Saying that Kira May’s new album is an experience sells it short. The Toronto-based artist first made a mark with her debut Health EP, which earned praise for its prominent use of looped vocals, able to create soaring soundscapes with some accompaniment on guitar and percussion. Her new record, due out this Friday, uses these techniques and expands on them to form a cohesive full-length effort. Sense is a daring fifty-five minute opus, told through the eyes and ears of an anxious empath.
