We've signed Wicca Phase Springs Eternal! Stream "Stress" Ft. Georgia Maq

We are extremely excited to welcome Wicca Phase Springs Eternal to RFC. The solo project of Adam McIlwee, co-founder of GothBoiClique (a 10-person collective that included Lil Peep), Wicca Phase helped to assemble some of the most innovative new artists under one banner, blending dark electronics, trap rhythms and alternative music. To accompany the signing announcement, Wicca Phase teamed up with RFC label mate and Camp Cope guitarist/singer Georgia Maq to create the new track "Stress", produced by Fish Narc, and released today. RFC will re-issue Wicca Phase's debut LP, Secret Boy on October 19 and a pre-order is now available. Wicca Phase will also embark on a slew of tour dates this fall, currently announced shows are below with more dates on the way.

Through a unique and extensive discography that features a diverse range of sounds, inspirations, and collaborators, Wicca Phase Springs Eternal has become an influential pioneer in a vital new direction of underground music. After various singles, collaborations, EPs and the Secret Boy LP, Adam McIlwee continues to advance his innate gift with words and melody while also creating the perfect gateway for the uninitiated. Pushing sonic and cultural boundaries ever further, Wicca Phase will release his next LP - his most focused material to date - on Run For Cover Records in early 2019.

Hear a new Advanced Base song "Your Dog" on Consequence of Sound

"Your Dog", the new track from Advanced Base, is now available to stream on Consequence of Sound. Appropriately, the video features photos of fan submitted dogs! Consequence of Sound call the song "Gorgeous in its warmth and simplicity... Owen Ashworth writes lyrics so intimate and empathetic that you’d be forgiven for thinking him a confessional songwriter. However, he’s quick to point out that the majority of his songs are rooted in fiction, though that doesn’t diminish their emotional heft; if anything, his willingness to explore lends to the universality of his music.

Listen to "Your Dog" below, and read the Consequence of Sound piece here. Pre-orders for Advance Base's forthcoming album "Animal Companionship" (out 9/21) are available now.
