What I’ve always perceived of Art – pop songstress KILL J is that she is one of the few artists who truly pushes the boundaries and places pop music to another level, often with jarring and industrious bass line and contrastingly light tones.
Her latest album, ‘Superposition’ predominantly continues with the combo, but more stripped back, making those airy soundscapes barely audible, allowing (at times) the boisterous drive and quirky rhythmic tones to shine through.
Singles, ‘Second Chance’ and ‘Stutter’ breaks the album’s main theme with a full-bodied production, thanks to the industrious foundation and electronic backdrop. Often feathery light, KILL J‘s lets go of her secret weapon and provides those breathtaking moments through a touching ballad, ‘Moon Sick’ and piano-led, ‘This Is It Rowdy’, where her octave vocal range really brings both arrangements to life.
Although it’s more minimal than what I expected, ‘Superposition’ does provide interesting moments (for example, the rhythmic tones that resembles a raindrop, through ‘Cloud Chamber’). Furthermore, the album perfectly showcases her killer vocals…something I’ve never noticed before in her previous releases.
