KISSY IS NOT ABOUT THE BOOTY CALL ON ‘KILLER VIBES’

Music

May 4, 2016

Alt-pop songstress Kissy knows how to get at your soul with her powerful lyrics. The Brooklyn-based singer, whose real name is Sasha Ortiz, records and tours as a backup singer for Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, The Kills and Charles Bradley, but can definitely hold her own as a solo artist.

On her latest track, “Killer Vibes,” Kissy faces frustration when it comes to the idea of a booty call. “It’s a universal tale of two people who are vibing on each other in the heaviest way, but one wants something more serious, while the other wants to remain free to roam,” explains Ortiz. The song reveals the feelings that develop as that kind of relationship continues.

With her R&B-infused vocals, this is one jam we can get down with.
