Kalina & Kiana - 'That Thing'

On the first day of summer, June 21, 2019, BWH Music Group released the sizzling hot summer compilation album, 'That Summer, Vol. 2, by Various Artists.' The album offers 16 songs from internationally acclaimed and award-wining independent artists Kalina & Kiana’s song "That Thing” is one of the phenomenal songs featured on the album.

Kalina & Kiana explain that “That Thing” is about "all of the feelings you have at the beginning of a relationship. You’re nervous, you stutter, they drive you crazy (in a good way, of course), and you couldn’t be happier - that indescribable thing that the other person does puts you in a state of euphoria.”

“That Thing” is delicious pop music – it’s sweet and innocent, charming and clever, fun and smart - all at the same time. The lyrics recapture a piece of pop music that is sorely missing in today's scene while remaining hip and contemporary. “That thing you do is hard for me to explain. You make me feel like, I outta be Lois Lane. When you hold my hand, I hold my breath and I smile But you look my way, I look away and I sigh.” The nostalgic vibe of the lyrics are complemented by charming harmonies and backup vocals. The vibe to "That Thing" is incredibly refreshing as these two young women sing about what it feels like to have a crush on someone new. “That Thing” is without a doubt commercial top-40 ready. Check out the video below to catch the spell-binding day-in-a-life story that unfolds to a surprise ending.

Kalina & Kiana have a wonderful musical chemistry; their artistic DNA flows through their songs creating a mesmerizing unity while, at the same time, each sibling contributes their own sugar and spice for an ever-engaging music experience.


About Kalina & Kiana:

Kalina & Kiana are California songwriting siblings who specialize in Poetic Pop. In 2007, the 11 & 13 year old sisters formed an all-girl band called "The Raymies”- who would perform more than 100 shows over the next 3 years, while John Stamos produced “The Raymies" TV pilot for Disney that was scheduled to replace Hannah Montana. The band imploded and Kalina & Kiana entered a development deal for a musical TV project in Europe. While waiting for the European show to evolve, they created music under the name "Rocky's Revival” just in time to face another challenge - Kalina was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She completed chemotherapy and is now in complete remission. During the treatments, Kalina performed in a wig, as the band opened for groups like The Bangles and Justin Bieber. K&K continued to write for other projects, like: “Miraculous Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir” and after waiting nearly 5 years for the European show, the girls renegotiated to focus on their music. “Maggie & Bianca: Fashion Friends,” now in Season 3 on Netflix. Kalina & Kiana continue to write songs for and make guest appearances on the show. Finally free, the girls have shed “Rocky’s Revival” and now focus on “Poetic Pop”, for the project that bears their names - Kalina & Kiana.
