Okay Kaya – Damn, Gravity

Kaya, aka Okay Kaya, has an interesting musical background, and not one you’d normally expect from a folk-tinged singer-songwriter. Born in New Jersey, Kaya moved to a small peninsula outside Oslo, Norway, before joining her brother’s black metal band as a guitarist when she was 15. Now, she finds herself in New York, but the melancholic dirge of black metal has been transposed into something more minimal, more soulful. “Damn, Gravity” is her latest single and it demonstrates a fundamental understanding of emotive songwriting and how to use a minor key to devastating effect.

Okay Kaya - Damn, Gravity

Okay Kaya is a new artist. So new, in fact, that the only concrete information we have about her comes from a couple of lines gleaned from her website: she was born in New Jersey, then she moved to Norway, and now she resides in New York City, where she makes music that “explores melancholy through melody & space”. What’s probably more beneficial than us providing a couple of lines of rote context is for you to look through her impeccably maintained Instagram, which demonstrates Kaya’s eye for capturing things both magical and ridiculous in everyday life.

Okay Kaya – Damn, Gravity Lyrics:
Oh gravity, Damn gravity
He keeps floating away from me
Oh gravity, Damn gravity, Away

I have never dreamt I’ll do him no harm
I always seem to pull him down

Oh gravity, Damn gravity
Oh gravity, Damn gravity
He keeps drifting away

I have never dreamt I’ll do him no harm
It always seemed he never belong
He’ll be floating away, floating away
He floats right back to me
He’ll be floating away, he’ll be turning away
He’ll be float right back to me

Oh gravity, Damn gravity
He keeps floating away from me
Oh gravity, Damn gravity, Away

I have never dreamt I’ll do him no harm
I always seem to pull him down

Oh gravity, Damn gravity,
Oh gravity, Damn gravity
He keeps drifting away

I have never dreamt I’ll do him no harm
It always seemed he never belong
He’ll be floating away, floating away
He floats right back to me
He’ll be floating away, he’ll be turning away
He’ll be float right back to me
