Kailee Morgue Debuts New Single “Siren”

Critically acclaimed gothic pop songstress Kailee Morgue shares her new single “Siren” today. Get it HERE via Republic Records. 

Of the song, Morgue says, “‘Siren’ is a song where I get to play the villain (the siren), luring people in with my voice. The Greek mythology references pick up where my first single ‘Medusa’ left off, but this one has a much more sinister tone. The balance between lofty vocals and the sexy, unsettling instrumental mirrors the temptation to do something forbidden or ill-advised.”

Following a pair of sold out headlining shows in New York and Los Angeles earlier this summer and her festival debut at Outside Lands, Morgue will support Poppy on the anxiously awaited “Am I A Girl?” Tour this fall. The tour kicks off on October 25th at Wonder Ballroom in Portland, OR and continues in major markets across North America including Los Angeles (The Wiltern on October 31st), New York (Irving Plaza on November 20th) and Washington D.C. (9:30 Club on November 24th). Check out the full list of dates below. Tickets are on-sale now.

“Siren” arrives hot on the heels of Morgue’s viral hits, “Do You Feel This Way” (feat. Whethan), “F**k U” and her 2017 breakout track, “Medusa,” which catapulted her into an overnight success after she posted a live performance of the song on Twitter. “Medusa” became the title track from her debut EP, which was released last fall and also features “Discovery.”

Tattooed, multi-color haired and anime-obsessed 20-year-old Phoenix-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 bands like 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 in 2016, an 18-year-old Morgue found the beat for her breakout track, “Medusa,” on YouTube and cooked up the single. She first teased the track with a brief Twitter video, and it ignited a viral reaction garnering 100,000 “likes” overnight. Over an airy, minimalistic soundscape, Morgue creates a hypnotic and heartfelt melody with haunting and powerful lyrics. “Medusa” peaked at #1 on Hype Machine, was hailed as “Best Track of the Week” by The New York Times, MTV, The Line of Best Fit and Coup de Main and its video premiered on The FADER. As “Medusa” became an underground phenomenon, Morgue inked a deal with Republic Records in the summer of 2017. Further music is set for release this fall.
