Debut Dark Electric Single ‘Caving’ by Ciqala

In a world conforming to generic pop conventions to stay on top, it’s hard to find artists willing to push the boundaries for the sake of art. One who is still willing to keeping fighting is Ciqala with her musical weapon in the form of her new single Caving.’

Yafit Rahamim-Fleisher, otherwise known as Ciqala, has teamed up with producer Shai Pelled to create the hypnotically dark electro rock single ‘Caving.’ The feel of the song can be compared to the likes of Within Temptation with its oddly beautiful vocals and its ability to feel as if you have been transported into a twisted fairy-tale. This is not shocking as Ciqala is influenced by artists such as Depeche Mode and brit-pop acts Blur, Pulp and Suede. As well as being drawn to music composed by Danny Elfman to add to that fairy-tale persona of the song.

On the surface the theme of the song comes across as one of breaking free of confines or trying to decipher reality from illusion. This idea is not surprising as the concept Ciqala has created is one inspired by Native American culture with a focus on spiritualism and simplicity as well as the purity of nature. With these themes in mind the song ‘Caving’ conveys the idea that everything ‘is just an illusion’ because ‘as we grow older nothing remains’ and people shouldn’t be so attached to the materials of life. The idea that these things cannot be taken with us after we are gone but we are all guilty of giving into materialistic desires as Ciqala sings about ‘feel[ing] ashamed’. The single itself feels like a spiritual journey when listening to it through ethereal vocals, heavy drums, and an alluring electric beat that could be something directly from The Lost Boys.

‘Caving’ is perfect for people seeking that something other from their music taste but don’t want something invading or too heavy. Ciqala is no stranger to the music industry having previously performed under the pseudonym of Y-Fi where she began her journey and is one to look out for in the future.
