Kayla Grace - Bird in a Cage (Music Video)

"My last teenage years have been stolen from me" sings Kayla Grace. Even at 30, the Watford-born artist's new single Bird in a Cage still manages to resonate with me. Having spent the best part of a year 'locked up' at home, with every meaningful extracurricular activity stripped from beneath us, the track comes as a cathartic offering in these bitter empty times. Speaking more on the track, Kayla Shares: “‘Bird in A cage’ is, to put it simply, a song about lockdown. It’s painfully relatable but feels so personal and I think it’s something I needed to get out of my system to comprehend how much life has changed for everyone since coronavirus. It’s got this kind of irony because I’m complaining about my birthday being on a zoom call while people are literally dying, but I think it just shows the reality of the situation and how differently it's impacted, everyone. I’m in my final year of university and I’ve not really left my bedroom all year but I’m still putting this pressure on myself to be grateful that I’m even alive and healthy. I think a lot of people will resonate with the feeling of being isolated and trapped (like a bird in a cage) and all I’m hoping is that the song will help them realise they’re not truly alone. We’re all in this situation together and one day it’ll be okay again.” Take a listen for yourselves below.
