NEWS: KAETO shares video for intoxicating new single ‘No Body’

KAETO will release her new single ‘No Body’ via Polydor Records on October 11th. ‘No Body’ is Kaeto’s first release for Polydor and follows last year’s debut ‘Good Morning’. It comes with production by Brendan Grieve and an immersive video directed by German filmmaker Paula Romy.

Anchored with a psych-flecked groove, and insistent basslines, while soulful heady vocals snake, rippling with the addiction to always being connected, and the themes of being watched and watching others. It’s an immersive gem, that has echoes of ’90s pop or the resonance of early U.S. Girls. “Why are we all watching ourselves?” she asks on the track, exploring themes of smartphone obsessions and modern vanity. “I’m not trying to be preachy,” Kaeto says. “I’m exploring these things because I’m doing them and I can’t stop.”

“I really enjoyed making ‘No Body’ and I love performing it,” she says. “I don’t want to say too much about what it means as it can ruin what other people might interpret and I think that is more interesting and fun! I don’t want to impress my experience onto other people. For me, the music is more fun than the words I can sum up to describe it.”

It’s the culmination of a period of sonic self-discovery for the Scottish-born, London-based artist. It was back in 2019 that Kaeto first entered the studio with outside producers and began building a sound that would be all her own, but the route she’s taken since is a mark of her maverick and inventive approach to music. One such diversion was enrolling in Clown School, a move designed to throw herself into something creative and spontaneous and shake off the mundanity of modern life. It’s why Kaeto’s music has such a free-spirited, loose-limbed sense of adventure about it. “I’m so unashamed of myself,” she says, “but music is where I go to explore these things.”

KAETO has announced a series of shows at Laylow. The mesmerising newcomer will kick things off with a performance at the West London venue on September 28th, following up with two further shows on October 12th and 26th. Following that, she will also open for ELIZA at Kentish Town Forum on 17th November.
