Wafia’s XXIX EP, named for the elemental symbol for copper, also features four new tracks with production from Ta-ku and Thrupence and an appearance from Brisbane’s Vancouver Sleep Clinic. Of her collaborators, Wafia notes, “Without each of them, this record would be vastly different. All my love to ThrupenceTa-kuVancouver Sleep ClinicBen Abraham & Andrei Eremin.

Audiences can also get a taste of the making of the EP via a short behind the scenes video put together by Wafia herself of which she adds, “It has been a big part of my life for the two years it’s taken me to make. This video (composed mostly of the scraps of snapchat videos I remembered to save) serves as a glimpse at my time in all the studios that have housed me and all the people I have been lucky enough to work with.

Wafia will appear as part of Ta-ku’s live show at Field Day, Southbound and Beyond The Valley this NYE.
