KOLE – Let It Burn (Audio)
At 21, KOLE has a voice (both in her writing and in her performance) well beyond her years – and she’s just getting started. Her first single, “Wildflower,” is nu-disco pop perfection, and has amassed over 200,000 plays on Spotify.
Her second single, “Let it Burn” (released June 8th) was co-produced by Miami Horror, has garnered comparisons to Lykki Li and Lana del Rey, and is sure to take the world by storm.
I wrote “Let it Burn” in an afternoon, at my friend Benjamin Plant (of Miami Horror’s) house in LA. He showed me a start of an idea (what ended up being the instrumental introduction), and I immediately began writing – the song itself (melody and lyrics) was finished in about 20 minutes! The song as a whole reflect a feeling – the joy of letting something toxic “burn down” after holding on for too long. Learning to recognize when something must fall before repeating a pattern again and again. Trusting that when it ends, you’ll actually feel much better then before.
