In 2003, Flaherty enrolled in Stanford University as a psychology and sociology double major. “Simplistic, misogynistic and formulaic,” are words used by K.Flay to describe the music on the radio circa 2003. Songs like “Blingity Blang Blang” came to her after she bragged to a friend that she could imitate what was out there. According to her, the track is a “low budget rap parody that contained far too many obscenities.”
K.flay was releasing her own music until she was picked by RCA Records in 2012 after the self-release of her self-titled and I Stopped Caring in ’96 albums released back to back in 2010 and 2011. Taylor Swift praised the release of “It’s Strange”, a single K.Flay collaborated on with Louis the Child in 2015. Keeping the “DIY self-motivated” spirit of her previous ventures, K.Flay allowed fans to pre-order her first studio album Life as a Dog via PledgeMusic. This campaign exceeded her expectations by double her initial goal.
On Dec 5, 2016, K.Flay appeared Live on Seth Meyers late night television program. Throughout her performance of “Blood In The Cut” of off her Crush Me EP, K. Flay was bathed in red stage lighting, which also served to obscure individual features of her band members. K.Flay is outfitted in a black couture trench coat for the occasion. The throbbing bass line and lines about ex-lovers circle back into the chorus, “I need noise/I need the buzz of the saw/Crack of the whip/Some blood in the cut.” A video of the performance on K.Flay’s official YouTube channel has close to one hundred fifty thousand views.
