mp3 premiere: "Kim & Kim" - The Total Bettys
Back in May, The Total Bettys released the unforgettable Peach and if you're in need of another shot of their sunshine-infused surf rock, you're in luck. The band made a theme song for the comic Kim & Kim, effortlessly capturing the vibrant, colorful world of this kick ass comic with a track that's catchy and breezy, complete with heroic chants. The single was part of a tape that has since sold out, but we're stoked to bring you its online premiere enabling you to listen until you feel inspired to fight off every evildoer that gets in your way. The band explained their motivation for creating the track saying,
The story behind why we ended up writing a Kim & Kim theme song: my awesome trans girlfriend told me about this great comic called Kim & Kim, written by a badass trans woman author, featuring two extremely cool and well developed queer women best friend intergalactic bounty hunters. We read the book together, and I followed the writer (Mags Visaggio) on Twitter. We got to talking on Twitter, and Mags told me she wanted to plan something really special for her appearance at San Diego Comic Con back in August. She asked if The Total Bettys would be willing to write a custom K&K song for a limited edition cassette release. Of course, we were all about that.
