On October 21, indie alternative-pop singer and songwriter Kailee Morgue released her new single and music video, “Butterflies,” via Thriller Records. This is her first song released through this label, and heralds the release of her new upcoming EP in the spring of 2022.

Describing the song, Kailee shares: “Butterflies is a big “F you” type of track. I hadn’t put music out in so long I wanted to make sure I came back with a BOLD song. It’s really the start of a new era and this character that I’ll be taking on called the “Bad Witch.” The first chapter of her story had to feel vindictive and raw so this track tackles that emotional vulnerability and rage!”

Beginning with “Butterflies,” Kailee’s “Bad Witch” character will be explored in a series of stunning visual vignettes that will form an episodic journey leading to her new EP. The Los Angeles resident has incorporated an interior furniture similar to that of influencer Kelly Eden’s into the set design of the music video, as well as references to pop culture such as Sailor Moon and other influences. Directed by Ricky Himself, the so-called “emerging pop star” features her famously dark and light voice, incorporating both goth and punk elements into her presentation on screen. Kailee has cited Avril Lavigne and Gwen Stefani as some of her biggest influences, which come across in both the make of the song’s composition as well as the singer’s wardrobe.

Her extensive fanbase, which will remember Kailee’s emergence into the songwriting world from YouTube and TikTok, has only grown since her debut in 2018 with original hit track “Medusa,” and will surely appreciate a deeper dive into Kailee’s creative mind come next year.

In the meantime, enjoy Kailee Morgue’s deliciously dark music video of Butterflies on YouTube.
