Today, LA's Suzie True have announced their signing to Buzz Records for their debut EP, Nothing To You. The self-described "sad girl pop" band began as the bedroom project of songwriter Lexi Mccoy before expanding to a full band earlier this year, and have been playin around California with artists likeSheer Mag, Lisa Prank and Blushh.
They will be releasing this first EP on October 26th, and today have shared the first single from the record, "Don't Grow Up." Described by Earmilk as "a cross between 'Where Eagles Dare' by the Misfits and 'Primpsoll Punks' by Alvvays," the track is a propulsive garage pop gem about ignoring the pressures of the outside world, accompanied by a video shot in the boy band section of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
"I wrote "Don't Grow Up" because I felt like a lot of my friends were growing up, and graduating college and getting grown up jobs and I’m still here, playing music and skateboarding and sometimes I wonder if I should just give up and start doing the things they're doing," says Mccoy. "I feel like that in relationships too sometimes, but what I want is a partner who will be immature with me and be ok with the fact that I want to take a more unconventional life path, and I don’t necessarily want the things I’m supposed to want.
“For the video we went to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which is one of the most disgusting places I’ve ever been in my life. When you’re there people will lie down next to the star that they want to take a picture with, which is just so gross to me, so I thought if I put whipped cream all over New Kids on The Block’s star and then ate it that would be a really awful thing that I shouldn’t do, but that made me think it might be a good idea so I did it. That whole section of the walk is boy bands, and I love boy bands...probably because I haven't grown up.”
