Following this year’s singles slippery slope and I Love My Dog, phem has just shared another new tune: IKEA.

Inspired by the Swedish furniture giant as well as a failing relationship, phem explains of the track: “I was building a life with them and furniture. We went to IKEA several times and enjoyed every minute of it. We would always run into random friends, usually accompanied by their partners… shopping for things to make them feel adult and equipped to be in their first ‘real adult relationship’.

“Everyone in there is hopeful and ready for more… but the view is narrow. Playing house for the day and all the rooms make the future look so bright and easy. Yea… we passed the IKEA stress test, but we failed all the others.”
