KAVYA (Kavya Trehan) is a singer-songwriter, recording and performing artist from New Delhi, India who's been performing since the age of 14. Over the course of time, she's collaborated with some of the leading producers in India and toured with her band, MOSKO. Her solo project is a celebration of raw emotion and her roots, where all songs have been developed from guitar parts and trusty voice-notes. In order to constantly evolve as an artist, in 2016 she started writing music using Abelton. Since then, she is on a relentless spree of releasing her own material that has more of a R&B, electronic and indie-pop feel. After the critically acclaimed release of her singles, Underscore, Golden and Quin - KAVYA is focusing on her solo project with an upcoming EP, "Know Me Better" in 2021.
Kavya - Know Me Better
‘Underscore’, her first solo release, expresses the gut need to not take things too seriously and the rewards of misdirection, as the best lessons in life are learnt when you dust yourself off after a fall. Pairing KAVYA’s blissful vocal chops with bleepy, bloopy synths and ambient beats. “Underscore” is a real downtempo delight that’s sure to appeal to fans of the Majestic Casual label.
“Golden” is an ode of self-love atop sparse percussions, bass lines and soft piano chords. Her songwriting continues to feature a carefree structural approach, lending her songs a conversational quality through sporadic lyrical phrases and melodic variance, while making the track abstract enough to avoid being overtly pop. With ‘Golden’, Trehan shifts her downtempo-rooted music away from ‘Underscore’s playful dream pop towards R&B-inspired sobriety – adding a fresh variation in her upward trajectory as a solo artist.
