KIAN burst into the hearts and minds of Australia after winning last year's triple j Unearthed High competition. He further cemented his arrival with #20 spot in triple j's 2018 Hottest 100 for his breakout track 'WAITING', included on forthcoming EP BLISS.
The release of the BLISS EP is the next step in Kian's journey. It features Waiting and follow-up single Childism, which was born from a lo-fi beat discovered on YouTube. It also shows a different side to Kian. Reminiscence is a dreamy soundscape with spoken-word vocals that Kian mixed himself; Summer Insecurity explores themes of solitude over lush R&B beats; while closing track Telephone playfully incorporates samples and skits.
"As much as I have a sense of seriousness in my music," he explains. "I think it's fun to show people another side of my character."
It's all about balance, he says. "That's what bliss is. Happiness can also bring sadness. It's a balance, and there'll always be balance in the world."
