On “Hidden,”music artists KTJ & Carly confront the darkness in all of us through atmospheric synths and breathless instrumentation. Lyrically, they capture the struggle of chasing someone happy to exist behind the walls they’ve built, and the pain of holding onto them despite your worst intuition. A booming chorus builds to a sonic experience lush with rhythmic intricacies and haunting chord progressions. The duos signature harmonies build out the sound, crafting a stunning melodic wave that washes over you. As they warn their potential lover of all that is hidden behind their fortress, they recognize the need to finally be seen, and contemplate the freedom of giving in.
Their unique blend of electro-pop, influenced by artists like ROZES, JoJo, and PVRIS, showcases both their songwriting prowess and incredible production talent. Their music has been featured on Apple Music’s ‘New in Pop’ playlist and a variety of publications, including, American Songwriter, Euphoria, Flaunt, and Rolling Stone IN, each praising their hooky melodies and powerful prose. The duo released their critically acclaimed debut “Identity EP” in 2020. Followed by singles including “Rollercoaster” and the sugary sweet fan favorite “Cherry Coke.” With a new project on the horizon, “Hidden” is yet another glimpse into what this multifaceted, ultra-talented duo is capable of.
