Wallice Shares New Single + Video “23”

West Coast indie pop meets Gen Z existential dread in the second output from newcomer Wallice. In a world of highlight reels, hustle culture, and collective burnout, the LA singer-songwriter’s new single “23” emerges as a tongue-in-cheek contemplation on the urgency to come of age. “23” follows Wallice’s debut track “Punching Bag,” an instantly relatable lo-fi anthem on unrequited friendship. The track gained immediate support from the likes of Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 and Steve Lamacq on BBC 6Music and top placement on Spotify’s ‘Lorem’ playlist, with the Sunday Times Culture calling it “An organ-drenched, lo-fi indie-pop delight.”

Through a series of witty, self-effacing refrains, “23” sees Wallice lament her life’s choices. She’s trapped somewhere between a premature nostalgic mourning for her youth – “tell me what is wrong with me, I miss my Ohio fake ID” – and delusions that turning a year older will bring her stability – “Maybe I’ll get married soon, and buy a house with three bedrooms, and settle down, and get a dog, and make my partner get a job.” The track comes accompanied by a video which perfectly illustrates these frustrations, directed by Taylor Fitzgerald.
