Kill J returns with her biggest pop moment to date on new single "Gravity"

Following a series of stunning singles and the Quasi EP, things have been a little quiet in the Kill J camp. But today the Dane is back with a new single.

"Gravity" continues with Julie Aagaard's attempts to confound expectations following a series of darker tracks delving into the sensual side of R&B.

While still sensual af (you really have to see Kill J live) this track is at the pop end of the scale, perhaps close to "Phoenix" in style. Beats are constructed out of finger-clicks and handclaps, synth blips fall like raindrops as Aagard coos lines like "the girl in the mirror seems to have it all together / she's all bat lash and sex and muscle", which suggest a battle between strength and vulnerability, going out and being alone.

The chorus swells in classic ballad fashion, once again confirming that Kill J has a voice that's often unmatched in modern pop music.

"'Gravity' is the first single of my upcoming first full album," says Aagard. "It is an album that revolves around the world of particle physics. 'Gravity' is one of the lighter songs but it’s actually a song about being in a crisis. A crisis of understanding and a crisis of faith. I am not religious person, but I still feel the need to believe in something. The song is about finding comfort in the laws of nature - realizing one simple thing, that you can hold on to - one thing, that you know for sure is true: When I let go, I fall down. It's about surrendering to what we know. Surrendering to the pull of gravity with all the connotations of religious surrender."

"Gravity" is out tomorrow on digital platforms.
