You may know quadruple threat Kat Cunning from their acting, modeling, dancing or musical affairs — at 31 years old, they’ve showcased their talents through many different outlets: Cirque Du Soleil’s show Paramour, HBO’s drama The Deuce, and most recently, Netflix’s Emmy-winning Trinkets. On the opening scene of the latter’s premiere episode for its second season, Cunning performed ‘Supernova (tigers blud),’ the single that marked their official debut with Lava Records. This song is a touching romantic offering with a spark of nostalgia, a letter to a lover in which they state, “I know that you are worth it all / And I’ve got tiger’s blood in me, baby.”
On Friday, November 20th, Kat Cunning released two remixes of ‘Supernova’ — an acoustic, laid-back version and another produced by the eclectic band PVRIS. The first adds a more delicate touch to the track, emphasizing the mellow feeling derived from the lyrics while still maintaining its anthemic vibes. On the contrary, the group’s rework is reminiscent of their signature sound, making for an even more euphoric and abrasive track that positions itself as a perfect choice for a late-night road trip soundtrack. A video for PVRIS’s remix of ‘Supernova’ was released alongside the song — contrasting with the original’s, this version even provides more stunning visuals with an edgier look.
Throughout all three released versions of the single, Cunning’s emotion remains visible — and its addictive hook, impossible to overlook. Whether you’re looking for a more relaxed sound or something to blast on your headphones, there’s an interpretation of this astounding track for you.
Kat Cunning has been making waves on the queer music scene for a while, and their journey couldn’t be more exciting to witness. You can expect to see them next year in the upcoming film Marry Me starring Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson and receiving even more remarkable tracks soon. In the meantime, you can listen to the ‘Supernova (tigers blud)’ remixes on all streaming platforms, including Spotify and Apple Music.
