Foonyap shares new single “The Fun Machine”

Calgary-based artist FoonYap recently premiered the single “The Fun Machine” via The Fader.

FoonYap is of Chinese descent. She began violin lessons by the age of four. By the age of 11, the artist entered into the Mount Royal Conservatory Of Music.

Through “The Fun Machine”, Foonyap expresses the notion of free-will in a relationship. Indeed, the song emphasized how out of fear, humans are able to both hurt and love one another. The song further explores this point through indicating that one feels vulnerable when in love, which leads to a programmed human defense system jumping in, and interfering with the possibility of true love.

This song is taken off an upcoming album, “Palimpsest“, whose release is set on October 21. As written in the press release:

A “palimpsest” is a manuscript in which traces of the original can still be found – FOONYAP’s latest album is a raw and unguarded reflection of her tumultuous journey to self-discovery through her painful past. A hauntingly beautiful blend of folk and electronic that incorporates her Chinese heritage, each song captures various components of her former and present realities, be it through dark soundscapes that mirror anxious longing, or powerful electronic rifts that reflect challenging life transitions.
