Toronto-based indie rock outfit Housewife delivers 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!”

I grew up in Alberta, but spent most of my life in British Columbia – I also spent a lot of my summers in Britain as I was lucky enough to have immigrant parents with the capital to go visit our relatives. The amount of time I spent overseas makes it hard for me to say I feel fully Canadian, but it does make me feel typically Canadian as so many of us have mixed parentage. My parents defined another divide in me as I feel inexorably pulled to both science and the art; my father being a doctor and my mother being a school teacher. I studied both in university and now work on making healthcare software during the day, then write/read/draw/paint/dance in my evenings. My global wanderings, my education, and the fact that my appetite for media could be described as ‘voracious’ means my frame of reference is pretty varied. It’s hard to say that I have a favourite music genre, rather I am always seeking sounds that convey a sense earnestness an honesty.
