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’s first full-length album Sense explores themes of pleasure, over-stimulation, panic and depression. Co-produced by Sandro Perri, Sense incorporates a mixture of solo vocal looping and live instrumentation.
"If albums were jewels, Toronto electro-pop artist Kira May’s Sense would be a Baroque pearl. All ten tracks on her debut LP feel as though we’re seeing luminescence for the first time..." -- maureen chow, canadian beats
"Sense is a daring fifty-five minute opus, told through the eyes and ears of an anxious empath." -- ZOË ELAINE, THE 405
