Looks may be deceiving.
Up and coming singer Kylie Spence premieres her moody alt-pop debut single “Lying Eyes” on BreatheHeavy.com.
In the haunting piano ballad, Kylie details the vindictive nature of a tumultuous relationship. The song is tinted with a mellotron, harmonium, and wurlitzer and various old school recording tricks.
“There is a constant struggle between the two, yet they stay together because they love the outside of the person and their looks,” the 16-year-old singer-songwriter tells BreatheHeavy. “But, they can’t stand what is on the inside… I don’t always write from personal experiences, for ‘Lying Eyes,’ I drew inspiration from movies I’ve seen, stories I’ve heard and people I’ve met. I have such a deep empathy, so I’m able to connect and understand a lot of people and their past experiences.”
She adds: “I want people to get goose bumps. I want them to feel like they are in the character’s shoes and can relate in some way or another. I also want people to get a feel for what kind of artist I am.”
How come someone so cloudy on the inside, could look so nice to my Lying Eyes.
Kylie is an old soul, and her music reflects it. Listen to the moody new tune below:
