“Hypnotic and captivating…the future for Rong is bright indeed” – The Line of Best Fit
“A fiercely independent artist in her own right…” – The Fader
“One of the strongest album openers in British music history, right now Fifi can do no wrong” – Complex (on Fifi’s contribution to Konnichiwa)
Hot on the heels of Fifi Rong’s triumphant SXSW 2017 showcases, including a packed-out show at the British Music Embassy, comes new single ‘The Same Road’, the follow-up to the acclaimed ‘Future Never Comes’.
‘The Same Road’ is set to be released 16 June 2017 via AWAL.

With strong support from publications such as The Fader, Clash, Notion and The 405, as well as BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music airplay, the London-based artist Fifi Rong, has clearly entered the mainstream consciousness.
The artist turned producer also celebrated her collaboration work, including contributions to Skepta’s Mercury Award-winning ‘Konnichiwa’, Tricky’s ‘False Idols’ and electro legends Yello’s new album ‘Toy’.
‘The Same Road’ was mixed by Max Dingel who has previously worked with Goldfrapp, The Killers, White Lies and Muse amongst others.
In keeping with her 80s-synth pop style, Fifi proves to be another hit with her unique, dark, futuristic sound.
“There is a world inside my solitude, which has been a blessing and a curse. ‘The Same Road’ falls into one of my recurring themes of such inherent paradox and emotional cocktail of vulnerability and strengths. There is a stark contrast between musically driven, upbeat energy and heavier lyrical content, reflecting my inner resistance of moving 3 steps forward and 2 steps back, and the determination to break through negative cycles.”
