Kiwi Jr. share new single ‘The Extra Sees The Film’ | New album ‘Chopper’ out Aug 12 via Sub Pop
Jeremy Gaudet says of the new single, “This song is quite literally a change of pace for us. It’s more chill and a bit darker than previous Kiwi Jr. recordings. It’s a song about whether or not you’re the hero of your own story, or a smaller part of something bigger. It’s bragging that you’re in a movie and inviting all your friends and family, but when it screens, you’re barely an extra in it. A lot of our songs deal with reckoning, this one in particular. It’s what happens after you’ve told your story and the truth comes out later, and everything unravels.”

Introducing Evangeline with heavy and hopeful debut single “Will”
Boyfriend recruits Pussy Riot for new hymn for the debaucherous “Dance With the Devil”
“I grew up believing in the Devil,” says Boyfriend on today’s release. “Try as they might to depict him as evil, my main takeaway was that he lived in the land of cigarettes and sex…he drank red wine, gambled, had a choir of electric guitars and was the keeper of the orgasm. This song is an invitation to the Devil’s party, where indulgence isn’t a sin and temptation isn’t a threat. It’s also an inversion of the patriarchal depictions of Satan… if God is a woman, so is the Devil, and she’s way more fun to hang with.”
Burning with wild enthusiasm and ephemeral charm, the songs contain a magic that can only Elle Teresa could wield. While calling her album ‘Sweet My Life’, Teresa sings lyrics like “Kuso mitaina my life” (“My lousy life”), marking her as a rapper who always keeps it real.
The first single “Fader” (available here: https://lnk.to/FaderSingle) features vocals by Jen Wood (The Postal Service, Tattle Tale) and houses the spellbinding couplet, “If I die next to you there would be no defeat/Only glory that would shine down on me.” Wasif and his collaborators harness piano, keyboard and long, moaning guitar notes that drift through the measures. Wasif so understands his instrument that not only can he mesmerize through his seemingly effortless expertise with six strings, he can convey three gentle, reflective notes to paint entire landscapes.
