When the news broke that PHFAT had parted ways as a duo it was unexpected and largely misreported that they had, "quit" altogether, but the truth is that Smooth Mike has continued with the name - moving it into a new sonic sphere. In between a national tour, interviews and studio time; the new single dropped as well. The Whip is where Mikhaela Faye comes into the equation. She is the foil character to Smooth Mike, bringing emotion to the denouement that is equal parts vulnerable and surly. I don't need to say very much about this composition because I believe that it speaks for itself. Of interest though is that there's a second song that has only been performed live thus far and holds the promise of an exciting new sound for PHFAT moving forward!
