“There’s blood in the water,” Kailee Morgue angelically coos on her debut single, “Medusa.” This ominous statement reveals quite a bit about the tattooed, anime obsessed 19-year-old Phoenix-born and Los Angeles-based gothic pop siren. Her delicate delivery entwines with blood-soaked lyricism and conjures up a new kind of sonic magic, casting a spell between seemingly disparate and dynamic extremes. “There’s a dark contrast,” she affirms. “My first name is Kailee, and it sounds bubbly. I chose Morgue, because it gives you the opposite sentiment. That feeling really comes across in the music.”

A self-described “introvert”, Kailee found solace in the sounds of fellow sonic sorceresses such as Stevie Knicks and Gwen Stefani as well as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and more. By the age of ten, she picked up her first guitar, began quietly penning music, and eventually started posting tracks on Soundcloud. Between a gig at Jack in the Box, an 18-year-old Kailee found the beat for “Medusa” on YouTube back in 2016. She recorded her vocals, uploaded it to Instagram at two in the morning, and amassed over 100,000 likes overnight. As “Medusa” became an underground phenomenon, she inked a deal with Republic Records in the summer of 2017. Upon signing, she immediately hit the studio with producer CJ Baran (Melanie Martinez, Panic! At the Disco, Carly Rae Jepsen) to write and record what would become her 2018 major label debut.

Her world just starts to open up now. Kailee Morgue’s spell has been cast and pop might never be the same. Now, “there’s blood in the water” forever.
