Denmark’s most exciting future-pop prospect Ea Kaya is back with new single Cruel To Be Kind, an infectious anthem to tough-love and the power of telling it like it is. Kaya’s strong pop-presence might remind you of Natasha Bedingfield, but the sharp wit and melodic style of hook-making is all her own.

Showcasing her considerable vocal range, Ea Kaya takes on the modern phenomenon of passive engagement, and offers the alternative to a life spent chasing dollar signs, or curled up on the couch. Cruel To Be Kind, the latest from Ea Kaya, shows us the transformative power of inspiration that is embedded in our human hearts. If honesty is the stuff of true friendship, Ea Kaya is a friend to us all.

It's up to you, keep on wasting your hours and years - smoke it away, you can drown all your fears
