Ashnikko is set to drop a pair of new tracks later this week.
Posting to social media, she explains: “I’m giving you 2 songs on September 29th. ‘Panic Attacks in Paradise’ and ‘Maggots’ were both written when I was in a very low place. A nasty festering place where brushing my teeth and getting out of bed was an accomplishment. The win of the day!
“I wrote ‘P.A.I.P.’ when I was annoying the fuck out of myself,” she continues. “I was fine, physically healthy, safe, etc. I was in so much pain but I couldn’t put a finger on it. I was insufferable. So obsessed with my own hurt. I was leading it around with me like a rabid dog, letting it bite anyone that I came into contact with.
“Where ‘P.A.I.P.’ is soft and forlorn, ‘Maggots’ is pure rage, an electric forcefield around myself darling people to come close. I decide that ebing a little villainous is a better lifestyle choice. I’d rather be a right bitch than let people take advantage of my kindness. I will take every parasite burrowing its way into my flesh and flatten it under my boots.”
If you want a sample of what to expect, Ashnikko also posted a snippet of ‘Maggots’, which you can check out below.
