On July 24, Arizona singer-songwriter Nic Pool will release his new single “R.K.F.," a dark pop-R&B coming of age anthem inspired by an early experience of betrayal growing up. "#RKF is a song about supernova-ing your life, escaping what's crushed you, and taking comfort and control in a getaway car," Nic says.

"R.K.F." is the second single to be released from his upcoming self-titled debut EP, Nic Pool, which is due 8/27, and follows lead single "Punk Rock & Ice Cream," released this June, which Complex UK called a "moody, soulful piece of electronica" that tells the tale of "those days spent trying to impress your crush with sweet treats and music you hope they'll think is cool." The four-track EP was co-written and produced by his partner Emmy Wildwood during quarantine at their home studio in Tucson.

Pool first arrived in 2018 with debut releases "The Falls” and “Rockets,” which earned playlist support from Spotify (Fresh Finds: Index; In Electric Dreams) and Amazon Music (Fresh Indie, Introducing Indie); plus features in i-D, Culture Collide, self-titled magazine, EARMILK, Kick Kick Snare, Disco Naivété, All Things Go, The Wild Honey Pie, PopMatters, Popdust and others. “The Falls” was also remixed by Daniel D’artiste (of Jaden and Willow Smith’s MSFTSRep collective) and JD Samson (Le Tigre, MEN).

Lyrics:

 

August was long

And I was gone

They were clever

They broke in my house

Took shots on my couch

Ripped up the stereo

They were pouring 'em good

And baby they stood

On the dark grass humming

Jump in the pool

Man were they cool

But oh were they howling

 

Rich kid fuckery (Ah)

One traffic light (Ah)

I drive all night (Ah)

And smoke out the window

Smoke out the window

 

August was long

And I was alone

I felt bitter

Tried to be strong

But that summer was cold

And I wanted to leave it

I was pouring 'em good

And baby I stood

On the black grass humming

Jump in the pool

Man were they cool

But oh were they howling

 

Rich kid fuckery (Ah)

One traffic light (Ah)

I drive all night (Ah)

And smoke out the window

Smoke out the window

 

Rich kid fuckery (Ah)

One traffic light (Ah)

I drive all night (Ah)

And smoke out the window

Smoke out the window

 

Rich kid fuckery

Boat shoes on the beach

Tipsy toxic teens

King's cup and chlorine

 

Rich kid fuckery (Mary Jane & me)

One traffic light (Oh baby)

I drive all night (Woah)

Smoke out the window (Mary Jane & me)

Smoke out the window (Oh baby)
