Disney+ series Loki premiered earlier this month, diving in on the story of the mischievous Marvel character, played by Tom Hiddleston. Halfway through the first season, Loki featured the most popular song on TV last week.
Opening the latest episode, ‘Demons’ is heard over the Marvel Studios intro and during the opening scene as C-20 having a drink with a friend. C-20 is asked about the TVA as the song continues in the background of the bar.
‘Demons’ was released in January 2020 on the EP I’m Too Sensitive For This Shit. It is the first song on the 5-track EP. ‘Demons’ has a creepy and glitching sound to the track. The lyrics are about the artist’s battle with her own thoughts. She equates her inner demons with a monster that’s “tryna eat me, tryna feed me lies.” This track has also had a placement in MTV series Siesta Key.
