Pre-release: Kool Kat - Hermetic Beauty

Written by 
Copenhagen-based singer, producer Kool Kat is clear in her direction to deliver silky, sexy soul with her debut single - Hermetic Beauty.

Sophisticated yet very dramatic, Hermetic Beauty is inspired by the fourth-wave feminism. The Fourth-wave feminism refers to a resurgence of interest in feminism that began around 2012 and is associated with the use of social media.

And Kool Kat aims to keep it real.
All her recordings are live to keep the authenticity.

The singles cool, dark chords, reminiscent of classic Portishead, conjures images of smoky bars and darkly-lit nightclubs. Like Sweden's Snoh Aalegra there's a dark, jazzy soul world their vocals evoke and your jacket is gently removed as they welcome you in.

We're going to order our drinks at the bar while we wait expectantly to hear more from Kool Kat!

Hermetic Beauty officially drops on Feb 16th.

    Music is the product of more than just the notes and the words that fashion its outer shell. It also carries the artistic DNA of its creator, it speaks of their life journey, and it also soaks up something of the place that it is made in. It is probably the most natural thing in the world to write smooth and vibrant music if you look out of the window and see the azure blue of the Pacific Ocean or the sun-kissed beaches of the Mediterranean.

    Snoh Aalegra, however, is proof, if proof were needed, that the cooler Scandinavian climes and the rain-soaked London streets can also influence music in a positive way.
