A songwriter's inspiration can come from endless sources, but for Dama Vicke, it's the darker emotions that conjure the muses. Vicke was born in Mexico but has been based in the United States since the '90s. The songwriting on her last EP, Point of Inflection, reflects her multicultural upbringing with songs in both English and Spanish, but the rage is visceral in either language. "Prefiero soledad que tu crueldad alimentar/Circulabas rapidamente como veneno/hacia mi yugular," she writes on the pissed-off breakup missive "Sola," and the object of her ire doesn't fare much better on the goth crawl of "You're Not a Ghost": "Look at me," she taunts. "I'm finally laughing/At your useless self-righteous cowardice."
