Since making her debut in 2010, K.Flay has spun fearlessly detailed lyrics that show the bright and dark of the world in her head. For her second full-length Every Where Is Some Where, the San Francisco-based alt-pop/hip-hop artist pushed deeper into introspection while adding an element of political commentary. The result is her most deliberate and dynamic work yet, a thrillingly vital album that channels the frenzy and anxieties of today’s world.
The Stanford-educated, superlative MC, born Kristine Flaherty, was the first signee to Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds’ Interscope-distributed Night Street Records. Since releasing her sophomore album in early 2017, K.Flay has received two Grammy nominations for ‘Best Engineered Album’ and ‘Best Rock Song’ for her breakout single “Blood in the Cut“, a track that spent the majority of 2017 in the Top 5 of Billboard’s alternative charts.
K.Flay’s boundless musical style defies genres by weaving clever, articulate hip-hop with lo-fi, dark-pop productions and gritty alternative rock. But don’t be fooled by K.Flay’s childishly innocent vocals. Old fashioned seduction’s what she employs. That was evident with the sold-out crowd she drew at Austin’s Mohawk last Thursday with special guest, Doncaster’s spitfire poet, Yungblud. The Mohawk show was K.Flay’s next-to-last performance stateside before venturing across the pond during the month of April for the European leg of her tour and then wrapping up on the West Coast.
