Fresh from her appearance at DIY’s own stage at The Great Escape earlier this month, LA star Wallice has shared her new video for her scuzzy pop hit ‘Funeral’.
The track gets taken from her recently-released EP ’90s American Superstar’ - out now via Dirty Hit - while its accompanying video sees her teaming up with director Phil Stillwell for a clip that’s, well, a little on the grim side, ahem.
Speaking of the video, Wallice has said: “The video for ‘Funeral’ was really important to me. It’s my favourite 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 humour. 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.”
Check out the video for ‘Funeral’ below.
Wallice, PinkPantheress and the curiously-named Jealous Nostril also feature in this week’s round-up of new music.
It’s her first release since May’s EP ”90s American Superstar’.
It’s his first release since last year’s debut album.
