We’ve been dreaming of a follow-up to drag icon Courtney Act’s 2015 EP Kaleidoscope for years now, and the Australian singer has delighted us with the release of new music, Drop of Fluid. The three track EP contains tracks: One Tonight, Heteroflexible, and Fluid and is released with the announcement of Courtney’s upcoming UK tour.
One Tonight opens the EP, a track written by Courtney, Brandon Rogers, Ian Masterson and Joe Crow. The romantic anthem showcases Courtney’s vocal range against stirring, building production as Courtney sings “It might sound crazy, but I feel like we are one tonight.” It is followed by the dancefloor-ready autobiographical anthem Heteroflexible which plays with the concept of sexual identity. “Will I love you tomorrow if you love me tonight” Courtney sings as she contemplates romance with a heteroflexible man. The track benefits from its slick production from Ian Masterson and Samuel Garfield and Courtney’s savvy writing. The EP’s final track is Fluid – an anthemic call to arms which notes “Get into it, the future is fluid.” Packed with rollicking pop production from Masterson and Courtney’s sharp, engaging vocals packed with a powerful energy, Fluid is an all guns blazing closing anthem.
Drop of Fluid is Courtney’s first new music since Courtney’s fantastic Australian Eurovision attempt Fight for Love which was performed at the country’s Australia Decides grand final. Courtney has also had musical success with her Kaleidoscope EP and work with Drag Race friends Willam and Alaska as part of girl-group AAA.
Courtney will be playing live dates in the UK at the following locations:
