KAYE Shares Powerful Single “Too Much”

KAYE, the musical moniker of Charlene Kaye, has relaunched her solo project with a bang. Her explosive new statement for her followup single “Too Much” is part music video, part performance art piece—the work of an artist risking everything to bet on herself.
“I wrote this song to make sense of a period of great emotional confusion in my life,” KAYE says. “I had made many drastic changes at the same time regarding my career and my relationships and was left feeling totally unanchored, like I just blew up my life for no reason – even though at my core I knew it was necessary for my own growth.”
The “Too Much” video was inspired by Yoko Ono’s 1964 performance work  “Cut Piece,” in which Ono sits on a stage wearing her best suit, inviting audience members to cut and keep a piece of her clothing until she is completely exposed. Instead of having other people remove pieces of her outfit, KAYE is the agent of her own destruction and rebirth. The outfit is made up of thousands of individual pieces of fabric that took hours to arrange on her body. Eventually they slowly fly off, get danced off and get ripped off from an orderly, logical place into utter chaos.
