Kylie Price braves the Otago winds in music video for 'Stay'

wired 24/06/2022

Kiwi songstress Kylie Price may not be staying in Aotearoa right now, but in her latest music video 'Stay', she's planted her bed and bedside table in the hills of Otago.

The song, written during lockdowns in 2021, talks about drunk Saturday nights and lonely Sunday mornings, and describes the story of a relationship that only exists between sunset and sunrise.

Where do you call home?

Even though I'm currently working in London, I still refer back home as Dunedin, New Zealand.

What inspired your song 'Stay'?

Stay was inspired from a time where I watched one of my friend's go through a period of Loneliness. It sparked the idea of the various kinds of situations we put ourselves into so that we don't feel lonely, even if it's just a  temporary fix.

What's your proudest musical moment?

The first time someone sent me a video of them hearing my song on NZ mainstream radio - might seem small, but it was a massive turning point for me confidence wise.

What's a Kiwi song you're loving at the moment?

I have two! I've been blasting"High Again" by Rory Noble and "Run Deep" by Deva Mahal and Coco Peila. Both of these songs are outragously easy to drift away to, my favourite thing to do with music.

What's one artist you would love to collaborate with?

This is the most impossible question. 5 people (it's the best I could do and to be honest changes all the time depending where I'm musically at) would be Tenille Townes, Sam Fischer, Julia Michaels, JP Saxe and Taylor Swift

Where can we find you on social media?

Facebook, Instagram, TikTok!

Now let's play a little game of 'This or That':
Sneakers or dress shoes? 
Sneakers, gotta have appropriate footwear in case there's a Zombie apocalypse

Planning or winging it? Both! But never wing a menu at a Restuarant.

Winter or summer? Summer everytime!
