Bust Premiered Kim Boekbinder's "Head Bitch In Charge" Video! (Album Out On 9/8)

Kim Boekbinder is a noise witch, casting neon spells over shadowed rooms with her hypnotic synth incantations and pulsating basslines. Following up the success of 2013’s electro alt-pop space epic The Sky is Calling, Kim will releaseNOISEWITCH on September 8, 2017. Mixed by Joel Hamilton (Highly Suspect, Pretty Lights, The Black Keys) at Studio G in Brooklyn, the new album is danceable witch-pop, each song is a spell cast on the audience.

Kim has spent the last few years compelling audiences the world over with hypnotic video installations that complement her music, using looping, throbbing, layered soundscapes to craft a live show that was described by the peerlessPeaches as “intense!” She’s performed to loyal fans in Australia, Russia, Portugal, Belgium, Finland, Germany, France, England and the United States at such iconic venues as the Sydney Opera House, Caesar’s Palace Grand Ballroom, the Great American Music Hall, Webster Hall, and The Fillmore.

Originally from Canada but now a full-fledged New Yorker, Kim has been releasing music since 2006, starting as the duo Vermillion Lies. Her first full-length solo album, The Impossible Girl, released in 2010, was produced by legendary Boston producer Sean Slade. Kim has worked with Amnesty International, Fusion.net, The Equal Justice Initiative, PBS Space Time and most recently landed on the front page of the New York Times website with a Jay Z/Molly Crabapple collaboration she directed and did sound design for. She has also recorded music for book trailers, created commissioned songs for art shows, composed short film soundtracks, had her songs licensed by So You Think You Can Dance, the very popular Welcome to Nightvale podcast, independent films, and has written the music for an Official Selection at Sydney Film Festival and Annecy Animation Festival.

Kim has spoken at Ignite NYC, SXSW Interactive, and TEDxNYC about art and creative anarchy.

Kim is highly regarded as an artist developing innovative new ways for musicians to capitalize on the changing dynamics of an imploding music industry and exploding technology sector. She ran a subscription service before Patreon existed, inviting hundreds of fans to support her on a monthly basis, and she has successfully crowdfunded her three full solo albums as well as several tours and side projects. She just launched a new record label, Golden Glow Records, and looks forward to releasing new music by the talented and hard-working artists she knows and loves.
