One of our favorite up-and-coming MCs, K.Flay straddles a tightrope of hip-hop, electro and indie rock, concocting a slightly indefinable but immensely gratifying sound. The musician, born Kristine Flaherty, has recently hit the road as she celebrates her last biting EP, Crush Me, and prepares for her upcoming sophomore long play, Every Where Is Some Where. Like her new track “Black Wave,” her shows pulse and jolt as Flay kicks, jumps and flips to the beats. Photographer Julia Drummond caught up with the musician for some moody portraits and electric live shots during her stop at Bowery Ballroom in New York. K.Flay is on tour in the United States throughout May with select dates in June and July.
