Toronto bedroom pop prodigy Katie McBride has decided to dispense with frivolous syllables and is now decidedly going by Kae Dal. And with the change of name comes a new single, one that’s even more grandiose and gripping than her lovely, delicate second EP 08215. Lush orchestration and soaring melodies carry the tune to wondrous heights, and it’s clear that McBride is stratosphere-bound. We’ll be watching her inevitable ascent with awe and admiration.
08215 is available now from Kae Dal’s Bandcamp.
