Rising pop star Cami Petyn is back with a brand new brilliant single “Psycho Bitch” featured along with an official music video
The new single “Psycho Bitch” is exemplary of her heartfelt but sharp-edged songwriting style and ability to craft anthemic lyrics from deeply personal themes, accompanied by a punch-you-in-the-gut video that explores aesthetics and visuals outside the norm of what “pop” might have you expect.
You’ll hear influences that range from Miley Cyrus to Madonna, wrapped in a unique and modern veneer. The absolutely huge chorus and lush layers of electronics and backing vocals drive the powerful statement of the song to the forefront. The music video is a gritty, caustic visual escapade that follows the themes of the song – a journey of self realization and female empowerment that ultimately ends in righteous (and well deserved) revenge and owning the moniker “psycho bitch”.
She says: “When I first moved to LA I had some nasty experiences with entitled men who thought they could take advantage of me. I was young and naïve back then so I never stood up for myself – this song is me imagining what I wish I would have done and what I hope other people do if ever in that position.“
And then adds: “This song to me is all about taking back your power. So, I want my listeners to imagine that they are also singing to people who have screwed them over and feel empowered. I think of this song as a feminist anthem, but, it really applies to ANYBODY that has felt taken advantage of. ANY gender can be a psycho bitch.“
Expect more music from Cami Petyn throughout the remainder of 2021,with a live show alongside fellow rising stars Flavia and L’Freaq taking place on September 15th at Resident in downtown LA.
Cami declares: “My music to me is turning pain into power. It’s how I connect to the world around me.” Connection is a fundamental part of Petyn’s presence, as she is known for her enthusiastic fanbase and genuine lyrics. Valuing transparency and innovation, Cami brings depth and authenticity to her music, using her lyrics to touch on topics that matter deeply to her: mental health, self-acceptance, and growth.
