Sometimes having a string of fleeting romances in our teen years makes it easy to feel like there might be something wrong if we can’t settle on one person… Canadian pop artist Kayla DiVenere confesses to these feelings, and more, in her alternatingly depressed-then-exuberant new single, “PSYCHOPATH” – check it out here:
Kicking off with a dark and heavy bassline that’s somehow both goth and grunge-y all at once, the pace picks up and the Montreal-born / Los Angeles-based dynamo’s song quickly turns into a danceable pop-punk earworm.
“Why do I keep stopping
Before it starts
I jump to the end
Like you already broke my heart”
Soon, the narrator asks herself: “Am I a psycho, psychopath / What’s wrong with me, I’m scared to ask.”
Another simpler explanation, however, soon arrives in the second chorus: “Boys are dumb.”
