Kinlaw Shares Stunning Single “Permissions”

New York-based composer, choreographer and artist Kinlaw recently announced her stunning, avant dark-pop debut album The Tipping Scale, and released its dynamic and high-energy lead single “Blindspot.” Now she shares another exciting look at the forthcoming record with “Permissions.” Kinlaw explains, “I only allowed myself to write this track while I was moving forward physically. I turned it into a bit of a game; there are many mental games woven through all of the tracks, really, but this one has the most. I wrote ‘Permissions’ on a bus, in the back of a car, on a plane, and every lyric and melody was written while walking or running. I was in an extraordinary depression at that time and wanted to honor it, yet still, write something for a future that would hopefully feel different.” Vocally, the song has a vast range, which Kinlaw likens to a spiking EEG brain scan. “It can sometimes be challenging for me to sing it. I like that about this one. The feelings are hard, the words are hard, it’s hard to sing, yet here we are, dancing together.”
