Cardiknox, the Los Angeles pop duo of Lonnie Angle and Thomas Dutton, returned today with their first new music since their 2016 debut album Portrait, the dynamic new single “Fuck With You.” W Magazine, who premiered the track, call it “a frothy romp, a buoyant, club-ready track that bears a striking resemblance to early Charli XCX jams.”
“Every once in a while, a band comes along whose members have such strong synergy, it becomes infectious… Cardiknox is one of those bands.” – Nylon
“Millennial-friendly synthpop.” – Billboard
“Their sound is high spirited, inviting, ripe with movement and relatable lyrics, and it doesn’t fit into any particular box.” – Glamour
“Icy electro beats and massive dancefloor hooks.” – Spin
More on Cardiknox:
After releasing their debut full-length album Portrait, recorded at Henson Studios with Grammy award-winning producer John Shanks, pop duo Cardiknox – made up of singer Lonnie Angle and multi-instrumentalist Thomas Dutton – hit the road on four national tours (alongside Carly Rae Jepsen, The Knocks, and Phoebe Ryan) as well as festivals like Bonnaroo and the mainstage of Entertainment Weekly‘s inaugural PopFest. Having earned a reputation from the likes of Vogue and Billboard as producing massive dance-floor hooks and infectious live synergy, Cardiknox returns with their new single “Fuck With You,” a fearless, chest-pounding pop anthem.
Produced by rising stars Teal & Omega (Daya, Gwen Stefani, Panic! At the Disco, Christina Aguilera), “Fuck With You” elevates Cardiknox’s sound to new heights. “Sometimes being in love is intense. And wonderful and hard and unexplainable. And no matter what bullshit life and people are throwing at you, it’s really only about you and that other person. None of the other noise matters. That’s what ‘Fuck With You’ is about,” says Angle. “We wanted you to feel that message almost louder than hearing it in the lyric.” Named by People Magazine as breakout musicians of 2016, it’s no question that “Fuck With You” will make 2017 the year to truly define Cardiknox.
