Remember when Madonna was releasing videos in her early days that depicted a simpler life for a pop star, one spent on the streets of New York, running around with local boys and wearing trendy clothing? Canadian newcomer Kiesza (pronounced Ky-za), a 25-year-old ex-ballerina/ex-Navy member, emulates the fashionable days of Reagan-era street dancing (on the sidewalks of Brooklyn) in her video for “Hideaway,” itself a house track that recalls the best of ’90s club jams.
“Hideaway” comes via indie label Lokal Legend, but give it some time; if Kiesza’s got more delectable dance tracks like this one up her sleeve, we can totally see this budding diva breaking out in a big way, and moving up to more towering heights.
Watch Kiesza’s “Hideaway” video above. The single has an April 14 release date, and it’s truly one of the great new pop discoveries of 2014.
