Los Angeles-based, all-female punk band The Linda Lindas have released a new single “Oh!” “’Oh!’ is one of the first songs we collaborated on during the pandemic, masked and distanced on the front porch,” recalls the band. “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.”
Along with the track, the band share their colorful and fun video directed by Ryan Baxley (Best Coast, The Regrettes, Charlie Hanson) featuring American skateboarder and photographer Ray Barbee. When coming up with the video concept the band worked backward from the single artwork featuring Polaroid photos of themselves and imagined a world where these photos come to life.
No word on an album yet but after signing with Epitaph Records back in May we are sure it is only a matter of time!
The track is featured in the trailer for the upcoming Netflix series “The Chair” starring Golden Globe winning actress, Sandra Oh. The Chair follows Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim (Oh) as she navigates her new role as the Chair of the English department at prestigious Pembroke University. Ji-Yoon is faced with a unique set of challenges as the first woman to chair the department, and as one of the few staff members of color at the university. Check out the trailer, HERE.
