New York-based artist Computerwife blends elements of shoegaze, emo, and lo-fi noise pop for a unique and enthralling sound.

Computerwife, the moniker of New York-based artist Addie Warncke, today announced her self-titled debut album set for release on August 4th, 2023, via Danger Collective Records. Culled from the album, the lead single, ‘Lexapro,’ is a unique and captivating take on Sonic Youth’s ‘Little Trouble Girl.’

“‘Lexapro’ was made when I was back with my parents over the first summer of school,” explains Warncke. “I had tried to stay in New York and pay rent as a freshman, but I was not used to making that much money and being under that much pressure. On top of that, most of my friends went back home for the summer so I felt super alone and could only interact with people by going to shows or meeting strangers on the internet. Back home, I started working at my old job, and I would walk 45 minutes to get there. I was really sad and felt like a failure. When I heard the song ‘Little Trouble Girl’ by Sonic Youth for the first time, I started playing it over and over during my walks to work. I recreated the drums and then tried to write a song that sounded similar. Originally, it was only made with an acoustic guitar and my computer, as I was inspired by how Alex G produced some of his own work.”

‘Lexapro’ is out today. Computerwife is out August 4th, 2023, via Danger Collective Records.
