ADD SUV, the second single off Booth newcomer Uffie‘s forthcoming debut set, may sound like a hedonistic, electro-informed dancefloor-scorcher, but in reality there’s more to it than meets the ear: those who listen closer will find that the lyrics the Parisian rapper/singer robotically intones over frequent Madonna collaborator Mirwais‘glossy synth backdrop are actually a mordant commentary on… uh, I’m not exactly sure. While it seems very likely that Uffie’s talk of behavioral disorders and gas-guzzling automobiles is intended as a satire of American culture, the message isn’t all that clear; in any case, the record’s club appeal should have most listeners grooving too hard to read too far into it. Topped off with the disoriented yet fresh guest bars of a well-cast Pharrell Williams, this track and much more can be found on Uffie’s forthcoming Sex, Dreams & Denim Jeans LP, due out May 31 via Ed Banger.
