BIOGRAPHY

"I’ve been trying to connect with what the project means to me, what it is at it’s core and where it might sit in the world. I keep coming back to one recurring theme: a search for home and belonging.   KYVA represents occupying a space between two worlds. The pull and push of that experience.  It’s pronounced (K-eye-Vah).  …everyone once had to be told how to pronounce ‘Sade’." - KYVA

Crafting a delicate balance of alternative pop influenced by the likes of The Cure, Prince and Elliot Smith, KYVA embodies a union of worlds: drawing equally from spheres of Dark Wave and Soul to create something entirely new and sonically beautiful.

Press Clippings

““Wide World” is an intimate, ethereal, and spiritually affecting resistance song.”
– Atwood
“The Australian alt-pop artist KYVA, a recent signee to Frenchkiss Records, is sharing a dreamy new single today, ‘Wide World,’ which celebrates the vast and varied experiences of life through a lush palette of synths, Cure-style guitar and heavenly vocals.”
– The 405
“KYVA’s vocals and instrumentation reverberate throughout the composition. His singing features a husky-yet-androgynous sound that is perfectly complemented by the shimmering guitars and simple electronic beat.”
– mxdwn
