Flohio Returns With Brand New Single / Video “cuddy Buddy”

One of the UK’s most vital young voices, FLOHIO returns today with a first taste of new music this year with “Cuddy Buddy”.

This latest single marks the beginning of a fresh chapter for the South-London MC,  who has won praise across the board for her intelligent rhymes, natural flow and seamless weaving together of genres, ranging far and wide from leftfield electronic, to rock, hip-hop and grime.  

This melancholic and introspective opening gambit once again proves what a singular and unmatched talent FLOHIO is. Sombre piano tones and wavering synthesisers provide the backbone to this raw and wistful new single; expansive and lyrically potent in true FLOHIO fashion, she is forever-building upon the blueprints of UK rap and hip-hop, leading the charge into uncharted territories. “Cuddy Buddy” boasts an undeniably infectious chorus-line, overdriven guitars and soaring pads provide additional melodic layers to the lugubrious hook.

FLOHIO details the story behind the latest single -

"Have you ever been at a point where you feel your energy being drained, because that was me, I was at a stage where I felt my energy being drained and Cuddy Buddy was me expressing how mentally tired I was. We captured the hook on the first day, but the verses I wanted it to be impactful so I kept coming back to it months after.”


“Cuddy Buddy” features production credits from long-standing collaborators God Colony, industrial hip-hop tastemakers and the brains behind early FLOHIO instrumentals “Fight” and ‘SE16”. The accompanying “Cuddy Buddy” video, shot entirely on film and directed by Petr Simons, is the perfect visual accompaniment.  Beautifully cinematic with brooding wide-angle shots setting the scene,  the viewer is taken on a surrealist ride, with FLOHIO adorned with a crown of burning candles, exercising her trademark experimental flows amidst haunting forest tree-lines and off-kilter set designs.

After igniting minds with her high octane performance of “Bands” on COLORS, FLOHIO continued to cement her status with released a series of barnstorming singles,  leading her to 2020’s acclaimed mixtape “No Panic, No Pain”, a visceral statement that equally gave platform to her relentless experimentation and unmatched dexterity across its ten tracks. Alongside further accolades from the likes of the BBC’s ‘Sound Of’,  Dazed 100 and Naomi Campbell in her “10 Rising Female Stars Reimagining Our Future” for British Vogue,  FLOHIO has become one of the most in-demand voices in contemporary UK music, having worked with diverse talents ranging from The Streets to Clams Casino and German electronic pioneers Modeselektor.

“Cuddy Buddy” is just the first puzzle piece in what will be a career defining year for FLOHIO,  watch this space for more.
