Kitty has begun to make good on her commitment to her new album “Flower Violence”; earlier today she released the single “Second Life” whilst explaining her disdain for labels:
“frick a label uoeno
here’s a song from my new album i’m making, it’s called flowerviolence and it’s gonna be weird but whatever i really like it and i’m tired of waiting for other people to decide what happens to my music because it’s boring and i like this so here u go.” – Kitty via SoundCloud
What we have with “Second Life” is something wildly different from what we’d expect from the girl who bit Tupac Shakur’s moniker, deeming herself “kittaveli”. Full of synths rapidly ascending to a ridiculous drum loop only to break down just long enough to leave you thinking, “Wait, what am I listening to again?”, Second Life is not a tale of the online computer game, but almost the soundtrack to the topic of Kitty’s idea of a lucid dream. The subject of the track being the cause of said dream.
“You made me this quiet thing I’m not used to being
Inside of this second life, I live in lucid dreams
I’m excited, I’m losing sleep
You’ve got me lost in my lucid dreams.”
Kitty quietly spits her flow over the synthpop loop produced by Ary (of Anamanaguchi) and does it with ease. It seems as though Flower Violence is going to be extremely experimental for the rapper, an album full of growth and quite literally not caring about what anyone thinks. Needless to say, we’re excited to hear more from Flower Violence.
In an email full of grammatical errors and a lack of capital letters to Kitty’s mailing list she said the following about “Second Life” and her new album:
