It’s time to Raise A Glass and herald the ascension of Citizen Kay. After popping the cork with his climactic arrival in early 2013, smashing the airwaves and musical palates around the country with the sonic and lyrical experience of his debut EP YES!, Citizen Kay has spent the last six months spitting rhymes and dropping beats on stages all across the country in his prodigious live show.
Earning himself massive love from triple j in the form of rotation, as well as slaying house, state and country with his much-lauded and hype-generating set at Bigsound, it’s time to farewell the YES! era and enter the new age of Kay.
Citizen Kay’s sophomore single is a game-changer, bringing to the mix the dedicated horn blowing BKBB (Brass Knuckle Brass Band). Raise A Glass is a charging mix of brass, hip hop beats and slick and savvy rhymes, wrapping it all up into a punchy soul driven excursion that flows and hooks from start to finish.
Capturing the charging energy of the track, CK’s clan have the formula for one perfect party: Motorbikes, building bonfires and BBQ’s, all in an abandoned house in the forest. So Raise A Glass – Citizen Kay has returned to walk amongst us to the beat of his new track, poised to fulfil his musical destiny.’
