Neverkid releases electro pop ‘When It Comes To You’
‘When It Comes To You’ is Neverkid’s debut single that is an indie-pop track featuring a catchy chorus cutting through 80s-retro synths and an edgy bass loop. The track’s dynamic and powerful vibe adds to Neverkid’s moody, alto vocals and alternative lyrics. “Normally I write songs when I’m in a sad or reflective mood, but this song came from a place of intensity and anger and I wanted the music video to exhibit that. Being my first release, I was also pretty keen to make sure it totally reflected me as an artist and a person – so I’m in shorts and a t-shirt and not wearing much make-up. It’s just me, in a trance, putting on a show.”
Never kid celebrated her single launch at Black Bear Lodge on 20 November 2019 and is set to play shows at The Milk Factory and the zoo in December 2019 and January 2020 respectively. The track’s music video, partially filmed in her garage in East Brisbane and partially at her old university, has so far featured on Scenestr and AMNplify, with the single receiving airplay on SYN radio in Victoria on 23 November 2019.
