Having wowed with her stunning debut offering Mulholland Drive weeks ago, rising NYC based polymath Kaelin Kost continues to share her artistry in gorgeous new left- pop single, Lightning Love. Arriving with a suitably striking visual, the track serves to further cement Kaelin as an artist to watch as 2021 rolls forward. Speaking on the track, Kaelin Kost states:
Lightning love is a bittersweet song about a relationship that’s intense and passionate, but ultimately unstable and fleeting. I like that it comes across as a love song in feel and melody (with a hint of cassette tape nostalgia) but if you listen to the lyrics, it’s actually about something quite toxic. Hence, “drowning when the seas are rough, but when it’s calm it’s not enough.” It’s about initially thinking you have the upper hand in a relationship, but ending up fragile, vulnerable, “struck.”
