Kita Alexander has today released her sophomore EP, Hotel, which is out now through Atlantic Records. The EP comes off the back of last year’s Like You Want EP, which has garnered mass critical acclaim and been streamed by fans all over the world in excess of 25 million times. With influences ranging from Stevie Nicks to Cat Stevens, this new EP promises to only accelerate this phenomenal talent’s global assent.
The EP’s title track is the type of song that stops you in your tracks. Laid over beautiful, minimal production, Kita’s dusky alto voice helps the emotional, sombre lyrics leave a lasting mark on whomever they share company. Kita had this to say about the track: “I have this place inside of me which I usually keep locked shut and buried deep. It has always scared me to think what will come out if I opened it. At the time when I was to write Hotel, my partner lost a loved one. The only way I thought I could help was to dig up that feeling inside of myself and unlock the emotions that I had tried bury 3 years ago when my sister passed away. This song is dedicated to my friends and family and everyone else who has lost someone to the other side or lost a loving relationship. It’s written as a beacon of hope that one day we will bump into them and see them again down the line in this adventure of life and the next one we call death. Dedicated to Natassja Claire Alexander.”
