Music & Other Drugs wants to introduce you to an artist who is on the rise. She goes by the name of Bitter’s Kiss. A New Jersey Native, Bitter’s Kiss is an indie pop singer. As a singer and songwriter, Chloe Baker, Bitter’s Kiss, songs sound like pages right out of her diary. Baker makes sure that the listener feels the music through the lyrics. The production on her debut album Bitter’s Kiss travels through time. Bitter’s Kiss has a sharp sense of who she is at a very young age, and this album sounds like self-discovery. Bitter’s Kiss gets extremely personal on her records. In her single, “The Rope,” she notes that the song “examines her feelings about the suicide of a distant cousin from a very religious background and the importance of staying true to one’s identity and finding something personally significant to make life meaningful.” The video for the record is a poignant reminder of that memory, but also can be looked at as a piece of art and message for anyone who is currently going through the same pain. The video shows Bitter’s Kiss and a young girl who is mirroring Bitter’s Kiss as they go through the journey of discovery and acceptance.
The video is honest, it is pure, and it is important for someone her age to create music that faces so many teens and young adults today.
We love that Bitter’s Kiss has taken a new fresh and personal approach to her music. We know that Bitter’s Kiss has a bright future in front of her. The productions, the vocals, and content are only going up from here. Check out Bitter’s Kiss’s music from her SoundCloud below.
