Hello, dearest readers and music fans let’s give a warm welcome to Kiey. Kiey is a Vietnamese artist who has been wowing music fans everywhere with music like “Kiss You in the Rain” and “Summer Fire “. His latest music offering is titled “White Boy I sat next to on the Plane”. The song was released on 19th January and let me tell you, it is audible poetry and it is beautiful, get ready, and let me tell you more about the song.
As soon as the song begins, you know you’re in for a sonic treat. It opens with delicate, dreamy, and beautiful piano sounds that transport you into this ethereal world Kiey has created through music as he sings about his own experience on a plane where he was obsessing over a beautiful guy sitting across the aisle.
The words in this song are just beautiful and emotional. At its core, it’s a ballad about a missed opportunity. Borne out of Kiey’s personal experience of seeing a beautiful stranger and instead of summoning his courage and speaking to him, he rather admires him afar and imagines a life they would have built together if they were together. He uses lyrics like “We could have been so happy forever” and he emphasizes how he wished things would have been in an alternate universe. The lyrics are simple straightforward and very relatable and the soft and beautiful vocal performance allows you to step into KIEY’s headspace and world and see the experience through his eyes.
In this song, Kiey uses loops and samples to experiment with a more straightforward instrumental indie sound that features relaxed pianos, percussion, and strings. Although he borrows the style of his inspirations like Lana Del Rey and Troye Sivan, Kiey is developing his unique style and it is evident in this song.
In conclusion “White Boy I sat next to on the Plane “ by Kiey is a beautiful masterpiece, because of the personal nature of the story behind the song it is that much more meaningful and relatable because we have all admired someone from afar and built up our life with them in our heads before. The minimalistic piano sounds are majestic and carry the lyrics throughout the song. The song tells listeners that KIEY is super talented and I can’t wait to see what he puts out next.
