Kalahara are Lydia Kaye and Lex Shellard.
After a guest vocal from Lydia on a previous project of Lex’s the duo realised they both had a desire to create music on a deeper level that finally connects the dots and lets them express what they have always wanted to say.
Together they create a compelling combination of soaring female vocals and sumptuous harmonies over a cinematic backdrop and bass heavy electronic beats.
Their ultimately unique sound evokes a subtle fragility from the aesthetic of dance music but with the soul and authenticity of true songwriting.
Their songs reflect the ambiguity that we all have as humans, occupying the space between light and dark, with the listener’s interpretation as important as the music itself.
Melodic, intelligent, addictive…. “broken but beautiful”.
