Earlier this week, buzzworthy G.O.O.D. Music artist Kacy Hill premiered her new single ‘Lion’ with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 as a World First and was simultaneously announced as one of the faces of the new Calvin Klein Fall 2016 campaign.
“Lion is one of the most aggressive tracks off the album,” said Kacy. “It speaks rather shamelessly about my own tendency to shroud feelings of guilt in defensiveness.”
She adds, “[It] speaks rather shamelessly about my own tendency to shroud feelings of guilt in defensiveness.”
Kacy Hill – spotted early by outlets like Vogue, W, Interview and described by New York magazine as ‘one to watch’ – continues on the road supporting artist-producer Jack Garratt, with whom she’s been touring for much of 2016. After successful legs across the U.S., UK & Ireland, they head to Australia later this month for performances in Sydney and Melbourne as well as Kacy¹s debut at Splendour in the Grass.
On ‘Lion’, Hill sings about a lying lover, pain and anger. Her strong falsetto soars as parts of the landscape come to life behind her in the accompanying visuals above.
Animated by Adam Ross, the vivid visual was shot in Hill’s hometown of Phoenix and focuses on the “romanticism in the American Dream and nostalgia of growing up in the desert.”
