On October 27th, 2023, emerging alt pop songwriter Nastiya Kai introduced her haunting single ‘Bury Me.’  ‘Bury Me’ offers us a glimpse into Nastiya Kai’s upcoming debut album scheduled for an early 2024 release. With over 141,500 streams and growing, her music has drawn comparisons to artists like Caroline Polachek and Sub Urban. Based between the dynamic cities of Moscow, Paris, LA, and New York, Nastiya Kai offers a unique sound that appeals to fans of avant-pop icons such as Billie Eilish, Grimes, and VÉRITÉ

‘Bury Me’ is a dark track featuring nuanced ambient instrumentation that is occasionally embellished with delicately contrasting folk-inspired acoustic guitar elements. The composition evolves, culminating in a mysterious electronic drop as it nears its end. Nastiya Kai’s expressive vocals are elevated by the genre-defying production, while her poignant lyrics explore themes of misplaced guilt, inner turmoil, and blame.

Nastiya Kai revealed: “‘Bury Me’ is about blaming yourself for all the horrible things someone else is responsible for. When someone is clearly out there to hurt you but you keep asking yourself if there’s anything you did wrong and what can you do to fix it even when you’re already underground as it is. I built it in a way where it takes you through this emotional rollercoaster. It starts off as a ballad, then evolves into a country-inspired chorus only to build up into a major electronic drop by the end.”
