Kacy Hill shows us her influential Top 5 Powerful Voices in Pop
American model and dancer turned singer-songwriter KACY HILL introduced the world to her musical leanings with a handful of releases over the past couple of years, and secured herself a place in Aussie hearts with her captivating set at Splendour in the Grass last year. A few moons later, Hill has just released her debut album Like A Woman through Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music label, having become known to the musical maven while performing as a backup dancer during his Yeezus tour.
Hot on the heels of her Like A Woman LP, we have been gifted some insight into Kacy Hill’s inner music workings, with the fresh up-and-comer sharing with us her Top 5 Powerful Voices in Pop.
Check out her album’s leading single below, along with her some of favourite empowering tunes.
Mica Levi – ‘Love’
One of the most beautiful arrangements I have heard in ages. There is visceral emotion in this track that makes me feel tender, yet wholesome. It reminds me of nurturing feminine energy.
Portishead – ‘Glory Box’
I have always said this would be my opener if I was a stripper. ‘Glory Box’ will forever be my anthem for womanhood.
Donnie & Joe Emerson – ‘Baby’
As much as I stress that it is not the end all or defining factor in womanhood, being in love is incredible. It is magic and intoxicating, and the soft simplicity of ‘Baby’ encapsulates the beauty of being loved as a woman.
Lorde – ‘Supercut’
‘Supercut’ reminds me of being heartbroken and mulling over every action leading up to. I think there is femininity in the vulnerability inherent in loving and being heartbroken.
Ngaiire ft. Nai Palm – ‘Dirty Hercules’
Nai Palm and Ngaiire both are incredible vocalists with a grit that feels strong and womanly. I’ve probably listened to this song about five thousand times since it came out, and it makes me feel capable of anything.
