Audio: wifisfuneral – “Lost In Time” ft. Coi Leray
The Alamo Records Signee Continues to Explore His Melodic New Artistic Direction on this Immersive Single from PAIN?
“[wifisfuneral] displays an impressive array of verbal acrobatics, showing off masterful breath control and a rapid fire flow.” – Pitchfork
“He’s synthesized the regionless, borderless world of the internet age from which he takes his name, while lacing it with a narcotically addictive flow and a distinct ear for melody that’s allowed him to develop while others stagnate.” – NOISEY
“The young rapper has a wide range of skills, from agile raps and bass-heavy tracks to dark and moody slow-burners, and his unpredictability is part of his appeal” – Pigeons & Planes
Ever pushing the bounds of his artistry, wifisfuneral shows something new with every project. On his new single “Lost In Time,” wifi leaves behind the insular, cerebral rhymes of his past in favor of a sleek, melodic sound. Flexing his vocal muscles atop subsonic bass and futuristic electric keys, evoking the lo-fi pop of mysterious singer Jai Paul, wifisfuneral and guest vocalist Coi Leray try to escape a vicious cycle of breaking up and making up, determined not to waste their youth on a relationship that can’t be fixed. “Lost In Time” is the latest release from PAIN?, wifi’s upcoming project, following the romantic “End Of Story” single (215k+ Spotify streams).
Though previous tracks found wifi experimenting with auto-tune, including fan favorite single “Run,” PAIN? proves that wifi has fully integrated melody into his cerebral songwriting. The new project finds the 23-year-old rapper crafting infectious hooks and expressing the deeply-felt emotion reflected in his lyrics. PAIN? releases later this summer via Alamo Records.
“End Of Story” is wifi’s latest solo single of 2020, following the dark and metallic “ColdAsIce,“ released in March (492k Spotify streams) and the Cris Dinero-produced “idk.“ Earlier this year, he teamed up with veteran rock band Buckcherry to update their 2006 hit “Crazy B*tch,” and appeared on “Beretta,” a hit single by wifi’s fellow Floridian $not (16 million Spotify streams). PAIN? is the follow-up to the Ethernet series, comprised of albums Ethernet, Ethernet 2, and most recently EV3RYTHING SUCKS, wifi’s December 2019 EP, which featured appearances from YBN Nahmir and Ratchet Roach.
