Wary + Strange arrived on June 21 and marked a breakout for the Tennessee-based singer-songwriter and guitarist. Kiah recently made her Grand Ole Opry debut, performed at the Newport Folk Festival and the Americana Music Awards where she was nominated for Emerging Artist of the Year.
Amythyst detailed “Fancy Drones (Fracture Me)” in a statement:
This song started as a poem. First World modern society allows us so much access to technology, material possessions, medication for our ailments, supplements to make up for a poor diet. All of this convenience because we are convinced that being workaholics makes us who we are. We become cogs in a large machine. It’s a tale as old as time and we are all susceptible to it. This is just another blues song that laments that tale in a fresh way.
