Speaking about the origin of the new song, Rina says, “’Hold the Girl’ was the first song I wrote for the record at the end of 2020–I had gone to therapy and had a revelation, so I decided to write this song…that was the start of it. I was crying before going into the studio to write about it.”

Along with the new single, Rina has announced her North American headline tour happening this November.

Multidimensional pop sensation Rina Sawayama shares the visuals for her new song “This Hell,” the lead single from her highly-anticipated sophomore album Hold The Girl due September 2nd via Dirty Hit.

Directed by Ali Kurr, the video for “This Hell” sees Rina making her way to a glamorous wedding ho-down and afterparty complete with white cowboy boots, a gaudy stretch limo, a choreographed dance down the aisle and lots of confetti.

Rina shares about filming the video, “It was amazing to get back together with director Ali Kurr (‘XS’, ‘Bad Friend’) for the video for ‘This Hell.’ We always like to tell engaging stories through film together so this one was about love and community in the face of hatred and dissent.”

LA-based musician Wallice shares another brilliant video for her latest single “Funeral.” The song is from her new 90s American Superstar EP via Dirty Hit where Wallice envisions herself as a fictional celebrity idol, charting her own rise and fall across five tracks.

She tells us “The video for “Funeral” was really important to me. It’s my favorite song that I’ve made so far. I pictured a concert-like celebration instead of a traditional solemn funeral, sort of taking the heaviness of a funeral and treating it lightly. In my videos I like to incorporate my lyrics in a literal way, but I also try to capture the tone of them as well. This video walks the line between melodramatic and sarcastic in a way that really captures my sense of humor.

The video is also more broadly a symbol for how I’m evolving as an artist– the “death” of cowgirl Wallice is meant to mark the end of that era and the beginning of the next.”

“‘Lies’ is about someone who built up my trust and destroyed it like a wrecking ball,” says frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie on the inspiration for track. “It caused trust issues for myself, but fortunately for me that person is no longer in my life. Once you do me wrong, you’re gone!”

LA-based musician Wallice shares her new single ‘Funeral’ today, the latest cut from her forthcoming EP, out this Friday May 6th via Dirty Hit.

On the 90s American Superstar EP, Wallice envisions herself as a fictional celebrity idol, charting her own rise and fall across five tracks.

“‘Funeral’ is a spin on the usual emotions and celebrations (or lack thereof) at a funeral– shifting the view to make it more like a concert. It’s taking the EP’s “larger than life” concept of being a celebrity (or at least trying to) and having this funeral be a massive party. I talk about having a pregame for the funeral, an open bar, a camera crew and rocking and rolling” says Wallice. “This is my favourite song I’ve ever written. We tracked live trombone, saxophone, flute, trumpet, I played cello, and then my guitarist Callaghan Kevany recorded an insane guitar solo at the end. It’s a marriage of my classical and jazz roots with the rock sound that I’ve grown into. I want people to dance to this song and have fun. Even though it’s a song about death, I don’t think it necessarily feels that way. Maybe we should shift the perspective of funerals to not be so sad.”

LA-based musician Wallice shares her new single “90s American Superstar” today, the title track from her forthcoming second EP, set for release on May 6th via Dirty Hit.

The indie pop wunderkind has swiftly become one of Gen Z’s most exciting new voices, known for her tongue-in-cheek, self-effacing anthems. On the 90s American Superstar EP, Wallice envisions herself as a fictional celebrity idol, charting her own rise and fall across five tracks.

Fresh from her recent US tour with Still Woozy, the new single is accompanied by a visualiser from her time on the road. The title track sees us introduced to the EP’s protagonist at the height of their fame, as they resent their lacklustre musician partner with classic refrains like “stop being so damn dramatic, you just got dropped from Atlantic”. Wallice explains; “‘90s American Superstar’ is about a fictional relationship in which my partner is showing very LA ‘dating a musician’ type behaviour. It’s kind of a part two to the saga from a track on my last EP called ‘Hey Michael’. The chorus makes it sort of a breakup song, and the verses make it a diss track. The first verse has six 90s movie references, and looks inwards at a breakup and what I did wrong. The second verse is blaming the other person – so it’s kind of a rollercoaster of emotions. The chorus is very lighthearted, and I think the tone of the “la la la’s” is important in showing a devil-may-care attitude – not knowing what to feel or do and just going with it.”

Today LA-based musician Wallice is dropping new music via her label home Dirty Hit (the 1975, Beabadoobee, Rina Sawayama.) The new track is “Little League.” Wallice is currently on tour in North America with Still Woozy, playing to sold out rooms across the US.

Wallice on the track, “Little League is about my love of games (board and video) and my competitiveness. I also think people can relate to the fear of not being liked. I can hang out with a single friend for 5 days straight, and still each time they leave I feel like- “oh no, they probably hate me because of something silly like being too competitive during a video game.” This song was influenced by “Weird Fishes/ Arpeggi” by Radiohead, a band I grew up listening to.

I immediately reached out to director Philip Stilwell when I came up with a concept for this video. He did such an amazing job when we had previously worked on my “Hey Michael” video last year. I knew he could execute the right balance of serious and funny within a short video. I knew I wanted to be playing tennis, baseball, and a board game in the video, but he came up with the idea of translating the board game to real life – when we land on each space it launches a mini game (kind of like my favorite video game Mario Party). I’m so happy with how the video turned out and I’m so glad I got to have my fellow artist friends Mykey, spill tab, mazie, and my long time producer/best friend marinelli playing my worthy opponents in the video. I like to write about being an imperfect protagonist; being someone who is wrong and lets their faults show. I hope that comes through here as well.”

Wolf Alice announces their newest album Blue Weekend out June 11 on Dirty Hit/RCA Records. Blue Weekend was produced by Markus Dravs.

The single “Last Man On Earth” is about “the arrogance of humans,” singer and guitarist Ellie Roswell said in a statement. “I’d just read Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle and I had written the line ‘Peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from god’ in my notes. But then I thought: ‘Uh, your peculiar travel suggestion isn’t a dancing lesson from god, it’s just a travel suggestion! Why does everything need to mean something more?’”
