Review: "Swim with Sharks" - Kitty Rae
In her latest release "Swimming with Sharks", iconically pink-haired Kitty Rae aims to metaphorically empower listeners to face their fears. Using allusions of self-advocacy in comparison with taking a deep-sea dive produces unique messages that are both relatable and encouraging. Cover art portraying the artist jumping into a pool of sharks contrasted against a cotton candy, lightning-filled sky invites listeners to take the plunge with her.
Captivating listeners with deep messages of strength through a unique alt-pop sound is a specialty of rising musician Kitty Rae. While "Swim with Sharks" utilizes a collaboration of deep synths and chilling layered vocals to embody an ominous mood, lyrically the song encourages bravery to show others you are confident in your capabilities. Promoting independence while maintaining an edgy vibe, Kitty Rae's latest single puts a twist on the modern-day confidence anthem.
