Claire Chicha a.k.a. spill tab has dropped a brand new song called ‘PISTOLWHIP’. Following her debut EP Oatmilk last December, the LA-based, French-Korean songwriter’s latest arrives with a music video directed by frequent collaborator Jade Sadler and shot in the Californian desert. Check it out below.
“‘PISTOLWHIP is about going through something that really hurts, and the dichotomy of being angry but also being shot down and vulnerable,” spill tab explained in a statement. “I wanted to imagine what it’d be like in the head of someone who’s just finding out they’re being cheated on. They’re vacillating between pure rage and just wanting to hold on ’cause they love that person so deeply, and then the underlying issues of that relationship sort of start to show in the second verse. It’s just a descent into madness I guess.”
Of the video, she added: “It was SO fucking cold the day we shot PISTOLWHIP. It was like 22 degrees and I’m ripping around on a tiny dirt bike with only a scarf holding my titties together. Jade was such a trooper and was just getting it done and we had so many laughs. She also managed to make me look so badass on this little machine that was maxing out at like 20 mph. It was awesome.”
