Awwww….adorbs.

Our new hot lesbian musical power couple is up and coming young musicians K.FLAY and MIYA FOLICK and earlier this month they publicly announced their relationship via Instagram…

Where else do you announce your new hot celebrity relationship?

The two just did a cute interview with GQ magazine with writer Eve Barlow:

On June 2, the L.A.-based alt musicians Miya Folick and K.Flay (born Kristine Flaherty) made a public display of their love for the first time one year after they met. Each posted Instagram pictures from a selfie session Miya had captured of the two of them snuggling on a couch. That L-shaped sofa is in Kristine’s Silverlake apartment, where we’re sitting in early June. Miya and Kristine tenderly caress each other—a hand on a knee, a nose in an elbow crease. It’s very sweet and immediately clear how in love they are. You don’t leave their company feeling like you’re going to die alone.

AND, K.Flay has a new single out today (SISTER), and an album out on July 12 (Solutions) and a tour going on RIGHT now with a stop at Seattle’s Showbox SoDo on September 11th (tix HERE!)

‘SISTER’
Today, Grammy-nominated, Night Street/Interscope artist K.Flay, released another irresistible track taken from her forthcoming album ‘Solutions,’ due for release on July 12. ‘Sister’ is available on all digital platforms and as part of an album PRE-ORDER from today.
The Illinois born-and-raised artist speaks on what her interpretation of sisterhood is and her inspiration behind the song: “Being a sister isn’t about gender or DNA. It’s about unselfconscious love. About saying I’M HERE, I LOVE YOU, IT’S OK TO BE YOURSELF, and hearing those words echoed back. Not because you asked for them, but because they’re true. Girls are sisters and boys are sisters. Dads are sisters to their sons. Mothers sisters to their mothers too.” Dedicating the song to her own step-brother and sister, she continues, “I’ve come to understand that family is created. Family is a verb. It’s something you build day by day, sometimes in the hot sun and sometimes when everything is going wrong.”
Listen to ‘Sister’ HERE.
K.Flay is playing a handful of live dates this month, including two festival appearances at Bonnaroo in Tennessee and LOVELOUD in Utah. This fall, she will be performing at Austin City Limits as well as embarking on THE SOLUTIONS TOUR, which kicks off on September 3 in Phoenix, AZ. Following a 19-city run in North America, she’ll venture abroad for the UK and European leg of the tour, performing in London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, Prague, Munich, Frankfurt and more.

SOLUTIONS the album was catalyzed by a three-year whirlwind of world touring and prolific output, which found K.Flay seeking to remind herself of the simple pleasures in life again. Inspired by such an awakening and need for self-care, she’s translated this newfound acceptance into ten genre-bending bangers for the new album, explaining: “When got home from tour, I was in a dark place,” she admits. “Eventually, I made a decision to focus on the things that actually make me happy: walking around my neighborhood, drawing in notebooks with markers, talking to my mom on the phone. I thought, ‘What did I do as a kid to be happy?’ As a child, you don’t have access to alcohol, drugs, sex, caffeine. I looked back, when I had fun just by making music. I remembered the first time I wrote a song, burned a CD, and played it in my car. It’s the closest thing I’ve ever had to a religious experience. I reconnected with that spirit and stopped taking shit so seriously.” The resulting output in turn showcases K.Flay widening the scope of her signature style by incorporating a variety of analog synths along with live bass and guitar, all the while, bobbing and weaving her way between pop, rock, hip-hop, and electronic moods.
Talking about the title of the album, K.Flay reveals, “The title SOLUTIONS came to me really early in the process,” she continues. “The solution to almost every problem is usually really simple. For me, it’s so basic: staying connected to the people I love, taking care of myself the way I’d want my friends to take care of themselves, and doing things I know are going to make me happy – not what social media or strangers or society tells me. So many of my past records were about problems. Right now I’m in a place where I’m looking for some light. Balance is important. Life doesn’t have to be chaotic in order to be meaningful.”
