K.Flay Inside Voices: An explosion of thoughts springboard off rumbling rock riffs and hip-hop beats



An explosion of thoughts springboard off rumbling rock riffs and hip-hop beats, is how best to describe alt-rapper K.Flay's latest EP, 'Inside Voices'.


It's pedal to the medal from the off, with the Grammy-nominated star getting everything off her chest in a helter-skelter fashion.


K.Flay explains: “So often we keep everything bottled up.

“Inside Voices was a way for me to exorcise some demons and safely express these uncomfortable but very human emotions I was feeling.”


Tom Morello-featuring 'TGIF' is a politically-charged ode to Rage Against The Machine, exerting anger towards Donald Trump.


K.Flay spits: "The world is run by lunatics, so who gives a f***?

Let's light it up, let's make a mess, let's coalesce, let's make a fuss

The world is filled with psychopaths, so I wanna drink

I wanna fight, I wanna rage against the f***ing machine."


We've lost count of the amount of collabs Travis Barker has had in the past year - from Kenny Hoopla and Machine Gun Kelly to Willow Smith and Run The Jewels.


But 'Dating My Dad', which K.Flay hailed "impish in the best way", is a freakish and hilarious flex with drum sounds that aren't instantly recognisable as the Blink-182 sticksman.


All in jest, of course, K.Flay quips: "Mom and dad, we love 'em

"Either f*** 'em or become 'em."


"I'll do it my way/Till the day that I die", K.Flay says on 'TGIF', and that mentality runs through every track.
