A few months ago KUČKA dropped ‘Drowning’, her debut track on LuckyMe and first solo release in three years, instantly captivating us with her silky, candied vocals gliding amongst effervescent synths and dusky, pared-down beats. Today she shares her next single ‘Real’, drawing us further into her shimmering, emotive soundscapes. To celebrate the release, KUČKA talks us through five tracks that have influenced her.
The creative moniker of LA-based Australian-Liverpudlian musician and producer Laura Jane Lowther, KUČKA has worked with the likes of SOPHIE, Vince Staples, A$AP Rocky and Flume. The latter is also a collaborator on her solo work, with Flume’s sound tangible in the production. Her latest single sees Lowther’s dreamy, pensive and cathartic songwriting further come to the fore, matched by twinkling, melancholic melodies and swirling, brooding percussion.
With exciting things on the horizon, including an album due next year, we can’t wait to hear what’s next. In the meantime, enjoy ‘Real’ and get to know KUČKA In Five…
Beck – Get Real Paid
Love how this track chugs along with such a relaxed feel. It’s messy but contained exactly where it needs to be.
