Lindsay Kay is a LA based, Calgary born artist.

She recently released a special music video for her track Worship Me, born out of her isolation experience.

The song comes off of Kay’s debut LP For the Feminine by the Feminine, a collection of songs centred around womanhood and femininity.  The project was made start-to-finish by women and female-identifying pros who’ve worked with critical darlings like Sonic Youth and Rufus Wainwright to megastars like Childish Gambino, Lady Gaga and Sia.

Worship Me sounds so good. I like the mellow yet powerful melodies. Besides, the vocals are outstanding. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the amazing harmonies and uplifting elements.

The artistic video was filmed in her home as an expression of the female body, and the self-exploration the world is going through while isolated from each other.

In an honest depiction of how she’s been handling isolation, Lindsay explains how the artful video came to be, “I began my covid isolation days in Barcelona, where I had been living for the past 5 months. I thought it best to return to Canada while I could to ride out the remainder of this tragic crisis in my hometown of Calgary, AB with my family. I’m grateful to be safe, healthy, and at home during these difficult days, but I, like everyone, am not immune to boredom and loneliness. After settling in and adjusting to the daily anxiety which has become the new normal for most of us, I started to feel the familiar urge to make art bubbling up – for some kind of connection through song. Writing new music hasn’t been feeling fruitful or possible for me yet during these times (what does one write about in a pandemic?), and although I’ve been practicing on my instruments some, it hasn’t been in any strict, future-focused way. Instead, I found myself turning to my trusty iPhone and using its little camera as my outlet for self-expression.”

Marrying visuals to music has always been a great love of mine, and having these covid-imposed limitations to create within was especially interesting and new. I started recording short snippets of video on my phone here in my mother’s house, striving to create imagery that reflects the lyrical content of my song Worship Me. The song discusses and celebrates the beauty and power innate in femininity and the female body, and so I used my own body to try and tell the story. I truly believe that art is invaluable in times like these. It is the thing that people look to for meaning, resonance, comfort, and understanding in these incomprehensible times. I hope someone – anyone! – will find even a brief moment of peace or inspiration watching my little homemade music video. It brought me much needed joy to make it, and it certainly helped the time pass.

Lindsay always delivers, she’s so talented. Her art deserves all the attention. Worship Me is a true masterpiece. Start streaming it now!
