“I’ll remove that bit / duplicate that shit / Imma / cut & paste it
Imma steal that kiss / I’m a wolf like this / I don’t fake it”
It’s sassy and seductive: ‘Cut & Paste It’ is the brand new track from Melbourne-via-Fremantle singer Kathryn Rollins. Available today.
With an ambitious leap forward, Rollins’ latest offering comes via a MIDI keyboard, and inspiration in the form of Grimes, Ta-ku, Zebra Katz and Le1f, even Beyoncé.
For fans who caught the acoustic, finger-picking feel of Rollins’ acclaimed debut EP, Reckless (recorded with Eskimo Joe’s Kav Temperley and released in April 2013), ‘Cut & Paste It’ will surprise: this is the sound of an artist making her mark. “I’d written a lot of ‘angsty guitar songs’ in my time,” says Rollins of her confident, beat heavy new single, laid down with producer Steven Schram (San Cisco, Little Birdy, The Cat Empire) and mastered by Emily Lazar (HAIM, Vampire Weekend) and is the first taste of her upcoming second EP. “I wanted to write something fun and upbeat.”
As far as new directions go, ‘Cut & Paste It’ takes no prisoners, all unapologetic bouncy and vital beats. “I wanted to be empowered, to present something really confident and celebrate growth and excitement.” With street smart beats and infectious energy, Kathryn Rollins’ latest offering has the type of potency you just can’t ignore.
