It feels like whenever GAYLE puts her mind to something, she pulls it off almost effortlessly. We’ve had her EP, a study of the human experience volume one, on repeat since she dropped it. As much as we love screaming the fierce single ‘abcdefu,’ another single from the ep, ‘kiddie pool’ has just been given the orchestral treatment, and it is simply breathtaking.
GAYLE has just dropped the visualizer for a stripped-down orchestral performance of ‘kiddie pool,’ and we have so many thoughts. First of all, it is so nice to see her perform live and in what feels like an intimate setting. The smokey-looking studio really matches the tone of the track. It is darker and a little deeper than some of the other tracks on the EP.
Speaking of which, ‘kiddie pool’ is a lot more intimate than a lot of what we’ve heard from GAYLE so far. It is honest and represents the way a lot of us feel about falling in love and just wanting to be wanted and needed. Her soaring vocals are so impressive. The swell of the orchestra behind her gave us chills. It’s all we could have asked for. Although ‘kiddie pool’ shows a different side to her, it is still distinctively GAYLE, and we love that. She might be 17 and at the start of her career, but she has crafted a sound for herself which is unmistakable already.
We’re Not The Only Ones Obsessed
Since GAYLE dropped the visualizer, her fans have been eating it up on social media. They are just as excited as we are about her vocals here, maybe even more. We love to see it.
Do Not Miss This Live
Every time we think this EP couldn’t give us more, GAYLE delivers. We’re so glad she’s on tour right now so we can experience it for ourselves. If the vocals in the ‘kiddie pool’ visualizer are anything to go by, she is breathtaking live. Don’t miss the opportunity to catch her on tour with AJR in the states, there are still a couple of weeks left. And don’t worry, Europe, she’s not leaving anyone out as there’s a string of summer festival dates. We can all see her slay the stage this year and scream about our exes.
