Following her highly-anticipated and fiercely political recent release “Strange Fruits of The Sea” Copenhagen art-pop muse Kill J slinks back with a powerful new single “Dead Weight Soldier”. The second taste from her forthcoming new album ‘Superposition’.
It’s again Kill J’s coy, vicious and oh-so barbed vocals that power the track over a stripped-back, tribal instrumental that will conjure relevant comparisons to the likes of Erykah Badu as much as it will to the bright pop experimentation of Charli XCX and Banks. It’s a dark and thrilling return from one of Scandinavia’s most elusive and innovative artists.
Speaking on the track, Kill J explains: ”It’s based on a revenge fantasy. A retaliation against an incompetent man that I have encountered quite a few times in different forms throughout my life: full of hot air, an egomaniac driven by sex and power. A person that has no real talent but is very good at taking credit for other people’s achievements.”
A timely wake-up call to power, the second instalment of her new body of work ‘Superposition’ evolves around the world of particle physics and scientific discoveries. This is, as Kill J explains: “Because in the end, only science will save us.”
The again- nascent and imperious Kill J again shows why she’s such a defining artist in her own right, both lyrically and visually, with the kind of thrilling video that will continue the conversation around an artist clearly in her merciless prime.
