Part of a new generation of trippy electro hyper pop, BIG KILL shares “SAAB 900” ahead of their upcoming mixtape. On the song, the Vancouver production duo behind BIG KILL, Cayne McKenzie and Andrew Huculiak, rapidly switch between various genres. It’s ironic that a track pulsating with futuristic sounds is named after a defunct car. This seems representative of the tension between capitalist ideals and alternate realities. Embedded within their music is the message of free expression – a rebellion against toxic masculinity. Revealing both masculine and feminine qualities, “SAAB 900” succeeds in breaking boundaries. Get into the single below, which is equal parts head banger and surreal dream pop.
BIG KILL presents an internet utopia
As a social movement, there’s so much more to the music duo than just glitchy fun beats. Andrew Hucliak comments on the full extent of their intentions.
BIG KILL represents a forceful push into a philosophical, online, oppositional, inclusive, empathetic, self-empowered communist utopia driven by the internet. We’d like to present a healthy male friendship that’s deep and playful and vulnerable as an example for other people like us. And hopefully, those not like us will find amusement and power in the exploration.
Let’s hope that society moves towards the ideals BIG KILL sets forth, as a breakdown of toxic masculinity is always in demand.
The road ahead
Before releasing “SAAB 900,” Big Kill put out “Fat Lip.” This received attention from EARMILK among others. It carries through BIG KILL’s punchy, almost intrusive style (in the best possible way). On the song, they worked with hip-hop artist Debby Friday, who’s enlisted BIG KILL to produce songs – including Pitchfork-approved “Runnin.” As music disruptors, BIG KILL intends to not follow norms whenever possible. Their release style promises to be an organic journey. You can follow along on BIG KILL’s website. If you’re seeking a new music experience, hop into their “SAAB 900” and see where the road leads.
