The inimitable I’MMORTAL unleashes her second single, ‘Supervillain’

Alt-pop powerhouse and synesthete I’MMORTAL dropped her second single, the sizzling ‘Supervillain’, on October 30, 2024 via her own imprint, Immortality. I’MMORTAL is a New York and London-based music producer, vocalist, visual artist, and creative director. This track was produced by I’MMORTAL herself, with additional drum programming by Duanna. I’MMORTAL launched herself into the digital sphere in August 2023 with the release of her debut tech-house single, ‘Versace Spaceship’. Despite being relatively new to the music scene, I’MMORTAL has seen a steady incline in streams, monthly listeners, and hundreds of organic playlist placements, with her first two singles garnering 50K streams across platforms. These singles and ‘KILLED U IN A DREAM’ are accompanied by tripped-out psychedelic music videos. With a sound influenced by Sevdaliza, Britney Spears, Lady GaGa, Lana Del Rey, Bjork, SOPHIE and many other femme avant-pop luminaries, her sound is sure to be enjoyed by fans of those artists and Alison Wonderland, Zhu, Deadmau5, Pastel Ghost and Billie Eilish.

‘Supervillain’ opens with mischievously infernal orchestral strings, setting a playful yet defiant tone for the rest of the song. An infectious four-on-the-floor ushers in I’MMORTAL’s anthemic vocals, which whip the listener up into a sassy frenzy as her campy, catchy techno take on Bach’s iconic ‘Toccata and Fugue in D minor’ makes for a diabolically cinematic soundtrack to be bold to.

I’MMORTAL revealed: ’Supervillain’ is a campy electro-pop song I wrote with the intention of reflecting a people-pleaser’s fantasy of being the villain. I wanted the lyrics to be simple, cheeky, and relatable to those who feel like they have been nice and compromising for too long. I produced the song to be campy and grand, but to feel both old-timey and futuristic at the same time. I wanted listeners to feel like they are at a rave in Dracula’s castle. Thus, I sampled the notes from Bach’s classic Toccata and Fugue in d minor (Dracula’s song), but changed the articulation of the notes and also added some grace notes to better fit my track. I most enjoyed creating the switch up in the last chorus. As a producer, there was something very satisfying to me about placing a gliding, gritty, and electronic bassline underneath a string arrangement sampled from a piece written in the 1700s by Bach.”
