Tasty Track of 2014 Number 8: Hideaway by Kiesza
This year, we had a modest 90s house music renaissance (which worked along side the continued and bigger fascination with 80s pop). Such a renaissance, though small, helped artists like Kiesza enter the public consciousness. Her breakout single, "Hideaway," is a smart homage to house music from two decades ago and makes a case for word-of-mouth promotion. The tune worked its way into dance clubs and Youtube, arriving on radio by the summer and early fall. Like many club artists from the period she emulates, "Hideaway" may be Kiesza's sole mainstream hit, but she has a promising dance music career ahead of her.
