If you don’t already know Kay’s name, she is about to remind you what it is…about 100 times too many.
Normally I am supportive of Canadian music ventures. Unfortunately when your music is licensed to Dumptruck Unicorn Entertainment, there isn’t much I can do for you other than send your EP back to the dumpster where it came from.
Kay is the latest in breakout Canadian pop Internet music disasters. Made famous by YouTube and sounding like an odd mix of Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj and The Ting Tings, Kay is not worth listening to.
Unless you are five years old.
Even then, I think most five-year-olds would recognize that Kay is a no-talent clown.
My Name is Kay is the debut EP for the pride of Cape Breton, N.S. The lead single off the EP is also the title track and it is even more annoying than I thought it was going to be.
“You just keep on talking,” Kay sings, “don’t know what my name is.”
Perhaps it is because I don’t care what your name is?
Perhaps it is because you are yelling your name in my ear repeatedly and it is getting on my nerves?
Perhaps it is because you haven’t done anything worthwhile that would lead people to remember who you are?
“If rhymes could kill,” Kay sings, “I would put you in a coma.”
Kay, may I ask you a favour? Just put me in a coma now. I can’t take any more.
Things don’t get better once the opening atrocity ends. The second track on the EP is M.A.J.O.R. Kay tries to convince the listener that she is m-a-j-o-r, but doesn’t explicitly state that she is a major embarrassment to Canadian music.
Thankfully she doesn’t need to explicitly state that. It’s already apparent.
Stranger is the only track in which I could find anything redeeming about Kay. Her vocal strengths are finally apparent. It might be the best track on the EP, but Stranger isn’t good enough to make up for the trainwreck that occurred prior to it.
My Name Is Kay is only good for one thing – a coaster for your beer. And even then, I’m not sure I would embarrass my beer by setting it on top of Kay’s EP.
