Wallice has shared a new single, ‘Funeral’.
The track is taken from forthcoming EP ’90s American Superstar’, which is set for release on Friday (6th May) via Dirty Hit.
Charing her own rise and fall as a fictional celebrity idol, it comes ahead of an appearance at The Great Escape later on this month, plus her first London headline show on 17th May at The Lexington.
The last track on the EP, Wallice explains: “‘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. 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.”
