Boudica is proud to present their first record of 2024, featuring an artist who holds a special place within the platform — none other than DJ and producer Wallis.
The EP’s opening track, “Hell is a Girl from Before (Rainy Summer Mix),” blends emotional melodies with synths and a plucked instrument, transitioning into energetic drum-driven segments. Almost imperceptible vocals add intimacy, maintaining a steady pace that evokes a rainy summer day. This creates a melancholic yet hopeful mood, taking listeners on a journey of introspection.


Protect Me From My Friends” transports listeners to a new dimension with robotic sounds and raw emotions driven by a relentless bassline. Clear vocals guide the journey, interrupted by the dominant bassline.
Sleeping Pills Are Gone” begins with a gloomy introduction, interrupted by an evolving acid bassline. The track features haunting vocal repetition and strategic breaks, creating a powerful crescendo and a hypnotic trance with a solid four-to-the-floor rhythm.
The EP closes with “Teenage Apocalypse,” featuring a clunky melody and characteristic vocals. The track transitions into a powerful breakbeat, driven by drums and an impeccable bassline, evoking an intense day of judgment and leaving a lasting impact.
This EP  is a testament to Wallis’s growth as a producer and her fantastic storytelling ability through sound

In the artist’s words: “Sometimes life takes a weird turn. Angry, confused and dealing with moral: this EP targets the pain and absurdity of attachment and strongly themes Gregg Araki’s teenage apocalypse trilogy. The artwork poem plastered on the wall was written by wallis.”
