KAILEE MORGUE RELEASES LONG AWAITED DEBUT EP MEDUSA

Today, Kailee Morgue unleashes her anxiously awaited debut EP, Medusa [Republic Records]. Check it out here.

A gateway into the artist’s widescreen sonic wizardry, the four-song set includes her breakthrough “Medusa” and latest track “Discovery”—which Zane Lowe personally selected as a “World First” record on Apple Music Beats 1 just last month. Additionally, she reveals two equally majestic anthems at which to marvel. Produced by Joel Little [Lorde, Khalid], “Unfortunate Soul” tiptoes between clean guitars and glitchy beats as the songstress pleads, “I’m an unfortunate soul. It’s just the way that I roll.” Meanwhile, “Ghost of Mine” haunts and hypnotizes as her voice careens over spacious beats from producers Imad Royal and Brenton Duvall.

 “Discovery” arrived hot on the heels of the viral hit “Medusa, produced by CJ Baran [Melanie Martinez, Panic! At the Disco, Carly Rae Jepsen], quietly transformed the artist into a palpable phenomenon. Upon release, it launched to #1 on Hype Machine, was premiered by Fader and received “Best Track of the Week” by The New York Times, Line of Best Fit, MTV, Coup de Main and reached #2 on the Canadian viral chart on Spotify. Check out the video for “Medusa” Here.

The 19-year-old songstress first teased out the track in 2016 with a brief Twitter video, and it ignited a viral reaction spawning 100,000 “likes” overnight. Over an airy minimalistic soundscape, Morgue exorcises a, hypnotic, and heartfelt melody with haunting and powerful lyrics.

In addition, she recently posted a cover of label mate Post Malone’s smash hit “rockstar” ft. 21 Savage. The track is a follow up to a previous cover she posted of “Feeling Whitney” back in January. Check out the “rockstar” cover here!

Tattooed, green haired, and anime-obsessed 19-year-old Phoenix-born and Los Angeles-based gothic pop siren Kailee Morgue casts a sonic spell with her music. A self-described “introvert” and the second oldest of six kids, she found solace in the sounds of fellow sonic sorceresses such as Stevie Nicks and Gwen Stefani as well as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and more. By the age of ten, she picked up her first guitar, began quietly penning music, and eventually started posting tracks on Soundcloud. Between a gig at Jack in the Box, an 18-year-old Kailee found the beat for “Medusa” on YouTube back in 2016 and cooked up the single. As “Medusa” became an underground phenomenon, she inked a deal with Republic Records in the summer of 2017.
