emilytreadgold #1, New 9 Tracks

We've been NEEDING some new Kitten and their new song is perfection. Glad we can dance around our house and pretend we're Chloe on stage.

Frontwoman Chloe Chaidez says, "We wrote 'My House' during the early days of quarantine. Nobody knew exactly how to feel, and a sense of disassociation definitely bubbles within the song. The reversion to childhood behaviors, the misplaced frustrations, the nagging feeling of being a plot point in a disaster movie- we put all of this into our song because, well, there's not much else to do right now. That said, we're so grateful to have each other and our music to keep us sane."

We are READY for this new era of The Aces, and they have blessed us with their new song that feels spot on right now.

"Tryna to live in the moment
I check that screen just one more time
My phone is tryna to kill me
On read, I feel hopeless"

Nothing worse than being left on read.

Does Kim Petras even know how to make a bad song? It's just not in her DNA, only bops. Her new song "Malibu" is everything you expect, hyper-pop at its finest with sugar-soaked lyrics and those insane choruses that you can never get out of your head. It makes me wish we had a normal summer so I could blast this.

Bless Kacy Hill for being the most relatable artist ever right now. I'm obsessed with her gorgeous melodies and poetic lyrics. She always hits the nail on the head.

She wrote on Instagram, "I hope you’re doing alright. I’ve been very anxious but I’m ok. Anxiety is tough sometimes and idk I hate talking about it because it makes me feel annoying but if you deal w anxiety, I feel for you. I’ve been here on and off for many years and since December it’s the worst it’s been since I was 16 or so. It’s the type of anxiety that taking a bath and putting a face mask on doesn’t fix and quite honestly it’s embarrassing to have panic attacks when I go most places. But I’m getting better and doing everything I can and again idk why I’m even writing about it but I just hope you’re doing alright and taking care of yourself too. Anyway. Unkind is out Friday and it’s not about being anxious."

Tei Shi is the definition of a unique artist, her sultry genre-bending songs feel so fresh.

She says, "Die 4 Ur Love’ is a song about the end of the world as you know it. About losing someone or something you never knew you could lose, and then all of a sudden your reality shifts. All the things you would have done, or said, the love you could have given, and being willing to die over it. I wrote it right after the new year when I was feeling a sense of impending doom and darkness, which now feels surreal to see taking form in a real way around the world and in how the rest of 2020 has unfolded.”

Hayley Williams basically shaped my adolescence, she's an icon for all women in music and her ability to change and transform is incredible. Her vulnerable new album is a MUST-listen, she really peels back all the layers of her life. It's amazing to see an artist with such diverse talents. Truly a masterpiece.
