This new Hayley Kiyoko song (and video) is *so* good

Hayley Kiyoko released a very good album in 2019 but it came out at the literal same time as Kacey Musgraves’ Golden Hour and probably didn’t quite get the attention it deserved.

BUT NEVER MIND! This seems to be the start of the next era, and I Wish is GREAT. I love how the relatively fragile, high topline of the chorus contrasts with the harsher verses, and the middle-8 is a thing of beauty. Argh. Well done to all involved.
