Kaylah hopes to release her first EP next year.

KORUMBURRA’S Kaylah Thomas has excitedly released her first ground-breaking single, ‘Are The Angels’.

The single was launched across all music platforms last Friday, and the young talent couldn’t be happier for the world to listen.

She found the time to create the piece while studying at university and describes it as almost “genre-less”, being a mix of pop, contemporary ballad and indie.

Kaylah said she couldn’t be happier with her creation and its release.

“It’s been a very big learning process because I’ve never done anything like this,” she said.

“I’ve had a few road bumps in terms of getting it mastered but it’s finally there and I’m really happy.

“There’s a quote in the song that’s quite relevant: ‘Don’t let perfect get in the way of good.’

“I think I’m a bit of a perfectionist at times, and I’m very good at picking things apart, but I’m really proud of where this song came from and why it started and how much it has grown.”

Kaylah said the lyrics were inspired from the perspective of someone grieving.

“I think the themes of loss and love are quite closely intertwined throughout the lyrics,” she said.

“It reminds us that we need to support each other, especially in times of grief and loss, and that’s kind of what the song discusses.”

Kaylah said she was also fortunate to work with local music producer Greg Walker, who helped elevate the song to the next level.

“That was an amazing experience working with an industry professional,” she said.

“Greg, who I’m so grateful and honoured to call him my producer, helped me make some small changes.

“For example, I had played synthetic strings but he could play the cello and violin, so that totally uplifted the piece.”

Music has been a lifelong passion for Kaylah, who has already been making a name for herself during her high school years in Korumburra.

“I was really fortunate to be the principal vocalist in the Victorian State School Spectacular,” she said.

“I got to perform at Hisense Arena to an audience of 14,000.

“It made me realise how much I wanted to continue to pursue music and I’ve always liked songwriting but struggled to finish songs.

“The song I’ve released is the first song I’ve ever really felt emotionally driven to do.”

Kaylah hopes to release her first EP next year.
