Los Angeles alt-metal scream queen SIIICKBRAIN will unveil her highly-anticipated, enthralling debut full-length album, “MY MASOCHISTIC MIND,” on December 1st via Lowly Records.
The enigmatic singer teases her legion of followers with the drop of a brand new single titled “Psychopath.”
Commenting on the new track, SIIICKBRAIN states:
“‘Psychopath’ is a song that was written from the perspective of trying to make it in the music industry. It can feel like, in order to be an artist, your brain has to go through hurdles that requires us to rewire certain parts of ourselves that in turn makes us feel that we have lost our minds. The question ‘do you really want it all’ is one everyone has to ask themselves while staying motivated in life, but one that artists particularly have to consider while trying to break in the industry.“
SIIICKBRAIN, the alternative persona of fashion model and musician Caroline Miner Smith, has recruited a massive worldwide cult following on social media, who are drawn to her dark guise and signature, eclectic mashup of alternative, rock, metal, industrial and electronic styles. In the last few years, she’s collaborated with with the likes of Skrillex, Pussy Riot and WILLOW among others, and has racked up millions of streams with singles like “Silence” and “Hellslide.” Most recently, SIIICKBRAIN teamed up with friend and cohort Maggie Lindemann on the track “deprecating.’
SIIICKBRAIN is found at the intersection of fashion, art and music. Provocative in sound and imagery, magnetizing with juxtaposing melody and dissonance and an alluring visionary of pure artistic prowess, SIIICKBRAIN isn’t merely another project, it’s a movement aimed to provoke, excite and stimulate.
“MY MASOCHISTIC MIND” Track List:
1. 14 Needles
