When you listen to Brighid Fry, the creative force behind Housewife, you can tell that their music is here to stay. Through Housewife, Brighid is able to construct a timeless indie rock sound that features memorable melodies, radiant vocals, and authentic lyrics, earning multiple awards over the years such as a Canadian Folk Music Award and a Toronto Independent Music Award. The messages in their songs, along with their activism and work with organizations like Music Declares Emergency, ensure that Brighid’s legacy will live on in the years to come. For now, however, Brighid is ready to shift gears and enter their “Fuck Around Phase,” as we hear on Housewife’s latest single.
With a title that implies a bit of chaos and resilience, “Fuck Around Phase” is about doing whatever feels right, regardless of the rules or regulations at play. Housewife spices things up with fuzzy guitars, tight drum patterns, and sensual vocals that enhance the indie rock vibe of the track. Tauntingly, Brighid sings, “Don’t come crying to me / I like drinking for free / You don’t have to tell me how to behave / I’m in my fuck around phase,” warning those close by to watch out. You can check it out below.
About the single, Brighid shares,
“This song is about learning to enjoy yourself and be present after going through a difficult time. I want to embrace being messy and not take things too seriously!”
You can listen to “Fuck Around Phase” on platforms like Spotify, SoundCloud, and Apple Music.
