When NGHTMRE and SLANDER get behind an artist, they likely have a bright future ahead. The two acts recently announced the launch of their label, Gud Vibrations, and their first release has arrived in the form of "Deathwish" featuring fknsyd by WAVEDASH.
"Deathwish" takes a turn so unexpected that it would put M. Night Shyamalan to shame. The song starts out with fknsyd's angelic vocal ringing out over warm chords, all of which break down into a cacophony that twists into a savage drop. The serene motif at the beginning of the track only reappears briefly thereafter.
WAVEDASH made their big breakthrough with their 2016 OWSLA debut, "Bang," which received support from the likes of Skrillex and Kill The Noise. "Deathwish" isn't their first time enlisting fknsyd for vocals. The Florida singer (who produces music of her own) also contributed the topline of the title track from their June EP, Devil Music.
