After the previously released “Murdered Out”, “Sketch Artist” and “Air BnB”, the iconic american singer Kim Gordon has just released another taste of her forthcoming debut solo album No Home Record titled “Hungry Baby“. As she continues to share tracks from her new work, the hype is increasing steadily.
The ex-Sonic Youth bassist’s voice style seems not to have changed: the biting notes of her timbre still intensely dominate her songs. The discordant and at the same time melodic sound holds the track together: “I’ll take you in / I’ll put you out / I’ll tell you stories of what you’ve got”, she sings on “Hungry Baby”.
As she recently has revealed in an interview for Dazed and Confused Magazine, the song tries to describe a sexual harassment seen from the point of view of a man: “it’s in the man’s voice. I thought it was obvious, but in the last interview, they had no idea. I made it very over-the-top, almost like an anthem at the end. I wrote a song about it in 1990, too, ‘Swimsuit Issue’. I guess I could update it“.
Justin Raisen has produced the album with the contribution of Shawn Everett and filmmaker Jake Meginsky, while Loretta Fahrenholz directed the short music videos for “Paprika Pony” and “Don’t Play It” from the album.
No Home Record will be out this Friday, October 11, via Matador.
