Kira May 'Health' (EP stream)

Kira May 'Health' (EP stream)
Vocal looper Kira May previously gave Exclaim! TV a live taste of her debut EP, and now the five-song collection has arrived. The Toronto singer will release Health on January 31 with a show at the city's Measure, and the EP is available to stream now on Exclaim.ca.

May concocts intricate arrangements that centre on her voice, from the chopped-up vocal riffs of "Cut Off Your Shadow" to the rhythmic exhales of "Never Broke a Bone" and the woozy AutoTune effects of "Visions." The songs also incorporate twinkling keys, pattering beats and other electronic elements, courtesy of Charles Tilden.

The bill this Friday at Measure also includes Zoo OWL and ZORDS. But for now, sink into Health below.
