KUČKA’s “Divinity” Is Like Wading Through Viscous Fluid

“Divinity” finds the Australian artist switching her tone up, from vivid technicolor to syrupy languor.

While earlier tracks by Australian artost Laura Jane Lowther's electronic pop project KUČKA gleamed in vivid technicolor, her newer material is moving in a slightly darker direction. Via email, Lowther told The FADER that the track we're premiering today, "Divinity," is a good indicator of her current sonic world: "'Divinity' gives an idea of the direction I'm heading with the upcoming EP," she explained. "It's a lot darker than 'Unconditional', and has more layers to the production." We agree with Lowther that it sounds "like you are trying to wade through a viscous fluid"—indeed, the languid, syrupy track seems to pay a little homage to DJ Screw at the end by slowing things up dramatically, setting things to wind up on its own sedated terms. Check it out below.
