Audio: wifisfuneral – “Ocean” ft. Smoove’L
The Florida Native Continues To Expand His New Melodic Style Ahead of His Upcoming PAIN? Album
“[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
Unwilling to compromise his artistic vision to fit in any pre-determined box, wifisfuneral is on a mission to show the world his versatility. Applying his nimble melodies to a hard-charging drill beat, wifi shares “Ocean,“ his latest single. Produced by Andy & Callari, “Ocean” reverberates with the syncopated percussion and wobbling bass of UK and Brooklyn drill, as wifi effortlessly floats above the fray with his flow-switching, auto-tuned patter. The song features an appearance from Brooklyn native Smoove’L, who feels perfectly at home during his brief, but memorable verse. Seeing an official release after wifi shared a live performance video last week, “Ocean” is the latest release from PAIN?, wifi’s upcoming album.
Fully integrating melody into wifi’s cerebral songwriting, PAIN? finds the 23-year-old rapper crafting infectious hooks and expressing the deeply-felt emotion reflected in his lyrics. The project is home to well-received recent singles like the expansive lo-fi pop gem “Lost In Time“ ft. Coi Leray and ride-or-die anthem “End Of Story.” Marking the start of a new chapter in wifi’s career, PAIN? arrives August 28th via Alamo Records.
Wifisfuneral has been consistently feeding his fans with new music over the past months, including the dark and metallic “ColdAsIce,“ released in March (518k 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 (17 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.
