Much like their previous single "Fuck Around Phase," Housewife's latest single blurs the line between indie rock and pop. "King of Wands" is that newfangled style of indie rock that is more pop than rock, but still has enough noise and edge to keep it from being too pop. The Toronto based artist has crafted a fun and catchy song with "King of Wands" that is just begging to become a huge bona fide international hit. As indie snobs, we usually hate when our beloved bands blow up, but if Housewife does, we'll be ok with it. There is no way a song this good doesn't deserve to be huge.
Brighid Fry (aka Housewife) says of her new single:
"'King of Wands' is a song about the Patriarchal attempts to diminish women’s confidence in their own intuition. Women’s intuition, spirituality, and solidarity are things that keep us safe and thriving – I wanted to write a song about reclaiming that."
