A review of the Kim Gordon song “Murdered Out.”

 

Kim Gordon has been putting out music with Sonic Youth and other projects since the early 1980s, however her first solo single was just released.  It has Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint on drums and was produced by Justin Raisen—best known for his work with Charli XCX and Sky Ferreira.  The track is titled “Murdered Out” and is exactly what you’d expect from Gordon: breathy, haunting vocals, scratching grinding guitars and an infectious groove.


The song’s title and theme Gordon moving to LA and noticing more and more murdered out cars on the road—those with matte black paint, a blackened logo, tinted windows and all black wheels.  In an interview about Gordon explained she took the style to be “a statement-making rejection of the shiny brand new look, the idea of a new start, the promise of power, and the freedom on the open road. Like an option on a voting ballot, ‘none of the above.’”  The song then seems an expression of a need to cleanse the soul, the reject conformity and to begin again.  It’s powerful, hypnotic and has a ton of bite.
