Imagine it now: the sun blaring down from above, windows wound all the way down and sultry R&B singer Kaelin Kost’s “Mulholland Drive” sending ripples through your car speakers. Riding the intricately-crafted production, Kost’s ear-ringing vocals burst through the seams of the chorus on her debut single, introducing us to her vocal capability and prowess. Sitting comfortably between the likes of Olivia Rodrigo and Madison Beer, the newcomer opens up on her need to discover something new on the track, as she pines to explore her inner extrovert and venture out on a lowkey night with a certain someone.
Speaking on her debut release and accompanying video, the singer revealed, “’Mulholland Drive’ is kind of an antisocial anthem. It’s about opting out of large surface-level social gatherings and the relief of feeling alone with someone else. I consider myself an introvert who’s good at being an extrovert when needed, but I find it super draining. This song is a reminder to let go of all of that, put my phone down – for once –, and to get lost with someone outside of the crowd.”
The young Pittsburgh-hailed artist has spent the past few years merging her love for design with her passionate vocals, creating and executing all aspects of creativity from writing to artwork herself. Recently signing to the same home as Megan Thee Stallion and Young Thug, we’re expecting nothing but big things down the line from the singer.
