Robinson brings moody vibes for her most radio-friendly single yet with the euphoric, “Karma.”
After a string of captivating singles from the atmospheric, “Don’t Trust Myself,” to the rousing, “Nothing to Regret,” Robinson is kick-starting her 2019 with a pop-tastic bang.
Usually, when an artist decides to turn their attention in a more pop-inspired direction, fans accuse them of selling out – just look at Bring Me The Horizon and their brilliant new album, people aren’t too happy. But Robinson has never really been pigeonholed to one specific sound, she glides gracefully between spine-tingling synth ballads to indie-pop inspired tracks, and even on “Karma,” she keeps the core sound of what made many fall in love with her in the first place.
“Karma” opens with the singers soft and familiar vocals over a subdued pulsing beat before a tribal-like clapping carries you the explosive, hand wailing chorus.
There’s a freeing sense to the track, a confident woman firing shots at an ex who really thinks they can play with her emotions.
You hit my phone like, “Hey, how you doin’?”/You really think that I was that stupid?/Karma’s a bitch, and baby she’s ruthless
After touring with Hayley Kiyoko across Europe last year, the New Zeland born singer-songwriter is kicking her career up a notch – I can’t wait to see what comes next!
