Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith composes bright, fluid soundscapes on a variety of synthesizers. Excited by the endless possibilities of electronic instruments, her music is filled with vivid, expressive melodies along with her warped, ethereal vocals.

  • Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith revels in the plasticity of electronic sound, stretching and twisting it with colorful, kinetic abandon.
    Philip Sherburne
    Pitchfork
  • Smith sees the human, the organic, and the cosmic cast aloft together, spinning and enveloping – the world, illustrated as perfect and beautiful.
    Sammy Jones
    Crack Magazine
  • Smith paints an even lusher world using cosmic swoops, squelches and lots of her highly processed vocals. Sounds don’t align with the rhythms, and Smith’s voice is awash in alien echoes.
    Christopher R. Weingarten
    Rolling Stone Magazine
  • Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith draws out the organic qualities of her Buchla modular synth. But The Kid sparks a bodily pleasure alongside her music’s cerebral delights.
    Sasha Geffen

  • Smith comes from a line of musical synthesists as eager to push at the fringes of structure as they are devoted to those humming tones.
