Kaia Vieira Shares New Song ‘The Care Giver’

Singer-songwriter Kaia Vieira, whose music is influenced by the likes of Portishead and Erykah Badhu, has shared a new track titled ‘The Care Giver’. Taken from her upcoming EP, Vikãra, out 29th May via These Furious Records, her latest single following ‘Make it Your Own Way’ and ‘Where Did You Go?’ showcases Vieira’s knack for compelling storytelling as it finds her combining elements of hip-hop with a slow-burning jazz-soul vibe and a touch of soulful electronica.

Talking about the track, the artist explains: “The actual title of ‘The Care Giver’ refers to a guardian figure abusing their position of trust. The figure is seen as this virtuous custodian from the outside but in reality, is ‘plagiarising’ the role of the absent parents. There’s a loss of childhood but there’s also survival, and even hope. It was my first attempt to ‘rap’ and I still wouldn’t call it necessarily rapping – I just wanted to tell a story more directly and it served the song to do it.”
