THE B-SIDE
Kim Petras (BunHead/AWAL)
5/8/18

WHAT IT IS: Somewhere between ’90s American pop and ’80s
European disco rises the undeniable voice of Kim Petras. The side-bun-sporting, German-born, L.A.-based songstress who counts Charlie XCX as a fan is powering up a new pop paradigm. Petras’ brand of escapism remains rooted in a boundless capacity for empathy, having received gender-reassignment surgery at the age of 16 and making worldwide headlines. Her bravery quietly and subconsciously punctuates the music. Named as one of Billboard’s “10 Pop Stars to Watch in 2018,” Kim is equipped to take over the pop world with latest single “Heart to Break.”
