Kat Cunning Shares New Single STAY ON THE LINE
Since releasing her debut singles in 2017, NYC-based musician and actress Kat Cunning has established herself as a force to be reckoned with. Following a sold-out national tour with acclaimed-singer songwriter LP, including debut festival performances at The Great Escape and Firefly Music Festival, Kat continues to make waves on the international scene.Yesterday, she shared new single "Stay On The Line" with OUT Magazine, fusing ethereal synths and an infectious beat. The track was first featured on Phil Taggart's BBC Radio 1 show and is now available on all digital platforms. About the track, Kat comments:
"A part of my mission as an artist is to set an example as an empowered woman who is in ownership of her body, her desire and her knowledge; so naturally, a lot of my music is about sex. "Stay On The Line" sets a particular scene (for which I am awfully nostalgic,) of two consenting individuals sneaking onto family landlines, willing to risk getting caught for the forbidden taste of closeness. It's a mark of our times that only some people remember how it feels to press a landline to their ear, cupping the crackling voice on the other end.
There is something beautiful about the way (my experiences with phone sex) have been filled with poetry, feverishly using words like a tennis match, and metaphor in place of scent, touch, and taste. It's about phone sex, but it's also about the poetic depths of desire and a need to connect in the modern age." - Kat Cunning
