At this point if you haven’t heard of the The Linda Lindas, honestly, I’m not sure you can be forgiven. Alright, all jesting aside, the young, all-female punk band has all but set the world on fire since their moment-defining performance of “Racist, Sexist Boy”.
Having signed with Epitaph (which had been in the works before their explosive rise), the band aren’t slowing down in the least. Today, they’ve released their latest single, the jagged, ecstatically fun “Oh!”.
The song features in the trailer for the approaching Netflix series, The Chair, starring Sandra Oh, who plays a woman navigating the pitfalls of having been selected as the first female Chair of English at a prestigious university.
Speaking on the song itself, The Lindas share, “‘Oh!’ is one of the first songs we collaborated on during the pandemic, masked and distanced on the front porch. It started with the main riff and progression Bela brought to the band. Eloise wrote the verses and Lucia and Mila wrote the choruses. The song deals with trying to help out someone and having it blow up in your face.“
The track comes complete with a blast of a video directed by Ryan Baxley (Best Coast and much more). Otherwsie, check out “Oh!” on streaming platforms.
