ATHALIA, a vocalist from Melbourne busts out her best DOOM mask and kills it on her debut EP due out MAY 14th. THOUGHTCRIME succeeds because her sprawling, sensual vocals breathe on the back of your neck. She smokes out, “Pain gets you high / a place before time / you can feel weightless / this Guinness so tasteless,” and goosebumps pop up.
The release features production from Insightful, 3LLL and fellow Australian Ta-ku. To say I’m pumped for this drop would be a supreme understatement. If “Betterthings” and “Blackrainbows” are to set the tone for what the rest of this album is going to sound like—it’s looking good. Just saying—DOOM mask, sexy vocals, ear for dope beats = my future wifey. I love you ATHALIA! Marry me!
