Wallice has shared a new song, ‘Funeral’, the latest offering from her upcoming EP 90s American Superstar. The single follows previous cuts ‘Little League’ and the title track, and you can give it a listen below.
“‘Funeral’ is a spin on the usual emotions and celebrations (or lack thereof) at a funeral– shifting the view to make it more like a concert,” Wallice explained in a statement. “It’s taking the EP’s “larger than life” concept of being a celebrity (or at least trying to) and having this funeral be a massive party. I talk about having a pregame for the funeral, an open bar, a camera crew and rocking and rolling. This is my favourite song I’ve ever written. We tracked live trombone, saxophone, flute, trumpet, I played cello, and then my guitarist Callaghan Kevany recorded an insane guitar solo at the end. It’s a marriage of my classical and jazz roots with the rock sound that I’ve grown into. I want people to dance to this song and have fun. Even though it’s a song about death, I don’t think it necessarily feels that way. Maybe we should shift the perspective of funerals to not be so sad.”
