Kailee Morgue has a huge hit in waiting with her Hayley Kiyoko featured, “Headcase.”
2018 was a brilliant year for Morgue, her gothic-pop sound was twisted and worked into some breakthrough hits like “Medusa” and the synth-heavy, “Do You Feel This Way?”
“Headcase” follows a similar style to her previous releases, with a synth-laden production, yet it doesn’t follow the more experimental nature she usually goes in, giving this track a much more mainstream appeal.
The Phoenix-based popstar samples the guitar opening of The Pixies “Where Is My Mind?” before leading into a rousing airy-electronic chorus, something different to the heavy-synths we’re used to.
Morgue’s vocals entwine perfectly with Kiyoko’s, to the point they could be the same person – the light breezy vibe they have gives the song a laidback summer vibe, which we need right now!
Lyrically, the track could be pretty close to home with lyrics like; “I’m a headcase, but you love me, I’m a mistake, I warned you” – Morgue has previously been open about her bipolar disorder.
