Adria Kain Reimagines Debut Single with “Ocean (Reprise)”

Adria Kain goes down memory lane by going back to her debut and reshaping it in “Ocean (Reprise)”.

The Toronto artist is a singer, songwriter and musician who debuted her single, “Ocean”, back in 2015. Since then, Adria Kain has released a number of singles and two EPs – DE{com}pressed and Still in Love, in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Along the way, she has also been on a journey of understanding and acceptance; identifying as a mas-presenting, queer black woman.

Having previously released two singles this year – “Alone in Kenzo” and “Classic (feat. Leila Dey)”, Adria Kain has released her third single of the year – “Ocean (Reprise)” – which is featured on her upcoming album, When Flowers Bloom.

“Ocean (Reprise)” is a tender and sophisticated future-soul and indie-R&B track infused with passionate vocals and spoken-word phrases from Kain. The song tells the story of running away from an old love to find a new one but without getting the closure or full healing needed.

The reimagined version of “Ocean” is a representation of how much Adria Kain has evolved as an artist.

“It’s beyond me how this song came full circle. I remember where I was in life when I first wrote it years ago. I knew it was a good song, not quite my favourite, but it had an important message that I think even went over my own head. I wrote it from a place of sadness. I wanted to create a voice for myself. One that I could run to whenever there was no one else. One that would create a platform big enough for me to exist in without boundaries, like the Ocean, because what’s bigger than that really.” – Adria Kain

Since her debut, Adria Kain has been featured in: The Fader, Complex, HYPEBAE and more, who all praise her artistry.
