She's the quirky firecracker from Sydney who has been creeping up the sidelines of the scene for a hot minute, now Australian Fijian Thraxxy returns with a new single dripping with confidence, sauce and a candy-flip of grim cheeky lyrics on 'Smoke, Liquor' produced Hazy.
Armed with two bottles of vodka and bad orange juice, 'Smoke, Liquor' is filled with thick heavy beats and is about people working hard to make a living to only spend it on things that get them to the grave quicker.
On the single, Thraxxy said, "Art is an imitation of life - So all nighters and no money definitely had a heavy influence on the track,"
"Seeing people go out and spend more than what I would make in a week on just one night out and then somehow managing to adjust back into the reality of work or parent mode, only to repeat it over and over again seemed like a weird concept once you sit back and think about it. We work to live and reward ourselves with things that could potentially kill us,"
Flawlessly showcasing her finesse, and standing over 6ft tall. Thraxxy's acid tongue, heavily tattooed limbs and abrasive performance style sets her above the rest. She's known to slaughter music barriers, fusing all things dark, gloomy and grim with electronic hip-hop and heavy trap beats.
Earning her stripes opening for such artists as 'Tech N9ne' and 'Bone Thugs and Harmony' as one half of the dynamic brother sister duo 'Bustacap', Thraxxy is back armed with witty one liners and sticky hooks leaving you craving more.
Question: How would you describe your music?
Thraxxy: Music to pre-drink and party to.
Question: Which is your favourite song to perform live and why?
Thraxxy: Snickers is always a fun one, it's very cheeky and loaded with witty one liners.
Question: If you could have anyone, in the world, attend a show, who would it be?
Thraxxy: I've narrowed it down to two: John Waters and Quentin Tarantino.
Question: Do you prefer performing live or recording?
Thraxxy: Both are such different vibes… Recording is a laid back therapy session - with the later anxieties of waiting to hear if what you spent hours recording made any sense.
Performing is hours of pent up anxiety leading up to a show, with a burst of adrenaline, hoping that what you sang made any sense.
Question: What motivates you most when writing music?
Thraxxy: Everything I write about is real life experiences: depression, social alienation, booze and my love for men. I wish I could write about Gucci and fast cars, but I don't have money...
Question: Which music/artists are you currently listening to?
Thraxxy: Leikeli47, Quay Dash and She Past Away.
Question: What or who was your inspiration to go into the music industry?
Thraxxy: Revenge, years ago I was seeing someone briefly who told me: "You could never do what I do" - MySpace rapper (laughs), I ended up opening for his favourite rapper.
Question: If you could collaborate with another artist, who would it be?
Thraxxy: Danny Brown, El-P or Le1f.
Question: Did you have any pre-conceived ideas about the music industry?
Thraxxy: I think any pre-conceived ideas I once had about the music industry are rapidly changing. Social media is such a great tool, making it easier for independent artists to have a voice, be seen and get their work out there.
Women in hip hop are grabbing the bull by the horns, stepping up and taking over.
Question: What's a typical day like?
Thraxxy: Usually I wake up to a bulldog licking my face, marinate my face in 3kg of makeup and spend the rest of the day at the tattoo studio, working as a laser tech. I basically get paid to blast bad tattoos, specialising in Soundcloud rappers.
Question: What has been your favourite part of becoming a music artist?
Thraxxy: I've always used writing as a therapeutic tool, I over analyse absolutely everything and my thoughts and ideas rollercoaster a lot.
When someone tells me they connect to something I've written or can relate to a feeling I had while writing a particular song, everything seems worth it in the end.
Question: Can you tell us 5 things required for a happy healthy and enjoyable life?
