Kira Metcalf





Singer/Songwriter Kira Metcalf plays Elsehwere on July 24

In her blend of folk and pop Brooklyn-based artist Kira Metcalf mixes poetry with a variety of genres. Listening to her new LP Indelicate, this young talent writes songs about women's experiences with the self-assuredness of a seasoned performer and an enviable introspective quality. Opening track "I Had a Head," is an acappella number that is as satisfying for its harmonizations as it is for Metcalf's voice. "Thornbird" is an unexpected change in style, in part reminiscent of rock songwriters of 90's like The Cranberries' Dolores O'Riordan or - more recently - Paramore's Hayley Williams. 

Her new music video for "Lily" is equally poignant, showcasing Kira's keenness to investigate moments that escape most of us. The line, "to have what I crave feels like a trick" is the song's takeaway and the perfect summary of a personality that enjoys intellectual and lyrical reflection over... simple enjoyment. Kira Metcalf will perform live at Elsewhere's Zone One on July 24th. - Susan Moon
