For artist, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist KILLBOY, sappy, all consuming infatuation doesn't necessarily seem like this fierce female's MO. Known on social media for stating the truth as it is and giving zero f's about your opinion of her for it, KILLBOY's undeniable talent and generally blunt communication style has garnered her a loyal fan base nearing the hundred thousands. But as much as KILLBOY is otherworldly, she too can be smitten by the earthly pleasures of love and lust, hence the subject of most recent single "U + ME."
A slow-burning bop, blending production elements of punk and hip-hop with mellifluous pop melodies, KILLBOY flexes her musical prowess. A rarity in music, KILLBOY writes, sings, produces, and engineers her music, allowing for a unique listening experience, free of convolution and dripping with her striking essence.
The story of the song outlines an internal dialogue, sharing the classic tale of that b**** you just can't eradicate from your psyche. Built over an electric guitar line, KILLBOY plays with varying rhythms and complex ascending and descending melodies. The single is accompanied by a visual companion set at an intergalactic house party, directed by STRIPMALL and produced by Dreambear (Steve Aoki, Trippie Redd, Lil Skies). The visual, starring Jaden Fenix Forte, takes us on a psychedelic tour of the couple's intoxicating romance.
