As a girls’ anthem with a darkly humorous message, mannequin rap duo FEMM’s acclaimed song ‘Fxxk Boyz Get Money’ found an audience with teens and influencers the United States, quickly spreading around Europe, South America and Asia. FEMM’s debut album Femm-Isation brought Japanese female rap to a whole new audience, reaching the Top 10 of Billboard’s World Albums chart in the US.
Since then, FEMM has travelled the world, not only performing on stages in the United States but also in the UK, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Indonesia, Taiwan and China. FEMM recently updated to FEMM2.0 and continued releasing content regularly.
In November 2020, FEMM released their long-awaited new six-track EP ‘404 Not Found’. The title, named for the error message encountered when trying to access a nonexistent web page, references FEMM’s music that evokes “a brand-new world that has never before existed.”
The EP’s production and its follow-up single ‘Tic Toc,’ released suddenly on Christmas Day 2020, saw FEMM working with some of the world’s top creative talents. Some of these producers include DaBaby and Lil Uzi Vert producer StarBoy, Charli XCX and Rina Sawayama trackmaker Danny L Harle, and recent US Gold Record recipient Vedo. A variety of talent from Japan also worked on the releases, including current Japanese hip hop scene innovator KM and Duke of Harajuku from up-and-coming label tokyovitamin.
These releases also saw FEMM work with visual collaborators from the UK to create their colourful yet disturbing worldview born from internet culture via vaporwave and ’80s revival aesthetics.
