Since finishing up her role of five years as triple j's House Party presenter, it's been absolutely non-stop for Kristy Lee Peters AKA KLP. Besides having a bub on the way, she's spent the last couple of months travelling and getting into the studio, and she's got a first taste of what's to come ready for ya right here.
'Under The Influence' is the name of her first release since her track 'Venus x Mars', and it sees her teaming up with Berlin based duo Kilian & Jo for it. She first met the duo on a writing trip where she focused on making music with strangers.
"One of the best days I’ve ever had writing was when I hired a bike and rode to the studio of Kilian & Jo. We hit it off straight away and dove into making a beat, random grooves and building layers. I scribbled some lyrics down and before I even sang my ideas out loud, they handed me a mic and I recorded the exact lines (still in the track) in one take - the very first time the words left my mouth!"

And this one definitely sees KLP stepping outside of anything we've heard from her before. This dark, brooding jam perfectly compliments the tone of her vocals, making for both a dancefloor friendly heater and one to sing along to by yourself.
2019 will see KLP release more tunes, and with this first taste of what's to come, we're excited to see what's to come!
