Los Angeles-based, all-female punk band The Linda Lindas have announced their forthcoming album Growing Up. The highly anticipated release is due out digitally on April 8 and on physical formats June 3 via Epitaph Records. Fans can pre-order the album here. Today, the band shares the title track “Growing Up,” written by vocalist/guitarist Lucia. Alongside the track, they release the music video directed by Humberto Leon, co-founder of fashion brand Opening Ceremony and owner of Los Angeles restaurant CHIFA. The video, completely shot on iPhone 13 Pro Max, features custom clothing from Rodarte & Batsheva, and eyewear from Warby Parker.
Humberto Leon on directing “Growing Up”:
“Directing my first video for The Linda Lindas was a dream come true because I love the message and voice the girls have, and I am a true fan. I was really inspired by the girl’s love of cats and wanted to take that to the next level and so the video is a conversation about turning points in their lives all being viewed through the gaze of their cats. It creates a narrative of whether the cats want to trade places with the girls or vice-a-versa.This video was extra special because I worked with the girls on designing the outfits with Batsheva, styling the looks with Rodarte and Warby Parker. The entire video was a collaboration between me and the girls. By shooting the video on iPhone 13 Pro Max, it created an intimacy with the video that felt like we were listening in on a day in the life of The Linda Lindas.”
Tomorrow night, The Linda Linda’s will perform on The Late Show With James Corden. To celebrate the album announcement and release of their video for “Growing Up,” The Linda Lindas will also host a live streaming mini-concert from Leon’s CHIFA restaurant in east LA on February 3rd. Fans can tune in at 6PM PST/ 9PM EST via Warby Parker’s Instagram to catch the show. The Linda Lindas will perform songs from their new album as well as previous releases. Tune in here. The band can also be seen discussing their new single and video with Zane Lowe for New Music Daily on Apple Music 1, now streaming.
