“Golden Retriever Boy” is the hypnotic and mysterious new song by L.A.’s @KiNGMALAmusic

KiNG MALA, “Golden Retriever Boy”

With an imaginative title like “Golden Retriever Boy”, one has only to imagine what L.A.’s KiNG MALA (which means “bad bitch” in Spanish) is going to sing about it. Her music has been featured in this blog before, and she’s a confident alt.rock singer who is definitely in her own lane. At the root of “Golden Retriever Boy” is betrayal by several different kinds of guys.  There’s the sweet guy with a side that doesn’t come out till later, and then there are the fuck boys, and the song is a huge kiss-off to both kinds of guys.  I’d argue that the same could be said about similar women, too. KiNG MALA’s impressive vocal and the provocative flow of the song are immediate draws, which are also captured in its intriguing video above. And, the song drops a great lyric for me: “I read your zodiac / You’re an Aries and that’s fucking scary”, since we Geminis are drawn to Aries like bees to honey, but often pay the price…
