One of the joys of the internet music culture is that it’s very easy to find new artists and songs to listen to. One day my sister and I happened to chance upon an obscure artist named Kyra. Of course, we had to check this out. I mean, it’s not a super common name and we were excited by the find. Then we saw the cover art for the track and noticed that other Kyra and I don’t look all that much alike.
It only got better when we realized that she had a single titled “Get Your Swag On.” It goes a little something like this:
I really like the part at the beginning where she’s just whispering the word swag. I was going to say that I also have mad dace skills like that, but I don’t believe in lying to you readers. Much.
Let’s get real for a moment. The whole concept of swag is a little lost on me. Unless you’re referring to the older definition of swag, the one where it was an acronym for Stuff We All Get. Like it just meant the free stuff they handed out at fairs or wherever. And I’m all about free stuff. Especially if it’s books or food. But like “swagga” is lost on me. I have yet to attain that level of coolness.
But wait, there’s more…
Kyra is also the name of a band. So of course I had to check them out too. Here’s one of their videos:
The first 30 seconds made it pretty clear that we’re kindred spirits (just kidding, not sure if you can tell over the internet).
Kyra. It’s a happening name these days.
