Kiesa Rae Ellestad, known professionally as Kiesza, is a Canadian singer and multi-instrumentalist from Calgary, who has most recently worked in New York City and London. She first grabbed international attention with Hideaway, which peaked at #5 on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 Chart. Since then, she has found success with a number of compelling singles and records, collaborating with the likes of Duran Duran, Skrillex and Diplo, and written songs for international artists like Rihanna.
With Love Me With Your Lie, Kiesza’s vocal climbs impressively high as usual, but this time we were surprised with a more mellow hook/drop, both vocal and production-wise. We’re loving the airier tones in her voice in this track, and how it blends with the retro production elements.
