Wise recently spoke with The New York Times about releasing her music through the rapidly growing company – Stem – as it helps her maintaincontrol and minimizing any disruption to creativity “.  The Feminine Act: II is the follow up to the singer’s much acclaimed 2016 debut EP, The Feminine: Act I.Both projects have a spiritual core and production richness, coupled with lyrics that celebrate womanhood with a powerful feminist stance. Where The Feminine: Act I leaned more to showcasing carefully crafted pop elements, The Feminine Act: II boasts many tracks that have an airy, soulful R&B groove.

Praise for “Coconuts”The Feminine: Act II

“The Feminine: Act I, which offered a quick glimpse into the ups and downs of womanhood. With her forthcoming EP, The Feminine: Act II, Wise treads a similar road, presenting a lucid set of dream-pop and R&B designed to uplift the masses.” –

NPR

 

“She’s [Wise] becoming a main-stage attraction in her own right. ‘Coconuts,’ the first single from her upcoming album The Feminine: Act II, retains the pop/R&B elements of her previous album, The Feminine: Act I, it also builds upon them with laid-back jazz undertones.” – Pitchfork
“The aptly named The Feminine: Act II, Wise leans into spindly R&B and airy jazz, like on lead single ‘Coconuts.'”-
Stereogum
“The visuals synchronizes perfectly with the rising synths and warm brass of the song [‘Coconuts’] itself, reflecting the harmony experienced on set between the women.” – Consequence of Sound
“The self-directed video synchronizes perfectly with the rising synths and warm brass of the song itself, and sees Wise joined by several other women for an interpretative dance routine. Instantly iconic.” –
Wonderland Magazine
