Review: "Gin & Toxic" - KPZ

“Gin & Toxic” is a bursting dance-floor jam that untangles the complicated emotions that surround a toxic relationship. No one ever really thinks they’re going to end up in a toxic relationship until they’re in the thick of it, and KPZ demonstrates how to move on from it, focusing on herself and her independence. Through her narrative and lyrics, she paints a clear portrait of how a toxic relationship is for her: feeling like you would never be enough and hiding your emotions. Paige makes sure that others know that she has had enough of the gin & toxic relationship. 

KPZ incorporates a variety of genres to create dark and menacing soundscapes, bouncing effortlessly from catchy and popping to vulnerable and haunting. From the first hit of the drums, the track sets the atmosphere. As it progresses, it snowballs in intensity and drive, with Paige’s voice growing fuller and commanding the soundscape to bend to his will, her charisma oozing out of the melodies as she dazzles the audience. Music is empowering, and KPZ's mixed hodgepodge of sounds, emotions, and lyrics is a beautiful melding of everything that makes him so irrefutably herself, full of confidence and snark. 

Katelyn Paige, also known as KPZ, is a musical artist hailing just outside of Atlanta and now making waves in Nashville. A jack-of-all-trades, she embraces pop, house, hip-hop, R&B, and even country. By drawing inspiration from greats like Alicia Keys, Hilary Duff, and Fergie, she crafts music on par with Kehlani, Halsey, and more. Bringing a bit of her wit to all of her songs, KPZ is quirky and funny, a girl-next-door with an edge. A storyteller at heart, all of KPZ's songs bring her personal experiences to her fans, bringing common ground to her fans. With an energetic spirit and passion for diverse musical expressions, KPZ is sure to leave a mark in the industry.
