Kaya Wilkins AKA: Okay Kaya has released a new single/video, “Asexual Wellbeing.” The track is off, the Norwegian-born, New York-based” artist’s forthcoming release Watch This Liquid Pour Itself, available January 24th via Jagjaguwar.
Kaya has been playing music since she was a tween, learning songs on her acoustic guitar and listening to Cody Chesnutt (even playing in a black metal project). Her music and artistic process has a cyclical nature, like water circling a drain. Reacting — whether physically on set, or alone with her guitar — has become an integral part of her writing.
Collaboration is central to Kaya’s creative process. Although she remains at the center of her artistic process, and recorded most of Watch This Liquid Pour Itself herself, she also collaborated with producers Jacob Portrait (UMO, Whitney, (Sandy) Alex G) and John Carroll Kirby (Solange, Kali Uchis) to fully realize her ideas for how this record should sound.
