“wfy” by poolblood
“wfy,” is the latest single poolblood. The track is about longing for a deeper connection with someone, knowing you can’t find it, and the continuous search for fulfillment. “wfy” is lifted off Maryam Said’s AKA poolblood debut album mole, which drops on January 13, 2023, via Next Door Records (The Weather Station, Ada Lea, Charlotte Cornfield). The video, directed by Laura Lynn Petrick, documents a typical day Maryam would spend by themselves in Toronto. “In a way, the song is about the anxieties of love and learning how to self soothe, and the video is about finding love in the mundanity of life, like doing your laundry. So I felt very connected to Laura’s ideas and felt the song could live perfectly in that space,” Said explains.
The album includes a multitude of collaborators, including Louie Short and Shamir worked with Said as producers on the project and played on a number of tracks, in addition to a cadre of musicians like Christian Lee Hutson, Eliza Niemi, Dorothea Paas, Grant Pavol, Victoria Bury, Annie Truscott, Nick Short, and Drew & Jeremy Harmon.
Raised in a religious household at arm’s length from popular music, Maryam nonetheless found themselves drawn in by the music of Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens), and many more.
