“Weedkiller” by Ashnikko

With arresting pop hooks and the atmosphere of a post-apocalyptic action film, “WEEDKILLER” comes through like an artillery barrage. The popstar took a page from Arca’s very own dystopic production with industrial and bionic production thrills.

“My bioluminescent heart is glowing. My post-apocalyptic fae world is here for you to journey into. My wings have been ripped out, but I’ve built them anew using WEEDKILLER machine parts. I am the one sent here to eliminate you, WEEDKILLER.”

Ashnikko

On “WEEDKILLER,” Ashnikko delves deeper into the dystopian fantasy concept behind her forthcoming debut album, which she thoughtfully crafted alongside longtime collaborators Slinger and Oscar Scheller [Charli XCX, PinkPantheress, Rina Sawayama] as a poetic commentary on environmental disaster and the rapid evolution of technology.

This is the song that spawned the whole album,” explains Ashnikko. “It’s the climax of the record, the epic fight scene in the wasteland. Swords drawn, roots deep into the ground, I have come here to photosynthesize and eliminate the weedkillers. It is a violent fantastical storytelling set in my realm.”

WEEDKILLER carries the tartered Ashnikko through a gloomy world on the single artwork. And by the battle-ready stance, the track is ready to fight to the finish. Fueled by similar images like Liam Neelson from Taken and the alien Predator, the lyrics go as hard as gunshots heard throughout. Against Ashnikko, “WEEDKILLER” sounds like game over for any rival.
