KANGA: industrial-pop dynamo reveals music video for new single "Home"!

  Van Muylem    12 maart 2021

KANGA has teamed with Flood Magazine to premiere the music video for her latest single, "Home." With sumptuous lighting, a horde of mysterious masked figures, and KANGA herself playing two roles, the video is a feast for the eyes. "Home" appears on KANGA's forthcoming sophomore album, You and I Will Never Die, out March 26th on Artoffact Records. Written and performed entirely by KANGA, it was mixed by Justin McGrath (Nine Inch Nails) and Brett Romnes (Brand New), and mastered by Nick Townsend (Dr. Dre, Garbage).

KANGA offers this statement about the video: "Many of us turn to self medication to cope with our feelings of hopelessness and loss, and when faced with the pressures of social situations we feel an obligation to paint on a different face in order to get through the night. The video for 'Home' centers around this duality between the anxiety and the actor in the room: the split that happens when one’s internal monologue gains independence and creates a whole new character that is maybe braver than one’s inner self, but also lacks the boundaries and foresight our daylight selves hold onto. The video weaves the two selves in and out throughout the night. The masked figures that appear are projections of faceless anxieties that the uninhibited self is able to observe and immerse itself with, which may be exciting in the moment but will inevitably lead to a painful morning."

Based in Los Angeles, KANGA's dark, danceable pop is marked by her commanding, ethereal vocals, and an undercurrent of industrial elements. Post-Punk.com describes her as "a unique fixture on the scene, fusing post-apocalyptic pop sensibilities with body-shaking rhythms and sinuous melodies. A little Kylie Minogue here, a little Skinny Puppy there, her dynamic mix of production, songwriting, vocal melodies, and synth create a lush, highly-danceable tapestry."

You and I Will Never Die follows KANGA's much acclaimed, self-titled, debut album, released in 2016. KANGA has toured the US, UK and Europe with Gary Numan, The Black Queen (Greg Puciato of The Dillinger Escape Plan) and more. In addition to making her own music, KANGA is a producer and remixer whose credits include Dalmation (Kristina Esfandiari of King Woman), 3TEETH, clipping., Danny Blu and more. She also composes for film, notably assisting horror composer Joseph Bishara on scores for the Insidious and Conjuring films.
