After a successful run from 2022-2023 which saw the release of 4 music videos for the sophomore album
“Sunday Sanctuary” and a Vietnamese single titled “Mê Cung”, Kiey is readying his third album with the
lead single “white boy i sat next to on the plane” out on the 19th of January, 2024.
Based on his favorite inspirations such as Troye Sivan, Lana Del Rey, Britney Spears, Utada Hikaru, Bjork
etc, Kiey continues to explore and develop his own musical style. His debut album in 2019 “Night To
Myself” is a love letter to the night and its dark secrets. In contrast, his sophomore album “Sunday
Sanctuary” is a bright, cinematic, uplifting electro-pop record using the catchiest chord progressions. For
this third upcoming album, Kiey experiments with a more simple, instrumental indie sound consisting of
laidback drums, pianos and strings using loops and samples. The song “white boy i sat next to on the
plane” is a taste of what’s to come.
The single is a hypnotic, bittersweet, minimalistic pop record borne out of Kiey’s own experience on a
plane where he was obsessing over a beautiful guy sitting across the aisle. Kiey imagined an alternate
universe where he had introduced himself to this person and would have started a beautiful relationship.
However, the reality was that he was too shy to approach the guy and thus the fantasy can only exist
within the poetry of the song.
