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 artist Wallice announces her debut EP Off the Rails due out later this summer. She has already released “23” & “Punching Bag.” Today her 3rd single “Hey Michael” comes out.

Wallice explains; “Hey Michael’ is a revenge anthem for anyone who has encountered a gaslighting, manipulative person. It’s what I wish I would have said to all the ‘Michael’s’ I have met in my life. It can be substituted by many names, we all know or have met a ‘Michael’ though. Somehow the world revolves around them and they just can’t catch a break, because they never do anything wrong and it’s usually your fault. You should have listened to your gut instinct and swiped left on this Michael. This isn’t a man-hating song, it’s just something many people can relate to. Sometimes it’s embarrassing to admit just how bad a friend, date, or romantic partner was and a lot of the time, I would just smile and laugh off stupid remarks but when I think back, I wish I had told them off. But at the same time, my persona in the song is not the best person either. I literally say “I think I want to start a fight, which one is your girlfriend?” The whole song is funny because I am so focused on how shitty Michael is that I don’t even think about how shitty I might be as well.”
