Kayla DiVenere shares a story of a secret crush with “Small Talk”

Regardless of what some may say, “small talk” is an art: the intricacies of conversation, trying to make something magical out of the banal, exhausting oneself for unpromised rewards. But art, much like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder, and singer-songwriter Kayla DiVenere has grown tired of these small gestures.

The L.A based music act openly ridicules the practice of idle conversation on her latest release, “Small Talk,” pleading instead for grand acts of desire. Nothing short of a classic romantic-comedy scene will do, a boombox outside of her window and all. It’s an endlessly-imaginative scene, and “Small Talk” is an endlessly-listenable song.

At only 20 years old, the fast-rising talent has had great success with previous singles, “Date Myself” and “Jumping the Gun.” Kayla is her truest self on “Small Talk,” as she tells a vulnerable story from her life. After developing a crush on her brother’s best friend, she was eventually inspired to confess her feelings in a way she knew best – through songwriting.
