Housewife has entered her “Fuck Around Phase” 

Toronto-based indie-rock singer and songwriter Brighid Fry, also known by her stage name Housewife, is ready to get messy with her new single, “Fuck Around Phase.” 

Entering a new metaphoric era, Housewife has created a cultivated yet talentedly disheveled jam that’ll allow you to indulge in your own inner chaos. 

Cutting straight to the chase, this song oozes “young and dumb” energy (in a good way of course.) When it comes to establishing any kind of serious idea about life, I’d say most of society engages in a “wild” period. This period involves doing whatever you want, whenever you want. And if you’re lucky enough, you’ll get away with it with no repercussions. 

“Fuck Around Phase” captures that essence flawlessly with low, electrifying guitar riffs, solid drum beats, and mature but impenterable lyrics that circle around that idea of living in a time where you’re untamed, undomesticated, and unwilling to put up with any bullshit. “Put my art to the torch, child of my own divorce, I don’t want to call my lawyer today, I’m in my fuck around phase.” This is the quintessential, care-free, “be yourself” anthem of early 2023. 

The main message of the piece is to not take all of the decisions you make in life to heart. Mess around, live life to the fullest, and have some fun while you’re at it.

“This song is about learning to enjoy yourself and be present after going through a difficult time,” says Brighid. “I want to embrace being messy and not take things too seriously!” 

Brighid also uses her musical and songwriting skills to freely correlate the exposure of being a young, queer, AFAB person that happens to exist in a male-dominated world. She is also an advocate for LGBTQ+ rights, reproductive freedom, and environmentalism. Lastly, she is a founding member of the Canadian chapter of Music Declares Emergency, an organization that fights for immediate government responses that will protect ecological calamities.

Fuck Around Phase” is out now.
