Wallice has released a new single and video, ‘Little League’.
It’s an early taster from her upcoming second EP, which is set for release this spring via Dirty Hit accompanied by her first London headline show, on 17th May at The Lexington.
“Little League is about my love of games (board and video) and my competitiveness,” she explains. “I also think people can relate to the fear of not being liked. I can hang out with a single friend for 5 days straight, and still each time they leave I feel like- “oh no, they probably hate me because of something silly like being too competitive during a video game. This song was influenced by “Weird Fishes/ Arpeggi” by Radiohead, a band I grew up listening to.”
Of the video, she adds: “I immediately reached out to director Philip Stilwell when I came up with a concept for this video. He did such an amazing job when we had previously worked on my ‘Hey Michael’ video last year. I knew he could execute the right balance of serious and funny within a short video. I knew I wanted to be playing tennis, baseball, and a board game in the video, but he came up with the idea of translating the board game to real life – when we land on each space it launches a mini game (kind of like my favorite video game Mario Party). I’m so happy with how the video turned out and I’m so glad I got to have my fellow artist friends Mykey, spill tab, mazie, and my long time producer/best friend marinelli playing my worthy opponents in the video. I like to write about being an imperfect protagonist; being someone who is wrong and lets their faults show. I hope that comes through here as well.”
