Following the release of her dreamy visual for hit single “Elegance,” Kilo Kish returns with the Mothe EP. The 6-song project has zero features and carries a tranquil experimental vibe. Unlike her previous releases, there are no catchy rhythmic raps to bop along to. Instead, Kish sings effortlessly over heavy electronic instrumentals. It seems as though Kilo Kish has fully transitioned and taken flight as a new artist- less busy and anxious than before.
She spoke on her artistic journey via Paper magazine, in which she explained the reasoning behind the title. After all, most people compare their 180 transformations to butterflies. “A butterfly is more of the sugary, happy version of transformation, and I felt like a moth is a somewhat unwanted transformation but it still happens,” she explained before diving deeper into specifics.
As we continue to digest and enjoy her newest work, take some time to peek into the new mind of Kilo Kish. Stream Mothe below.
