Wallice has shared her latest single, ’90s American Superstar’, the title track to her forthcoming second EP. Check out a visual for it below.
“‘90s American Superstar’ is about a fictional relationship in which my partner is showing very LA ‘dating a musician’ type behaviour. It’s kind of a part two to the saga from a track on my last EP called ‘Hey Michael’,” Wallice said in a statement. “The chorus makes it sort of a breakup song, and the verses make it a diss track. The first verse has six 90s movie references, and looks inwards at a breakup and what I did wrong. The second verse is blaming the other person – so it’s kind of a rollercoaster of emotions. The chorus is very lighthearted, and I think the tone of the “la la la’s” is important in showing a devil-may-care attitude – not knowing what to feel or do and just going with it.”
90s American Superstar, the follow-up to Wallice’s 2021 debut EP Off the Rails, arrives on May 6 via Dirty Hit. “The EP is a hypothetical look into the celebrity life that lots of musicians and the LA entertainment industry crowd seeks. It’s fun to think about, “what if I was famous?” and how fame can change people,” Wallice explained. “Especially since I grew up in LA– I love it here, but it’s a strange place and it can feel like everyone is just looking for their big break. To me, the EP plays with that perspective and the way people think about that dream. By exploring the idea of fame, I think the EP is a fun way of saying everyone is human. We all have aspirations, bad qualities and egos, but even if you’re famous (which by the way– I’m not in any way), that doesn’t make you better or worse than someone who isn’t.”
