British artist cathy kio is poised to make a name for herself in the music industry. Last Friday, she released her second single, Leaving. A retro-inspired instrumental design provides the track with an intriguing tone. cathy’s heartfelt vocals help to highlight the importance of the lyrics.
kio explains: ”I haven’t found another indie artist who writes about being in care, so hopefully this can bring some fresh perspective to the scene”. She adds: Leaving is about being happy to leave my abusive foster parents, but being sad that it ended so badly. It’s about not being able to work out whether I was happy or sad to be going.”
