I Don’t Know Who You Are Anymore is Kaiyah Mercedes’ Single Out Now!
Sweet and Sincere!
I Don’t Know Who You Are Anymore is the second single by 15 year old singer/songwriter Kaiyah Mercedes, and follows the release of her debut single ‘After Summer Ends’ in February 2022.
With Nirvana and Foo Fighters inspired instrumentation, and powerful lyrics, this track fills you with catchy feelings of regret and anger for someone who has done you wrong. I Don’t Know Who You Are Anymore is the perfect song to sing out loud in your car, with a hooky melody that will be sure to get stuck in your head.
Initially written as a melancholic piano ballad, Kaiyah Mercedes and Melbourne-based producer Chris Wilson flipped the sound of this song from heartbreak to indignation, creating a soundscape that draws you in with full force.
“I initially wrote this song going through a difficult period of my life, having gone through something quite upsetting and distressing. Over time though, the meaning of this song changed for me, and I started to become quite vexed about what happened, rather than sad. Creating a rock song from a piano ballad was extremely fun, but also very cathartic. I hope this song resonates with other people who have gone through a similar experience.”
Kaiyah has been writing music since 2020, self-taught in piano and guitar, and released her first single ‘After Summer Ends’ in February 2022.
