Baby!, the latest project from Kaley Honeycutt, has offered a free stream of her debut album Sunny F.L. as well as the video for ‘Bite My Tongue’.
Everything in the video is Honeycutt’s handiwork, right down to the backgrounds.
The name Baby! comes from something she was always shamed for growing up; being the 5’1 younger sister to four older brothers who always overshared and was oversensitive. It’s a shortened version of “Crybaby”.
Honeycutt was quickly snapped up by Yellow K Records after she shared some music online. Baby! will play an album release date on August 30 in Boston;

“‘Rearview Mirror’ is a feel-good song about leaving your past behind and finding the fun in losing control,” Kiri T said about the track in a press release. “I made a conscious decision to leave this comfort zone of Hong Kong and move to New York because I believe this is the scene I belong to and really want to see how far I can go. Challenge my limitations, hands on the driver’s wheel, full speed ahead, no regrets, not looking at my rear view mirror.”
She joined forces with director Jonah Best and solo dancer Danzel Thompson-Stout for the video that finds Kiri and Thompson-Stout taking a pleasant subway trip through NYC’s five boroughs, showing the best that each has to offer.
Kiri was initially a classically trained instrumentalist with a deep love for improvising. She discovered a passion for pop music at age 12 and set about writing electronic pop songs.
