Alaska by way of Aotearoa fuzz-popper Skux has unleashed her latest single 'Kudis' (pronounced "cooties"), an infectious punk banger to get your day rolling with a cheerful slap on the back and a kick out the door. The sonic alter-ego of Ayisha Jaffer, Skux's new song comes along with a hyper-energetic video created by Matilda at Wolfpack Creative, in which the artist puts us through our paces with a brutally brisk aerobics workout, highlighting an eye-popping array of active wear in the bargain.

Before Skux recently set sail overseas, you may have caught the Indian party-punk artist playing at A Gathering in the Forest in Whanganui and Hamilton's Future City Festival, along with regular live outings at Tāmaki Makaurau's Whammy Bar and The Wine Cellar. Skux is currently bouncing around the globe performing with her band, and opened up about the motivational ideas behind 'Kudis', the first shot fired from an EP of the same name releasing in mid-August...

"I wanted to make something fun and relatable that all humans can enjoy. Kudis are a representation of literally anything you can think of that is infecting the masses or even you personally. It could be propaganda, fear, bad vibes, a toxic relationship, your own anxieties, or even a representation of literal epidemic outbreaks from mental health to the measles. Whatever it represents for you, take it and run with it. This song highlights the infection you have, pokes fun at the hysteria it causes, and asks people to see how silly it is to sit and fret over these Kudis and actually get up and take some action against it for a better life and an enhanced, 3D round earth."

Skux's 'Kudis' EP releases on Friday 23rd August.
