Kaatii | Afraid of the Dark

14-year-old Kaatii has returned with her latest indie-rock single 'Afraid of the Dark', which was released just in time for Spooky Season.


The uber-talented singer songwriter is way beyond her years. At just 14, Kaatii has became a force to be reckoned with in the indie rock / bedroom pop scene - easily comparable to the likes of Beabadoobee and Clairo. Kaatii's soft and gentle vocal builds throughout, with an edgy and grungy guitar driven instrumental. 'Afraid of the Dark' is a masterpiece, both epically catchy and lyrically brilliant with quirky melodies.

Although the track arrived as the ghosts, goblins, and ghouls come out to play this Halloweenfor Kaatii, paranoia is year-round.

“Afraid of the Dark is all about being unnecessarily paranoid for no real reason. You know, when your mind gets a little bit twisted and a coat looks like a ghost. The song is a fun take on something that is not fun at all. The inspiration for this song came from one really horrible night of sleep in a remote cabin in Colorado. I was in Breckinridge for a songwriting retreat and the very first night I ended up having the worst paranoia of my life, going in and out of what felt like sleep paralysis. In the morning, my co-writer, Kara Connolly, and I ended up writing this song after she was too afraid to sleep as well.”

'Afraid of the Dark' is out now.
