Steam is just rising off of Kiesza's latest "So Deep" and if you were looking for the backing soundtrack to all your summer flings and fantasies, well, this is that track. Yes, I'm a little late to dive into "So Deep" as its one of the fabulous four numbers on the Canadian vocalist's excellent Hideaway EP (out now), but no corner of time could have prepared me for all the sexy wexy that is coming out at me on this.
"So Deep" is in the same league as all the midnight sexual heals Maxwell scribed on 1996's Urban Hang Suite --- and if we want to get technical --- this song escaped off of Janet Jackson's classic Velvet Rope album (direct attention to "Anything"), and forgot to tell Janet about it. Yes. This is some serious between-the-sheets soul with a smattering of kinetic house by song's close-out and Kiesza handles all of this gallantly. It's no secret that Kiesza has become one of my favorite new acts of 2014. She's just been so consistent and on-point that it's silly to not indulge in her crusade to bring the (and gosh, I hate typing this) the sexy back into R&B. Take to the sky with this natural high and scoop up the Hideaway EP so you can be like all the cool kids.
