“I’m in the mood to pack a punch / only takes half of my energy to crush / energy crush you / you’re all talk no action.” Scathing 2020 energy. Inject. It. Now.
It’s been a weird year, but it doesn’t mean it’s been any less filled with fuckery than usual. And one artist coming through with an anthem of empowerment for women is New Yorker and indie-pop connoisseur WOLF with her luscious new track “High Waist Jeans”.
Opening with a voice note between WOLF and her sister, the track undulates with the artists signature rollicking 808’s, hooky melodies and withering metaphorical lyricism. It’s a play and repeat deal – one we never knew we needed.
“Picking high-waist jeans as a focal point was easy, I think when wearing any piece of clothing you love, you feel good about yourself, and that feeling is similar to when you accomplish your goals and have moments of success. There’s an energy you radiate that’s almost contagious, and it brings people out of the woodwork who don’t necessarily want to see you succeed but instead want to live in your head ‘rent-free’. I want this track to be a voice for girls who have experienced the same issues. I’m hoping people can relate to finding power in doing things for themselves and not basing life around someone else, because we’re absolutely capable, despite people underestimating us.”
