MOTHICA – New Video/Single “Red” Out Now; Album “Kissing Death” To Be Released 23rd August 2024 Via Heavy Heart/Rise Records

MOTHICA has released another captivating single, “Red” taken from the visual album, “KISSING DEATH”, released through her own imprint Heavy Heart Records partnering with Rise Records is to be released 23rd August 2024.

“After releasing ‘Nocturnal’, which had more of a heavier influence, I knew I wanted to include a rock song. In the narrative of the album, I wanted younger me to go to a rock show of future me, which is obviously impossible in reality, but it  represents all the music I grew up listening to and what I’d later be inspired by. My buddy Nick Sadler and I wrote this together to be this rock-inspired anthem that teenage me would’ve loved, despite the lyrics being so self-destructive” says MOTHICA.

Death is an uncomfortable topic that most people avoid thinking about, but MOTHICA decides to dance with it on the forthcoming album. Vulnerably, she laments her personal battles with depression, addiction, and suicidal ideation, processing her pain with lush soundscapes underpinned by funereal keys, heartthumping hard rock guitars, and disarmingly catchy moments of pop catharsis.

After amassing hundreds of millions of streams and earning acclaim from the likes of BillboardMTVTeen VogueBuzzfeedAlt Press, and more, she dives deeper into her powerful story with her third album, “KISSING DEATH”.

“KISSING DEATH” is a visual album that tells an immersive story across 12 tracks and their accompanying music videos which weave into each other. “I decided to make Death a love interest in a dark rom-com-style tale” she notes. “Throughout the visuals, I’m seen in a therapist’s office explaining this complicated relationship as if describing a scorned lover. The music videos will be like ‘flashbacks’ of what I’m telling my therapist. On the first single “DOOMED” we go back in time to an angsty teenage version of me. This is my first brush with the Grim Reaper and I doodle pictures of him in my diary surrounded by hearts. Flash forward, I’m shown performing at a dive bar, clubbing, engulfed in self-destruction. He stalks me, and eventually even proposes marriage, and I leave him at the altar and run away. It ends with me and Death in couples therapy. I wanted the music to feel cinematic, like the soundtrack of a movie”.
