Australian-born, Los Angeles-based producer Kito returns with “Sad Girl Music” feat. BANKS. Released today via Astralwerks, the track received a global premiere from Triple J (Kito’s fifth Triple J premiere). The song finds BANKS contemplating the slip-up that’s turned her into a “bad girl listening / to sad girl music” and Kito redefining what “sad girl music” sounds like. Listen HERE. View the visualizer, which features both artists, HERE. The track follows Kito’s late 2021 EP Blossom and marks her first collaboration with BANKS since she co-produced “Gimme,” the lead single from the renowned singer-songwriter’s 2019 album, III. Kito and BANKS wrote “Sad Girl Music” with MNEK, M-Phazes, and Rory Noble.
Kito says, “’Sad Girl Music’ is our bad girl anthem; I’ve had it on repeat ever since BANKS got on it and it’s definitely one of my favorite releases to date.”
BANKS adds, “After working together on ‘Gimme,’ Kito and I always talked about making more music together. When this song came together, it felt right. Doing a feature is fun for me because it gets me outside my box a little bit and this is a fresh, bouncy tune.”
