'A Melancholy', the new single from Cate Kileva is available  now


But I only want to dance a dance with you 

And I can only feel little bits of truth

The rest is drowned awash with fate

Passed down through generations.

With this song I became transfixed by a particular piano melody that repeated and I played around with it and brought in other echoing melodies here and there to augment it. I let the song guide me at every turn and I hope I created something resembling the ethereal dreaminess I felt was possible. The result is quite cinematic in nature and also haunting and a little bit goth, like my other songs.


‘A Melancholy’ was mixed and mastered by Stuart at Analog Heart. Artwork by Caitlin Worthington and Studio Papa.


Running scared we open up our eyes

To kiss the vast empty sky .
