KALTBLUT teams up with Asbjørn to host interview series POPTOPIA exploring gender and identity in pop culture
In the coming weeks, the Danish singer Asbjørn will explore gender and representation further as a guest contributor on KALTBLUT. Under the title POPTOPIA, Asbjørn will host a series of interviews on Instagram Live and KALTBLUT, discussing identity and pop culture with prominent guests from both in and outside the music industry. POPTOPIA features artists in the likes of James Indigo, Charlotte OC, and many more.
For the first instalment of his POPTOPIA takeover, Asbjørn will interview the British singer Charlotte OC, who has recently released the single “Bad Bitch“, which was born out of “one of the most horrific meetings with an A&R”.
Leaving the meeting feeling like she had whiplash, Charlotte went to a bar by the river in Berlin and started drinking to drown her sorrows. After crying and laughing, she returned back to the UK a few days later and tried explaining where her brain went that day to her producer. When she was sober, she felt insecure, when she was intoxicated she was overly confident – there was no middle ground. The verses of Bad Bitch are Charlotte when she’s sober, whereas the chorus is Charlotte drunkenly ‘feeling herself’ and taking zero bullshit.
The interview will be streamed live via KALTBLUT’s Instagram on Thursday, 10th of June, at 8pm CEST.
