phonewifey links with Kakoushka for dance-pop single ‘SO BAD’

It's the first taste of an upcoming project they describe as "part personal-exorcism, part political venting and part love letter to the London rave scene and hard-dance music"

09.12.20,

Hot on the heels of their ‘phoneveryone’ mixtape in 2020, phonewifey returns with melancholic dance-pop banger ‘SO BAD’.

We’ve been working on the track with them via our DMY Artists, and the single is out today – a taste of a new six-track EP.

phonewifey describes their upcoming ‘HARD YEAR’ project as “part personal-exorcism, part political venting and part love letter to the London rave scene and hard-dance music.”

They continue: “I started writing the record in the latter half of 2019 when I was going through some personal stuff, the end of a long-term relationship coinciding with a death in my family was a lot at once, but I was finding that dances and raves in London were really helping me through that moment in my life.

“There was an exuberance in the music being played and a camaraderie at the events which made every night, whether it was Trance Party, Noisenix, Endless, NRG, Eastern Margins, Tremors.tv, Princesscore, GÆZ, New Scenery or any of the other countless nights going on around London, something to get excited for. I began to get super influenced by euphoric trance and hard-dance music again, something I had previously been making as a teen, but with a new sense of urgency and combined with the pop and alt-rap influences that were at the core of my music as phonewifey.”
