Kira May | Never Broke a Bone (SouthernSouls)
Our friends at Southern Souls are always pushing out great musical online content, and this video is no different. Thanks to Southern Souls videographer Mitch Fillion you can watch a live performance by Toronto artist Kira May and Co. of her song “Never Broke a Bone”. The sexy electronic song makes use of guitar, computerized effects, and live samples of May breathing — overlapping a variety of her utterances behind her sultry lead vocals. The performance is both auditory and visual, built around a beautiful chorus about love, the body, and a freedom that feels more soulful and metaphysical than literal: “Run, run, run, run / As far as you can / Run, run, run, run / Away from your skin.” Notes: Photo comes from the artist’s facebook page and was taken by Eric McCauley. You can follow Kira May at facebook, twitter and bandcamp. The lyrics are unofficial. — David D. Robbins Jr.
