Your pop bop for the weekend comes courtesy of Californian mega-talent Cassie Marin.
Lifted from new album ‘Lil 5i5’ (out now), ‘Jungle Fetish’ is a song of contradictions. While the production carries a light-hearted and playful tone, the lyrics are honest, brave and intensely raw. As Marin explains:
“I designed the production to carry a feeling of hope and magic but, the truth is, that the main themes required a lot of deep digging and hard work. ‘Jungle Fetish’ is an exploration of the self without judgment while also being a very tragic story about abuse and my victory over it. It is a reminder that no matter what harm may come to us, we deserve to feel dazzlingly pure and uncompromisingly brave.”
To date, Marin has received praise from noted tastemakers like Ones To Watch, Earmilk, Dummy and KULT magazines, while her catalogue of releases has amassed millions of streams across platforms.
