LISTEN: New Zealand-born artist Kelsy Karter talks heartbreak and finding yourself with debut album “Missing Person”

Proclaimed a “rockstar in the making” by NYLON, Karter releases her anticipated debut album Missing Person on Oct. 2nd, 2020.

Karter burst onto the scene in 2019 after a prank video of her getting a fake Harry Styles face tattoo went viral on social media.

Fast-paced tracks like “Love Me or Hate Me” and “Stick to Your Guns” allow for Karter’s rock vocals to truly shine, while discussing important topics like self-image and figuring yourself out. The fullness of Karter’s voice adds so much to the album’s overall feel, reflecting the fullness of the experiences lived that she’s singing about.

“For a while I sort of lost myself, which is why the album’s called Missing Person,” Karter said. “But through the process of making the record I found myself as an artist and an individual.”

“It’s a cheeky and dramatic mix of punk and glam rock. When listening to this record, I want my fans to feel like a total badass and completely vulnerable at the same time.”

Missing Person is out via BMG Recordings. Take a listen below:
