With her eagerly-awaited new EP just days away, Wallice has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming collection.
The new single 'Funeral' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Ali Scharf, and follows on from the previously shared 'Little League' and the title-track in previewing her new EP '90s American Superstar', which is out on the 6th May via Dirty Hit.
Speaking about the new offering, she said, “‘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. 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.”
