NEW YORK, NY (October 13, 2017) — Today, Kailee Morgue officially releases the haunting music video for her viral song “Medusa” via Republic Records.
Less than two weeks ago Morgue premiered the full version of “Medusa” and upon release it launched to #2 on Hype Machine, was selected as “Best Track of the Week” by The New York Times, Line of Best Fit, MTV, Coup de Main and reached #2 on the Canadian viral chart on Spotify.
On creating the “Medusa” video Morgue said: “For the ‘Medusa’ video I wanted to show the vulnerability and desperation that radiates in the music. A kaleidoscope, lonely bath tub, and of course green undertones to pay homage to the legendary Gorgon, Medusa herself. To express that emotion in my first music video was a challenge for me, but I couldn’t be happier at how it came out and hope the message comes across to my fans”
The 19-year-old songstress first teased out the track in 2016 with a brief Twitter video, and it ignited a viral reaction spawning 100,000 “likes” overnight. Over an airy minimalistic soundscape, Morgue exorcises a, hypnotic, and heartfelt melody with haunting and powerful lyrics.
“Medusa,” which originally premiered on Fader, was produced by CJ Baran [Melanie Martinez, Panic! At the Disco, Carly Rae Jepsen] is the first official release by Morgue but be on the lookout for more news soon. In addition, she recently posted a cover of label mate Post Malone’s smash hit “rockstar” ft. 21 Savage. The track is a follow up to a previous cover she posted of “Feeling Whitney” back in January.

Tattooed, green haired, and anime-obsessed 19-year-old Phoenix-born and Los Angeles-based gothic pop siren Kailee Morgue casts a sonic spell with her music. A self-described “introvert” and the second oldest of six kids, she found solace in the sounds of fellow sonic sorceresses such as Stevie Knicks and Gwen Stefani as well as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and more. By the age of ten, she picked up her first guitar, began quietly penning music, and eventually started posting tracks on Soundcloud. Between a gig at Jack in the Box, an 18-year-old Kailee found the beat for “Medusa” on YouTube back in 2016 and cooked up the single. As “Medusa” became an underground phenomenon, she inked a deal with Republic Records in the summer of 2017.
