The Sydney-based alt-pop provocateur's glittery, clever single takes the conventions of early-2010s pop and reverse engineers them seamlessly.
Alt-pop artist Theia, based out of Sydney, Australia, has released her new single "Kitty Kat" today, the first single off of her upcoming mixtape 99% ANGEL. "A sonic love letter to rebels everywhere," you can have a listen below.
From Christchurch, New Zealand, the avant-pop artist has been making waves since she first emerged in 2015 with the R&B-infused "Silver Second," produced by Alex Hope (Troye Sivan, Broods).
Theia describes the single as a "...pussy power anthem," and details her experiences of being a young femxle-identifying person in the music industry. "Karma comes around / 'cause this kitty bites back," she slings over a shiny hook taken straight out of early-2010s radio pop, but reverse-engineers it, muffling it under a layer of bass and fluorescent bounce, like contemporaries Slayyyter and Charli XCX.
Her mixtape, 99% ANGEL, is forthcoming.
