With BRÅVES’ hands in the production, minimalistic beats soar and cut through the tracks on Kayls' debut EP Modern Savages, each sound meticulously thought out and placed as to not interfere with the album’s centerpiece: the vocals. Kayls has always looked up to the strong women who came before her—Stevie Nicks, Madonna, Debbie Harry—as well as those paving the way for her generation like Sia and Lana Del Rey, and channels their confidence and power in her own voice and lyrics.
On the EP opener “Porcelain,” she condemns the men in the music industry who’ve made her feel like nothing more than a commodity that could be bought and controlled. On “Summer,” she holds on to the last moment with a lover, as one tightly grasps onto the last day of summer, while “Champagne Lover” documents the moment of realization that someone isn’t good enough for you. “Modern Savages” gives commentary on a delusional generation that’s more absorbed in social media than real passion and substance, and in the closer, “Carousel,” Kayls sings of finally letting go of a past relationship.
Though each song on Modern Savages is deeply personal and written from experience, the overall message is a universal one: Never settle. Not in society, not as a woman and not in love. Growing up with a musical family in a small town, Kayls dreamed of being a musician her whole life. Through the infinite ups and downs, she never wavered and stayed true to her vision. “I want to tell people they can do anything they want,” she says. “I believe the most successful people are those that don’t give up.”
