Written in her hometown of Toronto, the new single “Go” is an amalgamation of ambition and encouragement. Radiating with sensual strings and twinkling piano, and rich in emotion, the song captivates the senses and recentres your soul as the main character, acting as a soundtrack to life’s biggest transitions. Covering a range of engaging themes, the track is about “moving on and moving forward: leaving home for the first time, chasing your dreams, leaving a town, leaving a relationship or a life behind”. Kay continues, “The lyrics are speaking directly to the doubts people have when they make these hard decisions, and breaking through those doubts so they don’t hold you back.”
“Writing this was a cathartic moment, when I wrote the words “and you take a few steps”, I could feel my soul healing. It’s the words I needed to hear to know I’d be ok and that I would move on.” Perfectly articulated by Kay herself, this song is serenely supportive, and full of encouragement to take those first few steps to move forward with life’s new challenges.
