Multi-faceted pop innovator BAYLI has released her latest single “TELLY BAG,” an ode to BAYLI’s love for Telfar, fashion, her queer identity, and bad bitches of all genders, sizes, and colors.
“It’s always been important to me to shed light on communities that are often underrepresented so I really wanted to make sure the ‘TELLY BAG’ music video was a total celebration of our community and all things gay,” says BAYLI on the song. “All of the models in the video are legendary queer artists and creators who we asked to come dressed as their most authentic selves while accessorizing with gender non-conforming pieces from Telfar fresh off the SS22 runway. From Brendan Jordan, who you might know as the iconic kid who vogued DOWN on a local new channel a few years back, to Kidd Kenn, one of the first publicly gay rappers signed to Def Jam Records, the video encapsulates what feels like to be a bad bitch in 2022”
Australian-born, Los Angeles-based producer Kito released her new EP, Blossom, today via Astralwerks. She also shared visualizers for three of its seven songs: her new single, “Tongue Tied” (ft. Terror Jr), “Locked On You” (ft. BROODS) and “Always Been You.” Additional collaborators include ZHU and Jeremih, VanJess and Channel Tres and Bea Miller.
The songs feel familiar and irresistible—swirling up lyrics about love and loss while pulling from the visceral dance songs of Kito’s past and the emotionally rich futuristic pop she devours now. She teams up with Terror Jr, the pop duo behind such dance hits as “3 Strikes” and “Come First,” on her new single, “Tongue Tied,” which enraptures with its ethereal instrumentation and distorted vocal chops. The infectious “Locked On You” features evocative vocals from acclaimed New Zealand duo BROODS, who also collaborated with Kito on her 2018 EP, Haani. “Always Been You,” the EP’s leadoff track, is a soulful celebration of those who can be truly counted on, even amid life’s storms.
Astralwerks artist Kito announces the November 5 release of her new EP, Blossom, and unveils the leadoff track from the seven-song set, “Skin & Bones” ft. Winona Oak. Kito wrote the song with Sarah Aarons (Zedd, Alessia Cara, Maren Morris). @kito
