wifisfuneral Announces Smoking Mirrors EP, Releasing May 28th via Alamo Records
The Endlessly Creative Emcee Continues His Melodic Direction with “Where I’m Going,” the EP’s First Video Single
The Palm Beach County Native’s Upcoming EP Features Production From JetsonMade, Nvbeel, and More
“[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
wifisfuneral is a restless creative, shifting his sound and vocal approach to fit the themes of the music he makes. Last year, wifi switched-up his approach to add more melody, and he continues that artistic direction with Smoking Mirrors, his upcoming EP. The follow-up to his acclaimed 2020 project PAIN?, the Smoking Mirrors EP is a wavy and tuneful trip into wifi’s mind, confronting his demons head on. The EP juxtaposes wifi’s dark night of the soul ruminations with in-depth examinations of wifi’s romantic entanglements, delivered in twisty, melodic flows. Featuring production from JetsonMade and frequent collaborator Nvbeel, who produced wifi’s fan-favorite “Peace Sign” ft. YBN Nahmir, among others, Smoking Mirrors arrives on May 28th via Alamo Records.
Along with the announcement of the EP, wifi shares “Where I’m Going,” a forward-looking single complete with a surreal music video. A haunting effort populated by distorted vocal samples and subsonic 808s, “Where I’m Going” is a tantalizing blend of wifi’s new and old styles, mixing back-of-pocket auto-tuned warbles with fast-talking triplets as the 24-year-old artist brags about getting money since his SoundCloud days. A tale told in reverse video finds wifi in the thrall of a beautiful woman, who takes the rapper on a journey in a bright-yellow foreign car before she vanishes into the wind.
In 2020, wifisfuneral’s new album PAIN? introduced the world to a new side of the rapper, integrating auto-tuned singing into his cerebral blend of hip-hop. PAIN? is home to several well-received singles, including the Smoove’L-featuring “Ocean” and lo-fi pop gem “Lost In Time” ft. Coi Leray. In late 2020, wifi showcased certain album highlights with live performance videos, including clips for ride-or-die lead single “End Of Story” and playalistic cautionary tale “Guy Like Me.” The album was praised by Stereogum, XXL, HotNewHipHop, Lyrical Lemonade, and more. With Smoking Mirrors, wifi takes the next step in his artistic progression, proving the versatility of his newfound style. Stay tuned for more.
