The LA-based songstress might be her own worst enemy regarding love.
Hailing from the vibrant, musical City of Angels, Kacey Fifield burst onto the scene and immediately showed she could sing and make music with the best of them.
The award-winning singer-songwriter has already made a resounding impact on the music scene, captivating audiences with her self-written and acclaimed debut album, "Between The Lines," released in 2022. Having already racked up an impressive six million+ streams on her original songs, the future looks bright for this rising star as she builds a buzz for herself.
Fifield's debut album "Between The Lines" introduced Fifield's expansive musical world and indicated her incredible versatility. From the deep house rave-up "Toxic" to the resolute and anthemic "Like Us" and even her dreamy release "Palms," Fifield's shown us that she's not afraid to switch it up, keeping us on our toes.
When you have the vocals and musical ability to do so, why wouldn't you? With new releases on the horizon, Fifield has also started performing live events, taking her skills and stage presence to a new level. As she emphatically blazes her trail in the scene, it seems like her star will continue to burn bright as ever.
"Self Sabotage," Fifields latest release, is an alluring release that paradoxically mixes Fifield's tender and sometimes slightly ethereal vocals with melancholy lyrics. Over soft pop instrumentals that also channel a little electro, Fifields slowly rips us apart. Lyrics like "honestly I did you a favor / You think I'm a traitor / But you'll thank me later" tell the story of a love tragically cut prematurely, although maybe for the best.
It makes sense, though; although Fifield's vocals make her sound heartbroken, lyrics like "but if I stayed then I'd abandon you / always had my ways, know how to hide the truth / I'd mess up your life and give you trust issues" indicate a complicated relationship with herself. It's a captivating story that drives us even deeper into Fifield's sound, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
Since the release of her acclaimed debut album "Between The Lines," Kacey Fifield has continued to grow better and better. With a host of upcoming live performances (including a performance at the legendary Whiskey A Go-Go on August 5th), Fifield is showing no signs of slowing down, and we can't wait to see which direction she'll go in next. Whenever you're ready, tap in and stream Kacey Fifield's latest release, "Self Sabotage."
Welcome to BuzzMusic, Kacey Fifield! We loved "Self Sabotage," the narrative and story you told through this release were captivating! What was the inspiration behind this release?
The song is reflective and self-deprecating while maintaining an upbeat tone that makes it fun to dance to and scream the lyrics. Some lines are a bit sarcastic, but overall it touches on accountability and acknowledging that we all have made mistakes that sabotaged our relationships. The idea for the first verse came to me while walking to Office Depot with my best friend and talking about her ex. I set out to write a song from his POV, and as I was writing, I realized how relatable the human tendency to self-sabotage can be.
Could you take us through the creative process for this release? Was it different from your usual releases or more the same?
I wrote the first verse quickly and sat with it for a few months before continuing. Then, when I was looking back at old songs I had written long before, I remembered the chorus of a different song I ended up scrapping and realized I liked the line "Every time I fall in love, it rains in California." I decided to keep writing Self Sabotage using that line in the bridge! After that, I showed the idea to my collaborator Robbie Rosen, and we finished producing the song quickly.
What's been your favorite part about being a musician so far?
I love performing live! Live music is unique; connecting with people while singing to them is the most fantastic thing ever.
What would you want it to be if your fans could take one thing away from your music?
I want listeners to be able to use the song to reflect on relationships where they may have been the problem and the people who used to be in their lives that may have sabotaged their relationship. Most of all, my goal for all my songs is for everyone to have fun dancing and singing along!
What's next for Kacey Fifield? You have a couple of upcoming shows. Is there anything you want to say to your fans?
