wifisfuneral Shares Smoking Mirrors EP, Available Everywhere via Alamo Records
The Palm Beach County Native Shares a Haunting New Video for EP Highlight “CC Demon”
Featuring Production from JetsonMade, Harry Fraud, Nvbeel, and More, the New EP Strikes a Balance Between wifi’s Disparate Styles
“[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
The EP + Video:
Expanding his introspective style to include auto-tuned melody, wifisfuneral is never content to remain artistically stagnant. Moving his sound forward with a new EP that combines his new and early styles, wifi shares Smoking Mirrors. Spanning seven tracks, the new EP combines wifi’s inward-facing lyrics with souped-up production, with speaker-knocking percussion and energizing synths, giving his music a vital rush that behooves his hyperactive state-of-mind.
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. Smoking Mirrors features production from wifi’s frequent collaborator Nvbeel, but also reaches outward, bringing JetsonMade‘s subsonic 808s for recent single “CC Demon” and Harry Fraud‘s organ-drenched boom-bap for “ScratchUrBack.” Home to “Where I’m Going,” a forward-looking single that expands upon the melodic sound he introduced in his 2020 album PAIN?, Smoking Mirrors is available everywhere via Alamo Records.
Along with the new EP, wifi shares the paranoid clip for the JetsonMade-produced “CC Demon.” His flow bouncing on Jetson’s trampoline 808s, wifi falls into a toxic relationship in the song, giving into attraction and plunging headfirst without dwelling on the potential consequences. In the new video, directed by Bobby Astro, wifi is stalked by a mysterious vixen, who attempts to lure wifi out of his house and commit untold mischief. “CC Demon” is the second video from Smoking Mirrors, following the surreal clip for “Where I’m Going.“
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 the Stereogum-praised 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.
