"The Tipping Scale" by Kinlaw Out Now!

Kinlaw's debut record The Tipping Scale is here. We've said it before and we'll say it again, this experimental avant-goth-pop record is made for fans of Kate Bush, dancing alone & long hard cries. It's a gorgeously sung cycle of songs that mix deeply personal lyrics with universal themes; Kinlaw is a smart, conceptual writer, one not afraid to explore deep emotions like loss, regret, and confusion, alongside strength, identity, and change. She explains that The Tipping Scale is an ideal metaphor for the record, the idea of an ever-present slipping in and out of change, and an acceptance of this kind of change. On it, she unravels intimate memories and tries to learn from them. As you listen to their songs and decode their words, you realize she’s not just building songs, she’s also creating a home—where painful thoughts of the past can exist within the present—as well as an entirely new, unflinching universe.

To celebrate the album’s release, Kinlaw shares today American Sign Language lyric videos for album singles “Blindspot” and “Permissions,” created in collaboration with artist and photographer Annabella Mull (she/they), who is hearing with two Deaf parents, and consider ASL their first language.
"Between the track’s ethereal instrumentals, introspective lyrics, and Kinlaw’s eerily beautiful interpretative dancing in its accompanying visuals, “Haircut” makes a strong case for entertaining the what-ifs." - MTV

“An odd and lovely thing, reflecting her obsessions with physical movement and her belief that it can propel one through darkness and disaster” - Metro

"[Permissions] is gorgeously unfolding affirmation that arrives with an equally striking video to match." -  The FADER

"Kinlaw, the Brooklyn-based choreographer...seems to have endless modes of expression." - them.
