At first listen, the strong pop melodies and catchy hooks in her songs make Kiiara sound like just another Scandinavian singer making her mark in electro pop. The difference, however, between her and other pop stars is huge; she was born and raised in a little town in nearby Illinois and has only released six songs. Add that to the fact that she works a day job at a hardware store, and you have a puzzling artist that leaves many questions unanswered.

Most surprising in Berhe’s work is her ability to match her voice with instrumentals without overpowering, as well as her impressive songwriting skills in general. The structures of all four songs were clean and refined – but particularly “Lost Boy” – was novel enough to peak at 75 on the Billboard Hot 100. Berhe plans to release another album in the spring.
