Kiesza recently burst onto the music scene with her hit single "Hideaway" and its accompanying music video. The single-shot dance video has gained over seventy-five million views on YouTube and has led to performances on some of the biggest talk shows such as Jimmy Kimmel Live and Late Show with David Letterman.
On NME Basement Sessions, Kiesza strayed far from her usual electro-pop style and performed the grunge classic, "Heart-Shaped Box." With very little resemblance both stylistically and musically to Nirvana's front man, Kurt Cobain, it may come as a surprise that she would cover their hit song. Although her performance did not have the raspy edge that Cobain brought to the track, Kiesza held her ground. One has to give credit to an artist brave enough to step that far out of her comfort zone.
