“Cheshire Kitten,” the new single by KAYE, is “a feminist future-funk anthem as eccentric as a Lewis Carroll character and as catchy as Chaka Khan.” That’s the opinion of PopCrush, which recently featured a stream of the huge and exciting new stand-alone single from the solo artist who is also known for her work as one of the lead vocalists in chamber-pop outfit San Fermin. “Women in the entertainment industry are often put in boxes and there’s an urge from the media to categorize us as only one thing,” KAYE told PopCrush. “So the song celebrates the fact that we are versatile creatures who can be lots of contradictory things at once. We can be technically capable and sexual, aggressive and soft, breadwinners and maternal figures—and I wanted the song and dance to reflect that.”
