KUČKA Shares First Solo Song of 2022, “Messed Up”

Just weeks after the bombshell release of her collaboration with Flume and QUIET BISON, "ESCAPE," KUČKA is back for more—this time with her first solo release of the year.

And for KUČKA, this one has been years in the making. In fact, it wasn't until several months ago that "Messed Up" was dusted off and completed after vexing the artist for years.

The final "Messed Up" tantalizingly pairs an eerie, flute-like melody with KUČKA's signature cosmic vocal tone, swirling amongst the colorful chaos of its synths. Masterfully it brings together U.K. garage and hyperpop, building on dreamy sound design and energized breaks to maximize the song's disorienting, mesmeric effect.

"I'm under a spell that's hard to break, and your touch is like electricity," KUČKA sings as the arrangement fires up for its drop.
