Teased by mega-catchy singles ‘Fantasy’ and ‘Dial Tone’, Hybrid Rose (Rose Windeler aka Valentina) unveiled her fifth studio album HyperKunt on Good Friday. The Te Whanganui-a-Tara trans electronic artist reunites with recent collaborator Jeivenchy (she produced the NZ / Filipino songwriter’s ace new album Fatal Attraction) on glammed up piano house banger ‘Paris’, also welcoming on board buds Hazel Rose, Jason Parker, Ryan The God and LOZ. Sounding capable of conquering the world on the stylish and outrageous ‘I Want It All’, Hybrid Rose’s new nine track record feels primed to ignite dance floors — a sassy dose of confidence and outward looking optimism (with a healthy dash of emotiveness) following a relatively dour two years for Aotearoa music. I’m betting any upcoming live shows will be off the chain too, smash play on HyperKunt below..
‘HyperKunt’ is out now on major streaming platforms.
