Bio

ACEKAYS is the project of 23-year-old Ipswich artist, Kaysei Galea, and was conceptualised after she experienced a myriad of out-of-this-world realisations at the hand of live music performances and festivals. The soul-stirring moments and unwavering unity that music evokes is something she longs to recreate with her use of full-sounding synths, mesmerising harmonies and earworm melodies, always keeping in sight the end goal of moving her audience both physically and emotionally. For ingenuity and inspiration, she looks to well-established pop-queens such as Billie Eilish and Maggie Rogers, but also holds firm in the importance of building her own unique sound.

You've done great work in making this song sound exactly the way you'd want it to so as to match the conceptual ideal behind the lyrics. It's a little unnerving!

it's understated, but every direction your voice steers toward is so unexpected and unusual. I'm hooked!
