After what feels like a eternity as we waited ever so patiently for it, KUČKA has unleashed her debut album – and it’s full of autobiographical stories on growth, love and journeying.
Wrestling is profoundly personal, traversing what has been described as a tough but fruitful transition in her life, spanning love, conflict, sexuality and maturity.
KUČKA AKA Laura Jane Lowther said: “Wrestling is a deeply personal album and releasing it feels like I’m passing around my diary for everyone to read –liberating and vulnerable at the same time. It’s introspective but with a little bit of party along the way and really touches the full spectrum of emotions that come with so much change. My hope is that as people immerse themselves in the world, they connect not only to the music and lyrics, but also themselves.“

“It’s hard to believe KUČKA’s Wrestling is a debut album. We waited two years for its release since it was first announced, but this is the kind of album worth waiting for. The record is a diverse collection of experimental electronic tracks, textured with glitchy synths, layered with KUČKA’s ethereal vocals. Wrestling is definitely a start-to-finish album – that is, one that takes you on a journey, as each song shares new, deeply-personal insight into her story, and one that you don’t want to turn off.”

“She’s worked with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, Sophie and Flume – now, Australian super-producer Kučka has finally unveiled her debut solo foray, Wrestling. An, ethereal sometimes abyssal collection of jilting electro-pop that’s equally as delightful as it is uncomfortable.”
