LOONY: Some Kinda Love

A new cut from the highly-praised Scarborough R&B singer/songwriter captivates via her soulful and unaffected vocal performance.

LOONY: Some Kinda Love

By Kerry Doole

LOONY- Some Kinda Love (Indie): Her choice of stage name may be a mite questionable, but that hasn't prevented a real buzz from quickly growing around young Scarborough soul singer/songwriter Kira Huszar.

The critics are dishing out superlatives, and this new standalone cut is being featured at CBC's Here + Now as its Song of the Week.

In a press release, LOONY explains that the song "is about a moment in your day where you just somehow feel more connected to the beautiful things in the world, rather than not. This can be kind of a rare and fleeting feeling for me, and I wanted to try and encapsulate that moment - and freeze it, almost - into something that just feels good."


Some Kinda Love vividly showcases her soulful voice, with her delivery here bordering on the nonchalant, to appealing effect. No vocal gymnastics here, as this accompanying live clip demonstrates.

LOONY has been working closely with producer Akeel Henry, on last year's Part 1 EP and subsequent singles Tread and Dare You (feat. Quadry).

She supported Rhye on Canadian dates in September, has her debut album coming out in 2020. One to watch very closely.
