Slush Puppy

King Krule

Slush Puppy Lyrics

[Verse: Okay Kaya, King Krule, & Both]
Don't you dare baby, dare baby, dare
Face me already, replace me already
Nothing's working with me
Nothing's working with me
Don’t you dare baby, dare baby, dare
Face me already, replace me already
Don’t be scared, don’t be scared, don’t be scared
Deface me already

I’m a waste, baby
And I’m alone
So you come over
I’m down under sea
I’m down under
Nothing's working with
Me, nothing’s working
With me
I’m this worthless you see
Nothings working with me
Nothings working with me
Nothings working with me

About “Slush Puppy”

“Slush Puppy”, the fourth track from The OOZ, is a song that embodies the loneliness and frustration surrounding a past relationship.

The lyrics derive from a poem that Archy wrote prior to this song.

It marks the first collaboration between Norwegian singer-songwriter, Okay Kaya, and Archy Marshall.

The song escalates intensity as it progresses; it’s subtle yet continues to emphasize the pain that Krule feels.

It was released with the album in October of 2017 and was produced by Dill Harris, a musical facilitator, producer, recording engineer, mixer, remixer and artist based in east London, and Archy himself.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    During an interview with Gilles Peterson on BBC Radio 6, Archy said:

    [Okay Kaya] is reading a poem that I wrote about this girl that I was with last year. There was a moment I was in bed with her and I was kinda lucid and that was a lot of white noise in my brain and I just wrote about that. And I got her to read it because I liked her kind of broken English. And also I was playing with the idea that the listener has to focus more on the tonality and texture of a voice rather than maybe what it’s saying.


    Archy told Pigeons & Planes about how his collaboration with Okay Kaya came about:

    She was working with a few people that I knew at the time. She was just coming up—people who had done videos for me like Jamie-James Medina were putting me on to her… I spent one night with her in London where we went out and had a super weird night. We went to this party in the middle of a park. I got kicked out. Then I got her to send me her lyrics a capella.
    That’s her voice pitched down. Because she’s not really there. So basically, instead of doing an obvious collaboration, she just sent me something, and I was like, alright you’re sending it to me now, so now it’s… kind of mine. [Laughs] I just pitched it down for the key and she became a genderless thing.
