Montreal-based musician Kaya Hoax’s music lives somewhere between hip hop and experimental pop, drawing inspiration from UK grime, dancehall and punk. It’s as celebratory as it is urgent something no more apparent than on her fierce new single “Kicker”.

Taken from her upcoming EP, Baby Gear, the distinctive new single comes packed with hyperactive hooks, infectious bass lines and earworm melodies while the chorus’ lyrics were inspired by an interrogation transcript she read while in Women’s Studies at Concordia University between a sneering police officer and a sexual assault survivor.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the song, Kaya explained:

“When writing “Kicker” I was drawing from conversations with women who all shared the same experience as me; being overly concerned with the needs of others and deprioritizing their own. I was fed up with being trapped in the role of caregiver. I wanted to flourish and not be held back by my tendency to nurture.”

“Kicker” is the latest track to be lifted from Kaya Hoax’s new EP, Baby Gear which drops on May 17th. To pre-order the EP, head over to here.
