A high concept audio visual project seamlessly fusing song and image, Rat City was conceived by Norwegian songwriter/producers Kent and Cato Sundberg, who have been a part of the Stargate writing stable and to date have had six #1 songs across Scandinavia. Known for their innovative and eye-popping animated visuals, the video for Naked (With my Headphones on)’ is no exception, this time starring Kiesza as a fully animated character in a narrative of heartbreak and redemption. ‘Naked (With My Headphones On)' is a very catchy pop infused track and the perfect party track filled with bouncy and pop influenced beats. Take a look at their fun and captivating animated music video down below:
Kiesza says about the collaboration ” Cato, Kent and I have known each other for many many years. I was a huge fan of them back when I was a starving artist in New York, long before Hideaway ever came into existence. I nearly moved to Norway to work with them at one point, around the time we released our song “Trigger Finger”. We have a musical chemistry that is really rare and special, and it always has felt like we had unfinished business until now. I’m really excited about their new project Rat City. They just keep outdoing themselves, and I love how they stay true to who they are now matter what anyone tells them. “Naked With My Headphones On” is such a jam! I can’t wait for the world to start blasting this song!”
In the words of Rat City, “It was great to be back in the studio with Kiesza when she was in Norway this summer. We had the track going and she came along and added an amazing vocal and a great, tough lyric. She asked if she could be a character in the video as she is a big fan of the Rat City world so we wrote her in. We think its our best track and video to date, we hope everyone likes it as much as we do”
