With temperatures falling, one thing to keep the barometer up is Ephwurd’s latest collaboration with Oneeva–their new single, “Function.”
A bass-driven journey through time, “Function” allows Natalie Kyoko Waters’ vocals on the song to shine through before its wobbling bassline kicks in. Layered with serrated electro synths and effervescent melodies, the lyrics hint at a technological “malfunction”; thus the intersection of humanity and artificial intelligence reaching unknown territory. This heater keeps it old school while reflecting the current trends of dance music and is an instant fire starter for these colder months. The duo has been on a tear this year and looks to carry that into next year as the timing of this release can suggest.
