The Tipping Scale is the definition of dark pop--it's an epiphany in a public space and an unraveling on the dance floor. Kinlaw's unstoppable singing will guide you through an introspective and very strange dance party, complete with synths, whispers, and high energy beats. A deafening debut, these are songs to move your body to. Kinlaw is a smart, conceptual writer, one not afraid to explore deep emotions like loss, regret, and confusion. 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 acceptance.
Kinlaw is a composer, choreographer, and artist focusing on empathic potential and agency developed by performance through audio, dance, and sculptural installation. Known for solo works and productions, she studies themes of power, memory, trauma, and connection. Her performances have been features in institutions like MoMA and MoMA PS1.
