White Sea, a.k.a. M83 member Morgan Kibby, is releasing her debut LP In Cold Blood on May 20th via Crush Music/Songs. Of the album’s inspiration, Kibby explained, “I took many cues from Prince, Donna Summer and countless films to hopefully impart a deeply moving and almost visual experience for people when they listen.” With her latest single “Future Husbands Past Lives”, those influences are apparent.
While we’ve already heard “Prague”, “Future Husbands Past Lives” is even more triumphant pop music, recalling the inviting hooks of MGMT and Haim’s debut albums. With glowing synths and Kibby’s piercing voice, it’s a promising preview of In Cold Blood. Listen in below.
After her album drops, Kibby will hit the road with synth-poppers The Naked and Famous. Her full docket is below.
