“Everything about this band seems to disorient your perceptions. For a band with a slightly tough-guy aesthetic, they are real sweethearts. Their lyrics are mostly heartfelt and honest reflections on relationships. They even have a violin underpinning most of their songs, to lighten their indie rock abruptness. It’s hard to dislike these guys. In the song “Birthday Suite” the lead singer and guitarist, Shawn employs some impressive finger-tapping on his guitar. It is reminiscent of many late 90′s and early 2000′s math-rock efforts, but juxtaposed with a violin and heavy handed drummer. Seriously awesome…. understanding comes without asking anything. Just listen. Stop fretting.”-Seattle Show Gal

Hey V Kay is the work of singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and Boise, Idaho native Karen Havey. Heavily inspired by 80’s synthesized melodies and electronic dance beats, her music uses a blend of guitar, strings, and synthesizers to create a multi-layered, cinematic quality sound enhanced by her unique and androgynous vocals.
