Sonic Songstress Kacy Hill Returns With "Frog Rinse"



Sonic songstress Kacy Hill has made her return during the last quarter of 2023 and her newest single “Frog Rinse” is one of the most captivating tracks released this year. Following up her first single in over two years, “No One,” “Frog Rinse” focuses on challenging the listener’s ear to enhance Hill’s candid lyricism. 

The track opens with a soft electronic introduction that seamlessly welcomes a traditional guitar pattern that, combined, creates magic. Hill immediately evokes visceral memory by referencing 2016, delivering a hyper-relatable first chorus with her dreamy vocalization. She recalls a time when life felt different, not necessarily better, but a comforting idea of normal. Searching for normalcy feels ethereal in “Frog Rinse”, through thought-provoking lyrics such as, “I keep replaying, channel changing what I want / Now just make it make sense”. 

Upon first listen, the track’s captivating chorus presents as an illegible mashup of vocalization over a beautiful ensemble of harmonization, but once the lyrics make themselves known, listeners are cued into a deeper meaning. Hill repeats, “I told you that I love you, is that enough to get through anything we go through?” like a manifestation that everything will be okay. Combining reflection of the past and fear of the future gives “Frog Rinse” multiple layers for listeners to chew on. In the second verse, an intriguing mechanical production element is introduced to juxtapose the crystalline nature of the track, complimenting the multiplicity of thought. 

Hill expresses the complexity of her thoughts in such a gracefully vulnerable way in the second chorus. She acknowledges her dark thoughts and attempts to predict the outcome of her own decisions. She succinctly describes inner turmoil that anyone can relate to. After the final chorus, the track fades into oblivion by removing production elements one by one. It’s a beautiful breakdown of sound, leaving listeners to ponder as the track comes to an end. 

Hill’s beautifully airy voice has always sounded alluring alongside unpredictable production choices, and “Frog Rinse” showcases her versatility wonderfully. The glitch-pop track feels right for a winter release, a time when everyone is considering their own journey in life and self-reflecting becomes unavoidable. It’s clear that Hill’s creativity holds no bounds and we can’t wait to see what she has in store for the upcoming new year.
