SINGLE REVIEW: Kim Petras – Future Starts Now

Kim Petras is turning the pages on a brand new chapter today as she gears towards the release of her highly anticipated debut album. ‘Future Starts Now’ is the official lead single that hints towards the hard-hitting glittery pop that is to come. Oozing with a pulsating dance beat that is reminiscent of Madonna’s ‘Confessions On A Dancefloor’ era, she also taps the recent Dua Lipa album as a sonical influence. The electric synths are full of this immediate energy that will have you wanting to leave your heart out on the dance floor. With vocal and synth distortion mixed into the Daft Punk styled synth riffs, she doesn’t hold back throughout the full four-and-a-half minute duration. 

More than ever before it is so easy to get caught up with the stress of losing time. Throughout this pandemic we’ve all just been looking towards the future and worried about what it was going to look like, and what we were going to do when we really should have just been learning to live in this moment. That is the sentiment the German born and now Los Angeles based singer-songwriter is embracing in her new single. “Ain’t nobody gonna stop me. Don’t you let the music stop now. You’re more than just anybody. Don’t give up, the future starts now” she sings during the liberating hook. 

‘Future Starts Now’ is a re-introduction to who she is as an artist. And what she wants you to know is that she is a POP STAR!
