Live Act


A multi-dimensional teen with a neo-spiritual vibe and songwriting abilities beyond his years KIAN wrote “Waiting” at the age of 14, recorded it at 15 and releases his sophomore track just as he turns 16 years old.

Written with the insights of someone much older Waiting is a reflection on the trepidation behind uncharted feelings when interested in someone new. “It’s about that feeling of uncertainty when you don’t know if they like you back – I know it’s childish but I reckon everyone has found themselves in this insecure hole at some point in their lives no matter what age” says KIAN. The song is written as a story; guy meets a girl and is battling with himself over whether or not he should express his feelings about her or just wait. “Hidden within the lyrics are some things that relate to me personally along with metaphorical thing to move the story along.”

A deep pop song this infectious track will be performed live for the first time at BIGSOUND 2018. Here KIAN will debut his four piece band performing a 30 minute set featuring all his own material except for one banger track by his favourite artist Frank Ocean. KIAN’s debut “Too Far Gone” was instantly added to triple j who listed him in their ‘best new music’ earlier this year. Both this song and “Waiting” will feature on a forthcoming album to be released in the first half of 2019.
