Kevin Hackett is telling all on his new album. Released July 23, ‘AWAKE AFTER MIDNIGHT’ is the latest offering from Hackett, which he describes as “a record about falling for someone for the first time, in all its intricacies.”
Sucker represents a notably more mature sound for Katastro while showcasing their unique melting pot stew of rock, hip-hop, funk, blues, pop, and reggae. Produced by Matt Keller (Lydia, Anarbor, Redlands), Sucker embodies the constant loop of life, love, hate and wanting to break the pattern. The 12 songs on the album bring listeners along on a ride, providing a summery soundtrack and something a little more positive to look forward to when everything feels off.
The Miami-based artist’s latest track is an upbeat, soulful love song which is in contrast to her previous darker sounding single, ‘Noise.’
The hyper-pop-trap single touches on his ability to rise from the ashes even after being torn down when facing life’s battles, and feeling a blissful sense of freedom in escaping the dark times.
This song sees KiNG MALA asking for forgiveness for all the things in her life she did when she was learning and growing. Striving to be a good person, she is known for her kindness and loving tendencies, but like many, she often battles with mental illness and the darker parts of her mind.
The new single touches on the empowerment of leaving your comfort zone, carrying huge bass sounds, a bittersweet feeling of melancholic euphoria, amongst a diversity of dynamics and Myles’ haunting tone that drips over the sleek R&B energy intertwined with pop sensibilities.
The title is a call out to the attention-seeking game of social media, but the song itself is about giving yourself all the love you deserve without asking permission.
