EP Review Wallice - ‘90s American Superstar

An EP that condemns as much as it builds castles in a cloudy, LA-bright sky.

Wallice - ‘90s American Superstar

‘90s American Superstar’ is precisely what you’d expect from its deadpan, dream-weaving title. Wallice is exploring her hypothetical future fame sharply and sardonically, with equal parts idealistic anticipation and ironic apprehension. ‘Rich Wallice’, the EP’s slyest dig at fame and materialism, is also its most compelling, with an ominous, opulent electro backdrop. For the most part, though, it’s suitably sunny, be it through the mellow melodies of ‘Little Leagues’, or the buoyancy of the title track. Even closer ‘Funeral’ is ethereal and laidback. It’s unsettlingly relaxed and blithely casual, and a seamless closer for an EP that condemns as much as it builds castles in a cloudy, LA-bright sky.
