Contra is a great example of bringing the essence of art-pop to its full notion and restlessness. Cajsa Siik knows exactly how to remain sonically insatiable whilst still giving her listeners a solid foothold. Her sensual vocals are a clear contrast to the enigmatic and textured arrangements. They fit perfectly with the minimalistic orchestration that supports her every word from the very first bar.

The overall production is contained yet exciting, with a steady rhythm of lead single “Higher pulsating in the background resembling somewhat Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know. The hand-tapping beats and Cajsa Siik’s captivating lyrics both leave the listener charmed and incapable of resisting the repeat button. This spring finds Cajsa releasing three new singles: “Follow You Down” (February), “State of Low” (March) and “Change of Heart” (April) as well as touring in Scandinavia and the UK. Hot off the back of releasing her latest studio album ‘Contra’ in October last year, Swedish artist Cajsa Siik steps into 2015 with the announcement of her new double A side single ‘State Of Low / Change Of Heart’.

With ‘Contra’ receiving unanimous acclaim from the likes of Noisey, NME and BBC 6Music, Cajsa Siik has now looked to cement herself as one of the standout voices for the year ahead. While ‘State Of Low’ showcases the effervescent side to her production, ‘Change Of Heart’ aims to challenge her vocally. Together giving a retrospective feel to her sound as a whole. With comparisons to fellow Scandinavian’s Lykke Li and Robyn, Cajsa Siik’s transcendent voice, accompanied by ethereal and harmonious production, has helped her stand out from the so-so vocalists of today, and enabled her to gather a solid fanbase at home and abroad.

Cajsa Siik – State of Low Lyrics:
You make me insane You make me insane
Dont make obey don’t make me obey

Confess emptymess and the rest that you left for me
Figure it out what you get is just what just see

I feel you
Hide from my mind
In this state of low
Now we’re parted

Make up your mind
In this state of low
I can’t reach
Take me with you when you go

Longing for you is a part of me
A touch underneath, a touch underneath
blisters they burst in the presence of a lie
Your pale see-through skin in the corner of my eye

I feel you
Hide from my mind
In this state of low
Now we’re parted

Make up your mind
In this state of low
I can’t reach
Take me with you when you go
