With its intoxicating blend of pounding beats and manic electronics; resisting the urge to dance is futile when it comes to ‘I GOT IT’, the latest single from DEBBY FRIDAY. Taken from her upcoming debut album, GOOD LUCK, which is set for release via Sub Pop on 24th March, the Nigerian-born, Toronto-based artist’s track is an industrial-tinged club banger that provides a dizzying rush of euphoria.
Featuring a contribution from Montreal-based vocalist Uñas (aka Chris Vargas of Pelada), ‘I GOT IT’ is a celebration of the anarchy that comes with cutting loose on a club dance floor after the sun has set. “This track is a ‘Get in the Uber, Bitch!’ ode to nightlife, purgatory, and club rats everywhere,” Friday comments. “Uñas and I had been wanting to collab for a while and this was a case of right vibe, right time.”
Accompanied by a video, which stars Uñas and was directed by Friday, the visuals for ‘I GOT IT’ feature imagery from Friday’s upcoming short film, also titled GOOD LUCK, which will be released along with her album later this spring. The film is loosely based on the artist’s own experiences of growing up as “a zillenial anti-heroine”, and is co-directed by Nathan De Paz Habib (Chino Amobi’s Eroica, and The Bicycle).
Friday will be touring the US in Canada from February, and will be making her way over to the UK for a headline show at Corsica Studios with Grove in May. Full dates are listed below.
