Kyla La Grange – So Sweet

Kyla La Grange

Kyla La Grange

The lovely Kyla La Grange is back, following the release of the enslaving ‘Cut Your Teeth‘, which was later remixed by tropical house DJ of the moment, Kygo.

Less of a goth princess this time, and more of an 80’s electro star, ‘So Sweet’ is a sugary pop treat. It has a backdrop of minimalistic synth beats, but it is Kyla’s vocals that really take the lead.

“I wrote So Sweet in my kitchen when I was feeling really happy and in love” explains Kyla, continuing “I started out with this arpeggiated jerky tuba type sound that I really liked but then wanted the choruses to feel a bit more cinematic with the dreamy guitars and harmonies, so there is kind of a weird contrast between the verses and the choruses, but I like it.”

If you’re wondering why the song feels different from Kyla’s previous material, she says “I guess 150bpm is pretty fast for a four to the floor track but I think it’s because I felt kind of buzzy when I was writing it. I never really wrote a love song before, at least not one that wasn’t sad.”

It is one of a collection of singles remixed by Jakwob.

Kyla will play Oval Space in London on 19 November; her biggest headline gig to date.
