“I just want to dance, it don’t have to be so complicated, bad girls love to dance.”
From the vibrant depths of Los Angeles, the captivating KANGA emerges, weaving icy grooves that bridge the gap between Wax Trax industrial and the vanguard of modern darkwave. Her sound is an intoxicating fusion of post-apocalyptic pop and infectious dance rhythms, resonating across the vast spectrum of the global underground music scene. As the anticipated date of October 6th, 2023 draws near, there is an increasing sense of excitement surrounding the release of her latest album, Under Glass, which will be made available under the esteemed record label, Artoffact Records.
Recently, KANGA offered a tantalizing preview of what’s to come with her single, “Bad Girl.” Channeling the spirit of iconic dance-pop anthems, akin to the gems from Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation, this track is more than just its infectious lyrics and hooks. It’s a deep dive into the intricate web of our desires, a call to action for those yearning to break free from societal constraints and dance with wild abandon. It’s a synth-laden dreamscape, a siren call to unleash the rebel within.
Listen to “Bad Girl” below:
KANGA’s evolution resounds with the echo of her latest offerings. A dynamic, genre-bending style showcases the musician’s ever-growing ability to flawlessly blend sensational storytelling in highly-relatable, introspective tracks. A little Kylie Minogue here, a little Skinny Puppy there, her dynamic mix of production, songwriting, vocal melodies, and synth create lush, highly-danceable tunes.
Having already teased our senses with three emblematic singles from Under Glass, she unfurls an artistic metamorphosis. Magnolia is wistful and cinematic, and the album’s title track, ‘Under Glass‘, serenades listeners with an ethereal dreamscape, punctuated with pulsating rhythms. Meanwhile, ‘Rehab‘ – the album’s inaugural single – is a tempestuous kaleidoscope where electro-pop fuses with the haunting cadences of dark wave.
An LA-based producer, musician, and celebrated songwriter, KANGA’s music has been included in the hit game Cyberpunk 2077, the horror film Terrifier II, and celebrated remixes. Embraced by the darkwave, emo, and heavy metal communities alike, KANGA’s singles have been streamed millions of times and she has shared stages with the likes of Gary Numan, The Black Queen, Uniform, Kælan Mikla, and more. KANGA was recently brought in to provide vocals on the new Delerium album, Signs.
Kanga is currently on tour with Thrill Kill Kult and Adult. See tour dates here.
Under Glass is out October 6th. Pre-Order the album here.
