FEATURETTE is a late night snack of gritty earporn with hooks you can sink your teeth into. Think Flume meets NIN with a little Billie sprinkled in there. Female fronted by Lexie Jay (Vox) and backed by bandmates Marc Koecher (Keys/Synth/Guitar) and Jon Fedorsen (Drums/Synths), the Toronto-based genre-bending project are ready to carve out their own niche in the market with their dark, bouncy, and addictive beats.
“Cocaine” is their comeback standalone single and their first new release since 2021. This song was born from indulgence and leaning into the chaos, when it comes to love obsession. They say that love is a drug, and that’s exactly what Lexie Jay wanted to convey. The track rushes like a fluttering heartbeat, it’s full of run-on sentences and cyclical thoughts, it’s absolutely relentless, and gives no relief.
“Obsession has been a topic I’ve been stuck on since the pandemic started,” says Lexie Jay. “Too much time to think, coupled with a racing mind, has been a recipe for disaster, so I started writing some of my thoughts down. There is definitely a truth to ‘too much of a bad thing’… but it can be hard to resist.”
