An alternative artist and producer with hip-hop influences, K.Flay is the first signing to Imagine Dragons’ frontman Dan Reynolds imprint Night Street/Interscope Records.
The new EP — Crush Me —is available now via digital download and streaming via all participating digital retailers.
The four-track Crush Me EP showcases K.Flay’s fearlessly honest songwriting and includes her single “Blood In The Cut.” “The song is about the desire to inundate yourself with pain or angst or noise or joy, or really any experience, in order to have ownership of the feeling,” says K.Flay. “Though it emerged from a dark place, the song quickly morphed into a celebratory thing, which was surprising and cool for me. It kind of felt like I was enacting the song as I wrote it.”
K.Flay, born Kristine Flaherty, has released four mix tapes and three EPs, followed by her 2014 debut album Life As A Dog. “Blood In The Cut” is her first single since releasing “FML” in March. “FML” received positive notices from FADER, Nylon, Complex, and Stereogum, among others.
