Following 2022 singles Everybody’s Dead Inside and Superstitious, Alissic has just unveiled a brand-new song, bugfood.

Released today (August 25) via Ministry Of Sound, the musician’s latest track arrives ahead of Reading & Leeds at the weekend, and shows a fresh sound she’s dipping in to…

Says Alissic of bugfood: “This is a song about death, but more so resurrection of something we have forgotten. It’s something I have been yearning to sing about and face. We all have the potential to dig deep and find the creatures we once were. To find the bones to change ourselves and the world. to flesh ourselves out, find our breath, our truths.”

Meanwhile, of the hyperpop-esque music, she adds: “I don’t want to make just a pop sound, but to add elements of difference, and create a new style.”
