MOTHICA has shared another new single and video from her upcoming album Kissing Death.

Following last month’s first single Doomed, today the artist unveils a song attached to her name, Curiosity Killed The Moth – and as such, she says that it felt like an especially “daunting” one to write.

“I thought of the phrase ‘curiosity killed the cat’ on the way to a session with David Burris and Alexandra Veltri, and we twisted it to be about a moth,” MOTHICA explains. “Like a moth to a flame. Icarus flying too close to the sun.

“I’ve always wanted to write a song about moths, but of course, it being my namesake that felt like a daunting task. I wanted every song to feel like it was from a soundtrack since I knew I was going to do a music video for every song, and so it turned into this dark cinematic feeling that I really love.”

Kissing Death is due out on August 23 via Heavy Heart/Rise Records.
