Keeva – The Kindest Thing (Audio)
An emotionally powerful & heartbreaking ballad from UK singer-songwriter Keeva. “The Kindest” Thing’ sprang from the rawest of betrayals, following the end of a long-term relationship dominated by infidelities.
“When it ended,” says Keeva; “I realised the kindest thing he ever did for me was to leave. It’s a very reflective song and I feel pain and sadness for my past self who lived through that, as I’m sure many others can relate to. Thankfully the pain has subsided and I’m in a far better place now.” The bruised source material is tempered with a self-aware sense of humour – Keeva shrugs off the writing of ‘The Kindest Thing’ in a single voice memo whilst lying on her bathroom floor as “The single most stereotypically heartbroken thing I’ve ever said! But to write the song was necessary, cathartic, and I’m very happy with how it all came together in the studio.”
Emerging with ‘Whiskey’ in late 2017, Keeva’s sound is borne out in the truly timeless quality of ‘Four Sad Songs and a Ballad’. Inspired by several generations of poets, playwrights and musicians in her own family – Keeva’s debut EP is vulnerable, assured, warm and unashamedly honest.
