Sabrina Teitelbaum AKA Blondshell has released a new song, ‘Veronica Mars’.

The track is the LA-based musician’s first release on Partisan Records, following three self-released singles – ‘Olympus’, ‘Kiss City’, ‘Sepsis’ – and the recent Spotify Single, ‘Cartoon Earthquake’.

“I was obsessed with the [US teen drama] show ‘Veronica Mars’ as a kid and I was revisiting it around the time I wrote this song,” she recalls. “I wanted to sing about that childhood era when I was being exposed to a lot more than I was comfortable with. ‘Gimme shelter’ refers to the song but I’m also saying please give me shelter from graphic TV and film, from New York City, overwhelming lyrics, etc.”

Blondshell concludes: “I think the song is just about having my boundaries crossed and the effects of those transgressions (for example, growing up to think men are hot if they’re assholes).”
