Emerging artist Coupdekat is back with her latest release, "it's not you!" – the final single from her upcoming EP titled "FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY." Fusing bouncy pop production, unique sound effects, and her signature playful vocal melodies, Coupdekat solidifies her empowering and tongue-in-cheek style in this track.
With lo-fi backing vocals and captivating chanting choruses, she asserts herself and her desires by confidently singing "I can't decide what I like, but it's not you." Coupdekat describes "it's not you!" as an empowering track that encourages acknowledging one's desires and feelings rather than suppressing them, talking about the track Coupdekat said;
‘It’s not you!’ is an empowering track about acknowledging one's desires and feelings rather than ignoring them. Following on from F.Y.E.O, I speak about sexuality and identity; both topics I’ve struggled with personally. My producer and I, Dom Anca wanted to create an upbeat dance/pop song with introspective lyrics and raw vocals, continuing to create a genre-bending sound. I only recently started working with Dom, but we immediately clicked and bonded over a shared vision of how these new tracks should sound. Unlike songs I’ve written previously, ‘it’s not you!’ is the first demo I wrote and composed on Logic from top to bottom, before bringing it to a producer. Surrounding myself with many talented female producers within the Loud LDN collective has motivated me to grow and develop my skills in the studio.”
Coupdekat's debut EP, "Imaginary Girls," explored online relationships and social media during the lockdown period. However, her forthcoming EP, "FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY," shifts the focus to a post-lockdown world and delves into her relationships with herself and others beyond the realm of smartphones. Reflecting the convergence of the real world and the virtual world, the EP combines live and electronic instrumentation with a plethora of internet samples, capturing the essence of youth culture in the new generation.
A true creative at heart, Coupdekat has successfully merged her passion for film, photography, music, and art into her live events. Co-founding the all-female identifying collective called "Loud LDN," which now boasts over 80 members, she has provided a platform to showcase and uplift female artists and creatives from across the country. The events have gained support from the BBC, NME, and Spotify's "Our Generation" event.
With her artistic versatility and rapidly growing success, Coupdekat is poised to make a significant impact on the pop music scene.
