Alt pop sensation I’MMORTAL introduced her dynamic second single, ‘Supervillain’, on October 30, 2024, through her label, Immortality. Operating between New York and London, I’MMORTAL embodies a multitude of roles—a music producer, vocalist, visual artist, and creative director. She took charge of the production for ‘Supervillain’, with additional drum programming contributions by Duanna. Bursting into the digital scene in August 2023 with ‘Versace Spaceship’ I’MMORTAL has swiftly gathered momentum, garnering 50K streams across various platforms for her initial two singles, complemented by visually striking psychedelic music videos. Drawing inspiration from luminaries such as Sevdaliza, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Lana Del Rey, Björk, SOPHIE, and others, her avant-pop sound resonates with fans of these artists as well as enthusiasts of Alison Wonderland, Zhu, Deadmau5, Pastel Ghost, and Billie Eilish. 

Starting with devilishly mischievous orchestral strings, ‘Supervillain’ sets a tone that’s playful and rebellious. A catchy four-on-the-floor beat kicks in, accompanied by I’MMORTAL’s potent vocals, sparking excitement. Her techno twist on Bach’s ‘Toccata and Fugue in D minor adds a wickedly cinematic backdrop, fueling sassiness and self-confidence. 

I’MMORTAL divulged: ’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.”
