Australian-born, Los Angeles-based producer Kito returns with “Sad Girl Music” feat. BANKS.

The song finds BANKS contemplating the slip-up that’s turned her into a “bad girl listening / to sad girl music” and Kito redefining what “sad girl music” sounds like.

The track follows Kito’s late 2021 EP Blossom and marks her first collaboration with BANKS since she co-produced “Gimme,” the lead single from the renowned singer-songwriter’s 2019 album, III. Kito and BANKS wrote “Sad Girl Music” with MNEK, M-Phazes, and Rory Noble.

Kito says, “’Sad Girl Music’ is our bad girl anthem; I’ve had it on repeat ever since BANKS got on it and it’s definitely one of my favorite releases to date.”

BANKS adds, “After working together on ‘Gimme,’ Kito and I always talked about making more music together. When this song came together, it felt right. Doing a feature is fun for me because it gets me outside my box a little bit and this is a fresh, bouncy tune.”

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”

Kito

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.
