On the back of his first addition to rotation on Triple j, Citizen Kay releases the video (directed by Nic Vevers) for the triumphant debut single Yes! from his forthcoming EP of the same name.
The release is accompanied by tour dates around the country which kicked off April 28th with a slot at Groovin’ the Moo in Canberra and a May residency at Sydney’s Upstairs Beresford. A respected member of the Canberra hip-hop scene, Kay has been writing, producing, recording, collaborating and honing his craft for the last five years. His first taste of notable attention was when triple j Unearthed picked up on his mixtape. Since then Kay has been an unstoppable force.
With a major buzz from the blogosphere and spins on triple j and Unearthed behind him, Kay has been building momentum since the release of the Ansah Brothers track with brother Genesis. Kay brings his trademark flow and broad music sensibilities to his beats, creating music with a playful edge and a Del-meets-Lupe appeal. Citizen Kay is set to deliver on the promise shown.
The Yes! EP is due in May.
