Karina Rae - Bitch Boy - Stereo Stickman

Karina Rae Bitch Boy


Far exceeding expectations from the title and retro font, Karina Rae offers a mighty reminder never to judge a book or a song before you’ve delved in.

Bitch Boy is a brilliant pop single, in short. Beginning with a multi-layered soundscape that’s as bright as it is energising and colourful, progressing through a delightfully addictive melody, becoming an easy hit in general; complete with a superb touch of electric guitar solo between vocals.

Tipping its hat to the pop-rock sound of the nineties – and, in hindsight, the retro artwork playing a similar card – Bitch Boy is a catchy number with surprisingly heartfelt, genuine verses to it. At the same time, the song introduces the artist Karina Rae in a memorable fashion – great vocals, accessible yet strong, emotive and meandering naturally through this melodic progression. There’s versatility in the sound, a sense of musical influence that runs across genres and generations.

Karina talks of love, those who are afraid of it – she offers deeper layers than the simple resolve of the name-calling title; a moment which, ultimately, simplifies the depth of the concept to round things up in a memorable and broadly relatable, contemporary way. A smart move, really, and a fantastic sound and style.

Bitch Boy is a song that will leave its melody and spiralling synth soundscape lingering in your mind long after the music has stopped.
