Uffie is back, releases new single “Cool” on Toro Y Moi’s Company Records
Uffie, the French-American singer/rapper/DJ/fashion designer who took the internet by storm in 2006 with "Pop the Glock" (and more recently collaborated with Charli XCX and Galantis), is back with a new single, "Cool," that's out via Toro Y Moi's label, Company Records. "Cool" dabbles a little in rock rhythms while still making room for her signature vocoder/autotune sound.
"The song is about being co-dependent in an emotionally detached whirlwind of a relationship," says Uffie (real name Anna-Catherine Hartley). "I was afraid to stop moving at that speed, thinking there would be no ground below. So much happened on the surface that felt impressive; for me, a lifestyle of excess left me naïve, thinking there must be something deeper there. When I paused in the eye of the storm to look around, I realized it was all rooted in toxicity. Sometimes you decide to walk away, others you just say “cool” and close your eyes."
