Rising Midwestern star Klay Cartier has dropped his contemplative new track, "My Type".
A product of the American Midwest, Klay Cartier was born in St Louis in Illinois and raised in Kansas City, and he embodies the region’s hardworking spirit in his recent career ascent. He’s made his name by combining confident and brash aggression with smooth vocals that summarise his approach to letting conflicting emotions share the same space.
His new track, “My Type”, is a true calling card for the upcoming star, crafting a contemplative soundscape through which Cartier puts forward the conflict and self-sabotage of looking for the right person. It sits happily in the contradiction of thinking you’ve found what you want, only to confront your own issues again.
On the track, Cartier explains his intent, “My Type is all about the current situation this generation faces which is going after the same kind of person, over and over again expecting things to be different. Usually our dating preferences are most likely a “type” rather than an actual preference meaning we go after someone who peaks our interest and sparks a fire in us but all to often that fire sizzles out quickly and leaves us colder and more broken than we were before, so we’re stuck in this cycle where we keep meeting the same person in different bodies because we haven’t learned our lesson and we’re not ready to go deep into that self reflection where we can actually confront and overcome this problem so instead we’re in a constant cycle of self sabotaging via dating people we know aren’t good for us. If you’re afraid to go against the grain then sadly all you’ll find is the same thing.”
