kaya has not only announced her upcoming tour dates, but she’s dropped a new song & video for “Psych Ward.”
The song and the video open with a narrative that plays out over characters visuals before patients walk down a hallway. With Kaya as one of them, she goes about her daily routine with others donning scrubs. Though before you know it, others are singing along to the words from the infectious track. The song is more upbeat and sunny than its title would lean towards. The catchy pacing sticks with you as it bops along, proving Okay Kaya’s music can be just as engaging as it is sometimes subversive.
The video can be streamed above or on YouTube. The song is available to stream on all platforms as well. Watch This Liquid Pour Itself is available to preorder physically directly from Jagjaguwar before its January 24 release. Okay Kaya will be on tour starting January 27 at Van Leeuwen Ice Cream in Brooklyn, NY until May 08 in Berlin, De at Pitchfork Festival. Her complete tour dates can be found here.
