Tiga performs during the Pandora Discovery Den SXSW on March 16, 2016 in Austin, Texas.
Canadian artist Tiga has delivered a head-spinning new house single called "Woke" that enlists eerie tones, nimble percussion and a monotonous topline.

"'Woke' is a song about freedom, specifically my freedom," Tiga states on SoundCloud. "About me, at the end of the earth, pushed towards a final act of emancipation: throwing my phone into the sea, and watching it sink."

A jazzy saxophone riff emerges about three-quarters of the way in, creating an enticing dynamic between its freeform style and the track's hypnotic foundation.
