“I’m a fly caught in your honey” sings Ariel Castro – the El-Paso born, Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Areli Castro behind KiNG MALA – in her bad-ass sweet new single ‘Sugarblind’.
It’s fun, upbeat, and full of good vibes. Staying true to her fun and carefree ethos – ‘Sugarblind’ lyrically takes you on a journey of wanting someone who may be chaotic, but the over-riding feeling of the lust takes over and you’re left feeling high from it.
Here’s what Areli Castro had to say about the moniker KiNG MALA:
“That's really the inspiration for the name KiNG MALA, king cuz fuck being someone’s queen, and mala literally means “bad bitch” in Spanish.”
I just love her attitude!
Her raspy vocals, brooding melodies, and muted tones, make ‘Sugarblind’ a relatable anthem for those of us in our twenties.
Produced by Rob Auerbach and mastered by John Greenham (Billie Eilish, Sam Smith, Katy Perry, Banks), the entrancing song evokes youthful energy while maintaining a musical sophistication.
