Synesthetic alt-pop sensation I’MMORTAL unveiled her fiery second single, ‘Supervillain’, on October 30, 2024, via her label Immortality. Based in New York and London, I’MMORTAL is a multifaceted artist—a music producer, vocalist, visual artist, and creative director. She helmed the production of ‘Supervillain’ with additional drum programming done by Duanna. Making her digital debut in August 2023 with ‘Versace Spaceship,I’MMORTAL has rapidly gained momentum, amassing 50K streams across platforms for her first two singles, accompanied by mind-bending psychedelic music videos. Influenced by icons like Sevdaliza, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Lana Del Rey, Björk, SOPHIE, and others, her avant-pop sound appeals to fans of these artists as well as Alison Wonderland, Zhu, Deadmau5, Pastel Ghost, and Billie Eilish.”

Commencing with devilishly mischievous orchestral strings, ‘Supervillain’ establishes a tone that is both playful and rebellious from the outset. A contagious four-on-the-floor beat introduces I’MMORTAL’s powerful vocals, igniting a spirited excitement in the listener as her whimsically catchy techno rendition of Bach’s renowned ‘Toccata and Fugue in D minor‘ crafts a wickedly cinematic backdrop, inciting sassiness and inspiring self-confidence.

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.”
