Kim about 'Kandy Krush'

It's a rock pop track, inspired by my band. When I wrote the song with some Swedish songwriters in Stockholm, I wanted to write a track that was gonna light up the stage. (1)

'Kandy Krush' came because I said I wanted to write a song that's a bit like a Billy Idol sort of 'White Wedding' thing. Let's go down that road. Everyone starts off with a 'let's try something a bit like that' or, something kick it off. Billy Idol kicked off that song for us. (2)
