Los Angeles-based, all-female punk band The Linda Lindas share a video for their new single “Talking To Myself,” from their highly anticipated debut album Growing Up. The black and white Ryan Baxley-directed video is a playful tribute to the classic Twilight Zone episode “Living Doll.” nYah_JGyYSg
Of the song, the band’s Lucia de la Garza says “The song is about the spiral you go into when you're lonely. You start to question yourself and all the decisions you've made. I'm always looking back on conversations and going "Oh, I should have said this, I should have said that". But it's also about needing other people, not just for reassurance, but because we've all learned from the pandemic that you need other people to talk to in order to stay sane.”
Last month, The Linda Lindas announced their debut album with an Humberto Leon-directed video for its title track “Growing Up,” which Rolling Stone praised as “catchy and danceable,” saying “you can imagine teenagers screaming it from car windows on the last day of classes” and SPIN called it a “coming of age, punk rock classic." To celebrate the album announcement, the band performed the song on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
The Linda Lindas will play headline shows in Los Angeles at The Troubadour on April 10th and New York City at the Mercury Lounge on May 1st - both shows sold out immediately. They also have U.S. dates opening for Jawbreaker in the spring, and festivals in Oakland, Las Vegas, and Japan.
