Pageants Debut New Single “Just Tell Me”

Pageants (the Long Beach, CA-based duo of partners and bandmates Rebecca Coleman and Devin O’Brien) today premiered their new single “Just Tell Me”, alongside a video beautifully shot in the Joshua Tree desert by the band themselves. Coleman’s airy, stirring vocals float to the song’s powerful, grungy conclusion on the third single from their forthcoming album Sun and Settled Days (which has earned press support from Pitchfork, The Alternative, and more). “‘Just Tell Me’ is about the pitfalls and blind spots of a friendship that has long since passed its expiration date,” explains Coleman. “I wrote this at a time when I was struggling to look past the good times in a friendship—past my friend’s true potential—and just accept that they’d done me dirty for the last time.” Of the video, which reflects a sense of “magical desert renewal,” O’Brien adds: “It’s a visual representation of strength and independence, of newfound confidence and swag, all tinged with Western Cali charm.” Sun and Settled Days will be released on July 30th, 2021.
