Interview: "Undone" - Kiara Mali
‘Undone’ is a haunting and melancholy song; what was your inspiration behind it, and what emotion do you hope it evokes in your audience?
Kiara: Power is what I wanted people to feel. The hopelessness the song expresses is the result of not making a decision. So rage was needed to escape the trap of saying 'maybe'.
What is one of your favorite moments from filming the video for ‘Undone?’
Kiara: We spent three weekends together for this video, I loved every second of it. We were a team of super creative people, everybody added his or her own skills and passion for making this idea come to life. I think the most magical moment was when we were done filming after a long night shooting. The sun was rising, we were still awake, exhausted, and fulfilled after almost one month of work together.
Who are some of your biggest musical influences and inspirations?
Kiara: For the production of “Undone” me and the producer Chris Kling were inspired by artists like Billie Eilish and Lana del Rey, but also Jack White and The Black Keys.
How would you describe your unique sound?
Kiara: Powerful alternative rock productions with very vulnerable stories behind them.
What made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in music, and how did you get started?
Kiara: I have been playing gigs as a singer-songwriter since the age of sixteen. I´ve always felt the need to express emotion, so starting a solo music project was the perfect way for me to follow this passion.
What are your upcoming plans for your musical journey? What should fans be on the lookout for?
Kiara: We plan to play some amazing live shows with a full band this summer. And there will be new music out soon!
