about

Somewhen explores lost and vibrant future landscapes and personal relationships with Kayla's Fijian-British heritage. Drenched with synths, rich sounds and bright colours, the EP and accompanying visuals envisage a lost future that brings two cultures together. Somewhen is looking into the past to create a new future with a dream like familiarity.

Of her process on this lead single, Kayla says: “The looseness of the initial synth really sets the tone for this track – it doesn't quite lock in with the grid, which I really like. I built the track around the first motif you hear, wanting to create a layered journey that suddenly breaks away into a more minimal vibe. I've also started experimenting more with my own voice, and this track really celebrates the interplay between the synths, samples and percussion. As the idea of this track was to explore unseen and unknown time and space, there's some gradual detuning and sliding of notes which gives it this woozy feel alongside some pretty straight percussion (which is unusual for me)”.

Kayla will be joining Rival Consoles (Erased Tapes) on his Articulation tour as main support in October 2021. Her new live show will draw from the visual themes and aesthetics of the EP, exploring an alternative future using bold neon colours and uncanny, dreamlike sequences.

Her monthly radio show ‘Connections to Sound’ on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM continues to present thought provoking alternative electronic, ambient and experimental music. Gathering momentum and fans, her show has welcomed special guests such as Haiku Salut, Hannah Peel and Lake Turner.
