Toronto artist Kira May uses her voice to build otherworldly art-pop songs that are lush, visceral and emotional. Influences ranging from Björk to Steve Reich to Kanye West come together to create a broad and exploratory palette of sounds.
May released her debut EP Health in 2014, recorded at her home. She has since shared stages with Jean-Michel Blais, Absolutely Free, Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors), Your Boy Tony Braxton, DIANA, and was featured in the debut Womxn Pedalling show curated by Lido Pimienta, highlighting the achievements of women in electronic music.
May’s first full-length album Sense is out as of spring 2018, exploring themes of pleasure, over-stimulation, panic and depression.
