Maisy Kay - Sleep

Having drawn comparisons to the likes of Kate Bush, Tori Amos and Halsey, 16-year-old UK-born, Los Angeles-based powerhouse vocalist and self-taught musician Maisy Kay, who first caught our attention earlier this summer with the release of her previous two singles, "Blood Filled Tears" and "Enough", makes a welcome return today with her absolutely mesmerizing and cinematic new single entitled "Sleep".

Speaking on the track, Maisy explains:

"The song came to me one night at 3 am, which seems appropriate. I wanted to show how chaotic your mind gets without sleep. The bridge and chorus are written in Latin, the mother tongue. I felt strongly that the chant needed to be in another language and was drawn to the Latin origin of the word Insomnia (īnsomnis)."

Listen to "Sleep" below.

Premiere via PopMatters.
