With her album KiCK i out digitally next week, Venezuelan electronic artist Arca teases the collection with one last future-pop single, 'Mequetrefe'. The track is crunchy and joyful, shifting through stripped back rhythms, melodic strings, and culminating in a buggy apocalyptic climax. 'Mequetrefe' is a word Arca heard growing up, but here she subverts its derogatory history and makes it her own; a heavy, infectious, club hit. KiCK i will be massive for Arca, no doubt seeing the artist's experimental sounds reach new ears with help from big name collaborators like Björk, Rosalía, Shygirl and SOPHIE. Arca delved into the song's meaning here...

“The song “Mequetrefe” invokes the tenderness behind expressing who you are without shame, and the confidence and bravery it requires, because expression of gender-nonconforming self-states in a public space can often result in static within your environment.”

Press play and have a boogie to 'Mequetrefe'...

Arca's 'KiCk i' is out June 26th (vinyl available July 17th) via XL Recordings.
