In May, we reported on The Linda Lindas, four young women who blew the roof off the Los Angeles Public Library with their high-energy set. Now signed with Epitaph Records, they released their first major label single “Oh!“
In keeping with their DIY aesthetics, they painted their own set. Via Dazed:
“Oh!” is their first song on the label, a track that harnesses the same riot grrrl energy of their viral cut, and arrived with a colourful video featuring a backdrop handpainted by them and skateboarder and photographer Ray Barbee. It’s one of the first songs they collaborated on during the pandemic, the band say, “masked and distanced on the front porch”.
“It started with the main riff and progression Bela brought to the band. Eloise wrote the verses and Lucia and Mila wrote the choruses. The song deals with trying to help out someone and having it blow up in your face.”
Their viral song “Racist, Sexist Boy” is set to pass one million views this summer:
