MOTHICA has unveiled a brand-new single and video, Red.

The track is taken from upcoming album Kissing Death, and embraces some inspiration from the rock world following her 2022 album…

“After releasing Nocturnal, which had more of a heavier influence, I knew I wanted to include a rock song,” MOTHICA explains. “In the narrative of the album, I wanted younger me to go to a rock show of future me, which is obviously impossible in reality, but it represents all the music I grew up listening to and what I’d later be inspired by.

“My buddy Nick Sadler and I wrote this together to be this rock-inspired anthem that teenage me would’ve loved, despite the lyrics being so self-destructive.”

Kissing Death is due out on August 23 via Heavy Heart / Rise Records.
