MOTHICA has shared a new track from her forthcoming record Kissing Death, “Curiosity Killed The Moth.” The heartbreaking song is preceded by her March release, “Doomed,” which discusses the artist’s life and struggles in 2009.

Speaking about her new track, MOTHICA shares, “I thought of the phrase ‘curiosity killed the cat’ on the way to a session with David Burris and Alexandra Veltri, and we twisted it to be about a moth. Like a moth to a flame. Icarus flying too close to the sun.”

She continues, “I’ve always wanted to write a song about moths, but of course, it being my namesake that felt like a daunting task. I wanted every song to feel like it was from a soundtrack since I knew I was going to do a music video for every song, and so it turned into this dark cinematic feeling that I really love.”

The “Curiosity Killed The Moth” music video jumps ahead in time to MOTHICA in 2016. Over melancholy guitar strums and synth sounds, she ethereally sings through the night as it’s lit up with neon signs. “Me and Icarus are cut from the same cloth/Searching for velvet sensations/Falling for temptation/Curiosity killed the moth,” she sings. Check out the new single and accompanying music video below.

Of her new LP, available August 23 via Heavy Heart Records, MOTHICA notes, “This is for the younger version of me who romanticized death for a decade, and the lasting impact it had on me as I searched for an easier, softer way to exist.” In fact, the artist promises a new song and video will arrive every three weeks. So, basically, you can count on one track a month to brighten your alternative playlists.
