Watch: Exuberant New Hayley Kiyoko Video For ‘Feelings’
Rolling Stone named her one of their “5 Artists You Need to Know” – and her inaugural EP Citrine (released in late 2016) reached Top 5 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. American singer-actress Hayley Kiyoko has also become something of an LGBT icon – her exuberant 2015 single “Girls Like Girls” sporting the not-so-ambiguous lyric, “Saw your face, heard your name, gotta get with you / Girls like girls like boys do, nothing new.”
Her eagerly anticipated debut album is due out on Atlantic in early 2018. But in the meantime, we’ve got this alluring little teaser: the first single “Feelings,” and its sexy-cool accompanying video. Sonically lush, and with more hooks than a slaughterhouse, the song also finds her lyrically admonishing those who would advise her to be “like ice.” Instead, she defiantly proclaims, “I’m sorry that I care / I feel too much.”
The video itself, in a modern-noir street setting, is an exhilarating, unabashed celebration of love and attraction – enough to make you want to go out and immediately fall in love again.
