The Linda Lindas have announced their debut album, Growing Up, which is due out April 8 via Epitaph. The Los Angeles-based band have previewed the record by sharing its title track, alongside a cat-filled video directed by Humberto Leon. Check it out below.
“Directing my first video for The Linda Lindas was a dream come true because I love the message and voice the girls have, and I am a true fan,” Leon said in a statement. “I was really inspired by the girl’s love of cats and wanted to take that to the next level and so the video is a conversation about turning points in their lives all being viewed through the gaze of their cats. It creates a narrative of whether the cats want to trade places with the girls or vice-a-versa. This video was extra special because I worked with the girls on designing the outfits with Batsheva, styling the looks with Rodarte and Warby Parker. The entire video was a collaboration between me and the girls. By shooting the video on iPhone 13 Pro Max, it created an intimacy with the video that felt like we were listening in on a day in the life of The Linda Lindas.”
After their performance of ‘Racist Sexist Boy’ at the Los Angeles Public Library went viral last spring, the Linda Lindas made their late-night debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. In July, they shared a new song called ‘Oh!’.
