South Florida Phenom wifisfuneral Drops Paranoid Burst of Flames “wya?”
A deep, visceral wordsmith, 19-year old wifisfuneral is as loyal as he is sagacious. Anxiously questioning the whereabouts of his sweetheart, wifisfuneral professes “never could I love you like no other” on “wya?” The first single to follow When Hell Falls, wifi’s latest album, which peaked at #17 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart, “wya?” was dropped at the request of wifi’s Twitter followers when he asked them to “Tweet #wya if u want a new song.” “wya?” finds wifisfuneral expressing the duality of romanticism and paranoia, leaving and returning, grappling with newfound success over a milky turn-up chorus of a Cian P production. On the hook, wifi raps, “I just checked up on your location then I saw you wasn’t home/Now I’m running out of breath just to make it home, now I’m running out of breath just to/I’m steady calling to your cellphone, asking where you at?/Girl, you know I hate it when you leave, bring it back.”
After generating yet another wave of critical acclaim with the release of “instant classic” (ELLE) “slice of warm and wistful folk-pop” (PASTE) third single “Mildenhall”, The Shins have unleashed a fourth advance track from Heartworms: “Painting A Hole”. Textured with spiraling vocals and a body-swaying rhythm, “Painting A Hole” employs James Mercer’s singular lyrical voice to examine the way our society perpetuates beliefs that rarely reflect our everyday reality (“You’re painting a hole/Can you crawl up inside it?”).
James on the message behind the song:
“People create beliefs or inherit them and those beliefs very rarely reflect the reality we live in every day. Like a coyote in a cartoon, painting a hole in the side of a cliff then falling through it, I think these belief systems are just about as ridiculous as that.”

Love and the perils of love have guided their message through the years while the twists and turns of their instrumental pop experiments carve a labyrinth to be navigated carefully.
