SINGLE REVIEW: Kailee Morgue feat. Hayley Kiyoko – Headcase

I feel like I’ve been missing out on something because I’m going to be honest, I had no idea who Kailee Morgue was. But with the release of her new single ‘Headcase’ I’m definitely on board and listening to this exciting emerging popstar. Delivering angst, emotion and pure reflection she isn’t your normal popstar. She has a bit of a goth heart and she wears that proudly within her dark and moody aesthetic which is so captivating to listen to. Reflecting on the struggle of having an anxiety episode whilst she’s in a relationship she juggles wanting to be left alone but also having the comfort of her partner. “Hold my hand don’t touch. Hold me but don’t touch” she hilariously (and very relatable) orders. But she candidly apologises for her imperfections during the chorus in this very honest confession. “I’m a headcase but you love me. I’m a mistake, I warned you. I’m a headcase, fucking crazy. I’m a heartbreak, I warned you”. It has a very empowering feel to it where she owns her emotions and her anxiety issues. And whilst the song may fall into the same ideology as Bebe Rexha’s ‘I’m A Mess’, this song is a lot grittier. Teaming up with fellow rising star Hayley Kiyoko, she offers a smoother vocal delivery that also offers a different vulnerability to the lyrics. This is a catchy and bold track that will have people turning it up and relating to the pure honesty and you unapologetically won’t be able to get it out of your head.
