Jun 25, 2020This is Ghersi in her truest form — which is to say that it is many forms at once. The record zigzags between styles and moods at a breakneck pace, collapsing genre in its wake and crafting new pop forms – never has an Arca album held so many moments of pure songcraft.
Jun 26, 2020As she walks the walk and talks the talk, she makes it clear that KiCk i is her fullest vision yet for herself, the culmination of eight years of musically and visually rocketing outside the box, bridging seemingly diametrically opposed forces, and pursuing her muse no matter how strange others might find it. When she lets out a soft chuckle at the track’s end, she’s earned it.
Jun 29, 2020The sensory overload she tends to serve up will continue to confound many – even if this is her most accessible and celebratory record to date. Needless to say, her presentation of what she describes as “gender euphoria,” provides the perfect blueprint to a more healthy, embracing, and confident exploration of the concept and conversation of gender and identity in popular music.
Jun 29, 2020What could and should have been a coolly assured olympic plunge is instead a remarkably ungainly near-belly-flop of an album, weirdly devoid of the dense musicality, crooked charm and sheer kinetic potency which characterise Ghersi's works to date. ... The problem with KiCk i's particular brand of spontaneity is that it feels procedural and expository, rather than organic. It can seem, when the smoke clears here and there, a bit hollow.

En este nuevo álbum, Arca nos trae un poco más del extraordinario mundo del experimental, nos regala joyas como Björk cantando por primera vez en español, a la fresca y popular Rosalía, nos da un poco de perreo y por sobre todas las cosas, nos da a conocer lo bellamente enamorada que está de su amado Carlos. Un álbum tan divertido, interesante y vulnerable que te hará desear tener a alguien a quién dedicar tan hermosas letras.… Expand
