London based singer-songwriter and multi instrumentalist, Calista Kazuko is set to release the second single from her eagerly awaited ‘Project: Love Me’ EP on iChi Ni Records. Watch here
Following the success of her recent single ‘Poison’, Calista will unveil ‘Daddy Issues’ together with a beautiful accompanying music video directed by Philip Reinking on the 31st of March 2017.
The ‘Project: Love Me’ EP was recorded in London at The Smokehouse in Tower Bridge with award winning film composer Guy Dagul and features five brilliant new tracks. A cinematic soundscape filled with intensity and drama, the music is dark, twisted yet strangely uplifting and unlike anything around right now.
EP Track Listing:
2. ‘Love Me’
3. ‘Press Stop and Rewind’
4. ‘Life With Ivy’
5. ‘Daddy Issues’
Growing up in a musical family, Calista began creating and performing her own music while studying classical and jazz piano at the Royal Academy of Music. Inspired by the sound and attitude of the likes of Kate Bush, Regina Spektor, Marina and the Diamonds, Bat for Lashes and St Vincent, she set about crafting her own sound and compositions. Beautifully bold and aggressive, but with a vulnerable open femininity the music recalls the likes of Siouxsie, Goldfrapp and Diamanda Galas. The tracks featured on the debut EP are without doubt other- worldly; they will both confuse and delight and are all the better for it!
