For a minute now we’ve gone on a bit about our adoration in the music of Katy Kirby. The singles the singer songwriter has released so far have all come with funny videos and hooks you can’t help but get reeled in by. On her new single “Portals” from her upcoming album Cool Dry Place, she changes gears and offers a softer tone while delivering a heartfelt moment as well.
The song is soft in its presentation. Essentially just Kirby’s elegant voice and a piano, there’s plenty of emotional weight within the lyrics and the stride of the song. In many ways it sounds like a phone call that was never made, yet within all of this there’s a sound that pulls you in. The tenderness mixed with emotive touches warms your heart and makes you champion the lead. When Kirby sings out is what really takes a hold of your heart and makes you an even bigger fan.
The lyric video is ready to watch above. “Portals” can be experienced wherever you stream music. Cool Dry Place is ready for preorder ahead of its February 19 release from Keeled Scales. It can also be preordered as a limited edition orange vinyl from Vinyl Me Please.
