Kaeto is not the new anyone. There are no immediate reference points; no pop stars to stick her alongside. She’s an anomaly. An always inquisitive artist, writing songs about the questions we all ask ourselves. Like, why do we seem to be complicit in our own anxieties? Why can’t we stop doing things for the sake of our own vanity? Why are we hellbent on living through everything twice: once in the moment, and again on our phones, barely minutes later? “I’m not trying to be preachy,” Kaeto says. “I’m exploring these things because I’m doing them and I can’t stop.”
It’s in those fringes that Kaeto dredges out the finer details from the darkness and puts them into the songs she’s writing. But this is not a straight genre – it’s a confluence of many. How she found this sound is a lifelong story of sonic discovery.
