Toronto-based indie rock outfit Housewife have released their new single, “Fuck Around Phase” today via Hazel Street Records. The new track reunites Fry with frequent co-writer and producer Gabe Simon (Lana Del Rey, Noah Kahan) in Nashville, TN and includes a co-write from fellow singer-songwriter Savana Santos. It serves as the first taste of new music and a new chapter for Housewife, introducing a more mature and intentional indie-rock driven sound. Listen to it now below.
“This song is about learning to enjoy yourself and be present after going through a difficult time,” says Fry. “I want to embrace being messy and not take things too seriously!”
20-year-old Brighid Fry (she/they), aka Housewife, creates effervescent indie rock interwoven with timeless and perspective songwriting. Already touting several independent Canadian music awards for their previous releases, their most recent EP, You’ll Be Forgiven, received praise from outlets such as FLOOD Magazine, FLAUNT, BrooklynVegan, and more.
Housewife’s music regularly touches on the experience of being a young, queer, AFAB person existing in a male-dominated industry. In addition to exploring these themes in their songs, Fry is also an advocate for LGBTQ+ rights, reproductive freedom, environmentalism, and is a founding member of the Canadian chapter of Music Declares Emergency, an organization that fights for immediate government response to protect ecological catastrophes.
