Tags: K.Flay, Eyes Shut, Grieves

I just first discovered white female hip-hop artist K.Flay from San Francisco right before the holidays. She was the opening act supporting Grieves With Budo on tour. I immediately realized how talented she was and became an instant fan. She was a new EP,  Eyes Shut, coming out this month and here is a brand new single titled “Sunburn”. We have already heard her new singleWe Hate Everyone” previously. I wanted to find out what she listens to and what she would recommend to us, so I asked!  Read her recommendations below, and tour dates follow her answers.
