Kiara Chettri’s brand new single, why, gives an orchestra-like grand feel to heighten the feeling and emotions of the song and lyrics. The grandeur of sadness as an emotion and English musician Sam Smith’s songs played the role of ‘muse’ for the seventeen-year-old emerging singer and songwriter Kiara Chettri’s brand new single ‘Why’. Roughly, half a year ago, Kiara concluded the release of her full length debut album titled 4 am, winning significant praise and acknowledgement for her talent as a young singer-songwriter. In her own words the journey in the world of music so far has been ‘wonderful, overwhelming and motivating’.
The NCR-based musician hopes that people understand and resonate with the emotion of the track as much as she has. In fact this new release has become her all-time favorite. Talking about the inspiration behind her new single, the school-going songstress, while preparing to go back to classes says, “The inspiration behind this song is Sam Smith. I think all of his songs have a very grand element to them which is what inspired me to make a song like ‘Why’.
Kiara states, “Since people liked my album a lot, I did feel some sort of pressure to do better in my next release and I’m very excited about my new single. While the process of writing and producing ‘Why’ was going on, I was confident that people would really like this song because it is so different from anything I have ever done before, be it the music, lyrics or vocals. There are so many instruments in this song that I have not used in any of my songs before and all of this excites me a great deal.”
Kiara Chettri’s brand new single, a haunting orchestral melody that was released globally on June 10th, 2021, deals with the emotions of loneliness & melancholy, with beautiful vocals in an intriguing, cathartic arrangement called Why. Ms. Kiara often does well-populated live sessions on Instagram and has even performed at a packed live concert at the prestigious EEMAX Global Awards organized by EEMA (Event and Entertainment Management Association) in 2019. Her previous releases have brought her a place in sought after playlists such as Women of Indie India, Rolling Stone – Hit list specially curated by Ehsaan Noorani, Radar India and box out.fhm’s 100% Indian Alternative – Best of 2020 among others.
