There’s no doubt that Kailee Morgue is a swiftly ascending pop star. Even her debut single Medusa was an immediate smash hit, having drummed up endless buzz long before the pop songstress revealed the whole track. The Arizona born artist’s strong following continued to grow with the release of Discovery and Unfortunate Soul, which culminated in the arrival of her debut EP, also named Medusa. Morgue also appeared on one of Bearson’s huge collaborations as of late, and now she’s back with new single F**k U, a slow burning pop lullaby whose contemplative guitar strums takes her in an alt direction. Though gently melancholic, F**k U hides a cool bite and some soft mettle. Morgue will be making her headline debut in new York at Baby’s All Right on May 17th.

Norwegian producer Bearson teams up with the fast raising starlet Kailee Morgue for a comatosing spaced-out song ‘Go To Sleep’. Bearson’s production on this song soothes you like a baby rocking to sleep in a bundle of warm blankets. It’s so entrancing when matched with Kailee’s vocal that it becomes a sweet lullaby. 

Kailee will be performing for the first time in the city that never sleeps on May 17th.

Earlier this year, Los Angeles based fast-rising starlet Kailee Morgue released her debut EP Medusa to much fanfare and love. Her recent lyric video for EP track Ghost Of Mine affords us the perfect chance to delve into the darkly cinematic pop song, propelled by her silvery and pure voice. Its soft prowling beats and spacious atmosphere do seem ghostly and haunted, but its plucky strings and a feisty undertone add a whimsicality and much fire to the track. Ghost Of Mine falls somewhere between Billie Eilish and Zella Day, but enveloped in a shadowy aura. And it’s absolutely enthralling. Kailee Morgue’s debut EP Medusa is available, here.

19 year old Arizona born, Los Angeles based starlet Kailee Morgue has been named by many as an artist on the rise after releasing songs like Discovery and Medusa in the past. Her long awaited debut EP, also named Medusa, only affirms this sentiment with its four pop songs. The release is accompanied by a new lyric video for new song Unfortunate Soul, a sweetly lilting, breezy traipsing pop aria replete with the chanteuses’ delicate voice. The honeyed song tiptoes between clean guitars and glitchy beats. As 2018 progresses, we’re sure to hear much more about Kailee from esteemed tastemakers across the globe. She’s described as a tattooed, green haired, and anime obsessed gothic pop siren, and she certainly knows how to cast a sonic spell. Check out her debut EP Medusa on Soundcloud, here, and support via other platforms, here.

Phoenix star in the making Kailee Morgue was already a buzzing name even before she released her first single, Medusa, last month. The 19 year old singer songwriter has a devout following online, and she’d teased the gem long ahead of its arrival. We’ve been looking forward to her second single since, and her momentum shows no sign of slowing down with the release of Discovery, a bittersweet electronic pop song with a dulcet melody and a brittle yet resilient tone, propelled by her svelte supple voice and the song’s dynamic ebb and flow. Somber keys are paired with an edgy yet fluid electronic soundscape to give us a dramatically affecting ballad. Medusa and Discovery are solid proof that this arresting chanteuse is going to be an emphatic force in 2018. Stream/purchase Discovery, here.

19 year old buzz maker and enchanting chanteuse Kailee Morgue made a big splash in the new pop music scene when she released her long teased debut single Medusa, an airy saccharine, mellifluous trickling gem that immediately put her front and center on our heat seeking radar. Toronto producer Chet Porter, who I was fortunate enough to witness lay down an amazing set at one of Odesza’s sold out shows in Berkeley just a couple weeks prior, has given Medusa a transcendental re-fix that brings out Kailee Morgue’s sweetly alluring, chiffon sheer voice even more. Chet Porter gives the song a robust jolt with his rolling synths and whirring beats, but he also dusts the song with sparkling beauty. It’s an indie dance approach that will certainly spruce up your day and give you a moment of much needed carefree joy. Chet Porter will be bringing his music to the Independent in San Francisco when headlines on February 16th.

We’ve never heard of Kailee Morgue until this morning, but this 19 year old pop songstress has already drummed up a whole lot of buzz by teasing our her debut single in 2016 with a brief Twitter video. The clip ignited a viral reaction spawning 100,000 “likes” overnight! We normally think of a medusa as something rather horrifying. In classic Greek mythology, Medusa will turn you into stone. Kailee Morgue’s Medusa does the opposite with its airy minimalistic soundscape and Morgue’s enchanting voice. If anything, it breathes new life into us with its melodious trickling beauty and darkly haunting lyrics. 

Of the song, this obvious newcomer to watch says: “I wanted to create a story and paint a picture with words. I heard the first line in a movie [“There’s blood in the water”] and just had to incorporate it into that beat. It shows vulnerability and creates a different take on Medusa. In mythology, Medusa was cursed with snakes for hair and a hideous face over something that wasn’t her fault. It’s actually a tragic story, but people perceive her as a monster. So, she takes on the leadership role of the ‘broken’ in the song.”  Medusa is out now on Republic Records.
