Cocktail Music: Kim Petras

Cocktail Music: Kim Petras

Somewhere between 90’s American pop and 80’s European disco comes Kim Petras.  Nodding to influences as diverse as Britney Spears, Baltimora, and the “Brat Pack,” the “side bun” sporting German-born and Los Angeles-based songstress powers up a new pop paradigm, sharing intimate lovelorn storylines over explosive production.

“Pop was always my biggest obsession,” she affirms. “I spend so much time looking for new music online. As a kid, music videos were my escape from the little town I was living in, because nothing happened there. I want to provide that kind of escapism. It’s unapologetically pop.”

Kim’s 2017 debut single “I Don’t Want It At All” unlocks her world. The track has quickly amassed more than 3 million Spotify streams and went to #1 on the Spotify Global Viral 50 Chart just four days after release. Buoyed by shimmering synths and a club-ready beat, the song sees her spout sassy lines like, “I want all my clothes designer; I want someone else to buy ‘em” and “Just close your eyes and swipe it, sweetie” over production blessed by Aaron Joseph, Cirkut, and Luke with co-writing from Lil Aaron.
