We heard you wanted a partygirl anthem, so we found the hottest track of the summer; “So Bad” from up-and-coming Montreal artist Public Appeal. It’s one for our 4 am ravers and for fans of That Kid, Isabella Lovestory, Slayyter, and Shygirl.
Their explosive first release embodies the perfect amount of bitchy, it-girl energy whether you’re getting pumped up for the club or walking home the next morning. Lyrics like, “Fear god when you should fear me,” and, “Everyone wants my name, and I’m like au revoir,” ooze enough ultra self-confidence to give anyone a boost.
Public Appeal, known as Kyle to their friends, has lived in Montreal for four years and has been working their way through the music scene. Pulling inspiration from artists like Uffie and ClubEat, as well as the electroclash and techno genres and producers like SOPHIE, Public Appeal is in your face and exaggerated, with songs that have a whole lot of attitude.
Stay tuned for future releases from Public Appeal, who might just become your new favourite pop star by the end of the summer.
