Rising electronic producer Kilder has teamed up with multi-disciplinary artist, DJ and songwriter Alice Longyu Gao on their pithy 21st-century diss track, Crying At CVS.
On the release, Longyu Gao brings her signature lyrical humour, creating an ode to celebrate yourself after the demise of a toxic relationship. The narrative plays out atop Kilder glistening production, built upon euphoric celebratory chords, whilst fusing together influences from differing genres to create one undefinable soundscape for the track to exist within.
Kilder shares of the track: "I wanted to make something that felt a little bit less serious and more on the fun side of things. M.I.A. is one of the artists who I've been revisiting in the last few months, her song Paper Planes is such a good feeling song that sparked the inspiration of the beat for CVS. But it needed the offset of a punk vocalist for it to work, I've always loved Alice and thought she would be perfect. She came back with the wildest vocal I've ever heard in a while and I loved it right from the start." Longyu Gao adds; "Kilder is absolutely brilliant and styled the song so well with his production. On the day I wrote it I was thinking about how men treat me like a play-doll, they think they can feed Alice what Alice needs, but hey its ALG, Alice Longyu Gao, I am not just a new bitch on the block. I cry, I laugh, I joke about my traumas and I plot revenge through songwriting; that’s how I made Crying at CVS with Kilder."
