Korean-American musician Kristian J drops dreamy dance-pop production “Good Shit (On My Counter),” juxtaposing a sleek electronic soundscape with introspective lyricism. Exploring the burden of trying to forget your past, the escapist offering flips a sombre message on its head with melodic, feel-good sonics led by his smooth vocals.
A track that takes us through a painful tale of attempting to escape your regrets with the help of substances draws from Kristian’s personal experiences as he attempted to live “a life that I didn't really want,” with people whom he didn’t connect with. Taking us deep into his heart, the contemplative track began as a dark ballad, before finding new wings as a euphoric dance track under producer DB realgood$hit.
Kristian J’s musical identity is framed by his sexuality and multi-cultural lived experiences across the US, South Korea and Latin America, as his lush pop soundscapes aim to foster acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community. Having refined his sound into something sexy and camp in equal parts, this indie act continues to breathe new life and purpose into his earworm music.
