Katie Dey is the Melbourne, Australia-based singer-songwriter behind 2020's mydata, an utterly individual creation of digitally-serrated bedroom electro-pop. The project was remixed into mydata with new versions of the songs from 100 gecs' Laura Les, Ada Rook and Devi McCallion of Black Dresses, Danny L Harle, default genders, and more, and the follow-up proper has been announced today: forever music out next Friday, January 28.
Two songs are out today, "real love" and "unfurl." They're Bandcamp exclusives for the moment; as Stereogum points out, Dey will not be releasing forever music or its songs on streaming services for the foreseeable future. However, you can watch a music video for "real love" below, and watch Dey sing vivid descriptions of a toxic relationship as she washes the dishes. It's a heartbreaking song, but anthemic in a way only Dey can do. Watch below, followed by a Bandcamp stream of the new songs.
