The music couple 8Ö8 - Shöckface and ero808 have just delivered their first single of 2023 HEADSHÖT, a song directly aimed at the corrupt side of the entertainment industry. HEADSHÖT combines the gritty and glitchiness we best know Shöckface for alongside ero808’s hypnotic vocals into an electronic rap heater. Metaphorically fighting off industry demons and the desire to expose the industry that wants to exploit your soul takes prominence within the message behind HEADSHÖT.
When speaking about the creative process behind the inception of HEADSHÖT, ero808 of 8Ö8 said “I was in the middle of getting ripped off by a label, fighting with my management, and losing my mind when Shöckface sent me this song to mess with. I was upset, paranoid, and I was losing trust in the business side of the music industry.” With Shöckface saying “Sonically the song was inspired by the highs and lows of being in the music industry. The song is one of my favorite records to date because of how symbolic it is to me. Before meeting Erik I felt like an outsider, now I truly believe we were destined to meet to create something much bigger than music…” 8Ö8 leaves no remorse as they sing they have “no patience for no greedy sons of a b*tches and when I'm at the top I ain't gone’ show you no forgiveness.” HEADSHÖT is the 3rd single since the groups debut release of QÜICKSAND last October.
