The artist introduced the six-song project with the tastemaker-approved single “Knew You.” Upon arrival, This Song Is Sick gushed, “Kailee Morgue returns to indie-pop glory,” Ones To Watch hails the song as “an exhilarating new sound” for Morgue, coupe de main observed “her tackling an intense love in her songwriting for the first time.” The video for the track, which Morgue wrote the treatment for, was directed by Ricky Anthony.
Primarily working out of producer and collaborator Cameron Hale’s Los Angeles studio, Morgue achieved a new level of cohesion while listening to powerful women in pop like Taylor Swift and Halsey as well as formative punk influences, including Black Flag, Gang of Four, and Neck Deep—Morgue even named the EP after a favorite Goldfinger song “Here In Your Bedroom” from their 1996 Goldfinger album.
On the EP Morgue says: “In female pop, there’s more anger than ever. There are more women screaming and being very forward about how they feel. I love that energy, so I tried to translate the power of older hardcore music into modern production. I realized you can make pop music with a punk spirit and I allowed myself to embrace the attitude. I also allowed myself to start writing about love songs and relationships. A lot of women can’t really talk about sex, so I wanted to do it in my own tasteful and soft ways. I want any listening experience to be cathartic. I’m showing both sides of myself now. Some of it is stripped down and upbeat. Some of it is angry. I love it when music can validate my feelings. If I can do that for someone else, there’s nothing better.”
Here In Your Bedroom spans a myriad of magic—from the sexy experimental bliss of “Tied Up” to the punked-up punch of “This Is Why I’m Hot” where raw riffs collide with an empowering affirmation, giving a middle finger to anyone questioning Morgue’s authority. The EP shows the world Kailee Morgue has returned with a lot to say and is not apologizing for it.
Ever since 2017 Morgue has been enchanting fans right out of the gate when she garnered unanimous acclaim from The FADER, New York Times, i-D, Nylon, V Magazine, PAPER, HIGHSNOBIETY, and more in recognition of her role as one of the progenitors of “bedroom pop.” Through a stream of consistent releases, Morgue arrived at Here In Your Bedroom where she perfects what she started by getting even more intimate lyrically, expanding the sonic palette with organic instrumentation, and letting her scream be heard louder than ever.
