Multidimensional artist Kat Kikta continues her music career with the release of her second single I Let You Go. The melancholic and cinematic song shows a more relaxing side of Kikta’s musical work, all while employing some of the same mythical sounds that made her debut stand out.
Kat Kikta’s beginnings go back to the snowy mountains of communist-controlled Czechoslovakia, before she moved to London and prevailed against all obstacles in order to become a successful artist. She currently holds a Performing Arts degree and is a recognized actress and director, now starting her inspiring musical career.
I Let You Go usage of exotic instruments and tranquilizing vocals transport the listener to a state of mindfulness. The song deals with the events that come after breaking free from the “wrong one”, implying that better days are to come after facing the hard decision of allowing yourself to be free and happy. For anyone who’s ever felt trapped in a relationship, and is scared of fighting for their own wellbeing or letting go of a routine, I Let You Go‘s theme of summoning strength and creating your own path will help to soothe their anxiety and push them towards the right direction.
With sounds and lyrics that evoke healing and mental and spiritual enlightment, Kat Kikta’s music is just as effective deep contemplation, with the main difference of providing a pleasant accompaniment to one’s thoughts and dilemmas. Her art is completely natural, with most lyrics coming to her in moments of clarity, and a majority of her sounds can be found in the realm of spiritual myticism.
The intention of her music is as pure as the songwriting and production process they go through. A constant in her art are the themes of self-improvement and growth — heavily influenced by Kikta’s own journey career as an actress, sound and video artist, and ultimately singer-songwriter. Through a combination of her experiences and the work she produces, Kat Kikta desires to help her listeners heal and re-kindle with their spirits.
Her ambition is present in both of her singles, and we’ll be able to see more of it in her upcoming album Moldavite (coming this 2021). In the meantime, Deja Vu and I Let You Go show her audience different interpretations of reality and everyday stories, such as the complicated passage of time and letting go despite fear and insecurities. But even when Kikta touches on ache-inducing subjects, her work is a reminder of how there’s no dark and intolerable experience that can’t be turned into strength and power.
For all first time listeners, Kat Kikta would like to dedicate the following words:
“It is my responsibility in this life to channel and translate the things that come to me and find the best way to bring them into the world through sound, lyrics, melodies & atmosphere so that they can move onwards on their own journey. It’s important they don’t stop with me, but touch other people the same way they touched me.”
