Fresh from signing to Partisan Records, Blondshell - LA-based singer/songwriter Sabrina Teitelbaum - is sharing her first single with the label, ‘Veronica Mars’.
“I was obsessed with the [US teen drama] show ‘Veronica Mars’ as a kid and I was revisiting it around the time I wrote this song,” Blondshell explains. “I wanted to sing about that childhood era when I was being exposed to a lot more than I was comfortable with. ‘Gimme shelter’ refers to the song but I’m also saying please give me shelter from graphic TV and film, from New York City, overwhelming lyrics, etc. I think the song is just about having my boundaries crossed and the effects of those transgressions (for example, growing up to think men are hot if they’re assholes).”
Check out the accompanying video for ‘Veronica Mars’ below.
