KIYAN Pulls at Your Heart Strings with Stripped Version of "Differences"
New York-based recording artist KIYAN releases "Differences (Stripped)" -- an acoustic version of his latest EDM-inspired track of the same name. Comprised only of KIYAN on piano and vocals, the recording is juxtaposed against the heavy production value of the original, which was conjured up by NYC's electro mastermind, Lonshi.
“When I work with electronic producers, I always do this so I can make peace with purely the melody against the harmony. So, I strip it down to chords to write the song through, and this is what I got. It catches a moment in my life that I wouldn’t normally share. Interestingly enough though, I think this version has a little more optimism about the future. Its vulnerable, but also more assured in itself the next time around."
