“Fuck Around Phase”, The New Single From Housewife Out Now

Toronto-based indie rock outfit Housewife deliver their new single ‘Fuck Around Phase’, available via Hazel Street Records/The Orchard. Guided by a lush mix of distorted guitar riffs and pop-flavoured melodies, ‘Fuck Around Phase’ reunites Housewife (the professional moniker for 20-year-old Brighid Fry) with frequent co-writer and producer Gabe Simon (Lana Del Rey, Noah Kahan) and includes a co-write from fellow singer-songwriter Savana Santos (JP Saxe, Sophia Messa, Riley Roth).

‘Fuck Around Phase’ is the first taste of Housewife’s more mature and intentionally genre-blending sound, showcasing Fry’s musical style evolution from her childhood folksong influences, to her self-described early-teenage emo phase, to this contemporary amalgamation of rock, pop, and lo-fi – all buoyed by her natural gift for melody.

This song is about learning to enjoy yourself and be present after going through a difficult time,” shares Fry. “I want to embrace being messy and not take things too seriously!”

In 2022, Housewife signed to Hazel Street Records and released the five track EP You’ll Be Forgiven, lauded by CBC q’s Tom Power as “thoughtful and introspective [with] lyrics about coming of ages, growing up, and making mistakes.” Already touting notable accolades for  previous releases including a Toronto Independent Music Award, the Canadian Songwriting Competition in the under-18 category, a Canadian Folk Music Award and the Slaight Music It’s Your Shot Award, You’ll Be Forgiven took Housewife to new heights, receiving high-praise from FLOOD, FLAUNT, Exclaim!, BrooklynVegan and more.

Housewife’s music regularly touches on the experience of being a young, queer, AFAB person existing in a male-dominated and patriarchal industry. In addition to exploring these themes in their music, Fry is also an advocate for 2SLGBTQ+ rights, reproductive freedom, and environmentalism, proudly fighting for immediate government response to protect ecological catastrophes as a founding member of the Canadian chapter of Music Declares Emergency.
