K.FLAY
K.FLAY
K.Flay's new EP, Eyes Shut, is a response to apathy. Thematically, the disc's five tracks offer a dialogue about what it means to care—and not care—in the twentysomething era. K.Flay, the moniker for San Francisco-based musician Kristine Flaherty, reacts to this generational indifference musically. Her spit-fire rhymes and distorted indie-electro production are infused with unabashed passion and thoughtful concern.

Flaherty, who grew up outside Chicago and launched her music career while enrolled at Stanford University, arrived at this subject matter after spending nearly a year touring the country solo. Although she was opening for artists like Passion Pit, 3OH!3 and Wallpaper, Flaherty took the stage alone each night, urging a deep sense of introspection that initially resulted in a mixtape called I Stopped Caring In '96. The mixtape, which Flaherty self-released last spring, initiated the writing process for Eyes Shut.

"I spent my first few years making music just messing around, not really having a sense of what I was about," she explains. "With the mixtape, I started to realize my vision for the project. I made it in isolation, which was liberating in a creative sense. The songs on this EP start where the mixtape left off and reflect where I'm at in my own life now. There are no love songs. It's really about a mindset, a perspective. A lot of the people I know are pretty apathetic and disillusioned. They'd rather check out than engage in something. I'm drawn to that myself at times and at other times I'm repelled by it."
