Singer-songwriter Hayley Thompson-King was known for being a curious child, and it’s a characteristic which has stayed with her throughout the years, growing to a fever pitch in her catchy new single, “Teratoma.” The fuzzy garage-rock track encourages listeners to not only question but also dismantle the idea of false idols, and today, NYLON is premiering the new single.
Thompson-King says the song came to her “fully formed.” She explains of the song’s creation: “I kept fighting it because I thought I was ripping someone off. It turns out I wrote this song, and there was something instinctual that the band was responding to.”
