CHLOE MORIONDO – SUCKERPUNCH

Rising star Chloe Moriondo has announced new album SUCKERPUNCH, arriving October 7 via Public Consumption/Fueled By Ramen. Working with producers/co-writers including Oscar Scheller (Rina Sawayama, PinkPantheress, Charli XCX), David Pramik (Machine Gun Kelly, Oliver Tree), and Teddy Geiger (Caroline Polachek, Olivia O’ Brien), SUCKERPUNCH signals a new era for Moriondo and marks a bold leap forward from the understated indie-pop and jittery pop-punk of her 2021 offering, Blood BunnySUCKERPUNCH is available for preorder now (album art/tracklisting below).

The news is heralded by the release of first single Fruity, a sticky-sweet summer anthem primed for ecstatic screaming along. Fruity arrives alongside a bright, colorful video that finds Chloe transforming a drab office into a super fruity party. Directed by Raoul Gonzo, the Fruity music video is streaming on Chloe’s official YouTube channel now.

Expanding on SUCKERPUNCH and the new single, Moriondo adds, Fruity and this album in general are going to be a slap in the fucking face!! I liked the idea of naming the album for something that means an unexpected hit something you never saw coming. It means the world to me to have the creative means to explore different shiny sounds and work with people I love so dearly on a project that is so new and exciting for me.

In celebration of the record, Chloe will head out on the SUCKERPUNCH tour this October, a U.S. fall headline run featuring support from Dreamer Isioma. The five-week trek kicks off October 12 in Columbus, OH, making stops at The Regent in Los Angeles on October 26 and Irving Plaza in New York City on November 10 before wrapping up with a hometown performance at The Majestic in Detroit, MI on November 19. Chloe is also slated to perform at this year’s Firefly Festival in Dover, DE. Tickets for all dates are available now (tour itinerary below). For up-to-date ticketing information, please visit HERE.

Earlier this summer, Moriondo was included in Billboard‘s prestigious 21 Under 21 list and shared Blood Bunny Deluxe, which included her long-awaited single and video Hell Hounds, alternate and acoustic versions of album tracks including a rendition of I Eat Boys featuring dodie original voice memos, and a studio version of Chloe’s early pandemic ballad, Living Virtually. In April, Chloe shared the puppy luv EP, a collection of canine-themed songs. The five-track collection was heralded by the charming, breezy single sammy, and accompanied by an official music video starring Moriondo’s own pet dog (the titular Sammy). UPROXX praised the wholesome track, while Billboard hailed it as a pure bump of joy. Consequence attested sammy is adorable and heartwarming. The puppy luv EP is available now via Public Consumption/Fueled By Ramen.

Willow Kayne – I DON’T WANNA KNOW

“Her irreverent lyricism and hip hop-infused beats and emo punk aesthetics make her a splash of cold water to the face as far as the pop landscape is concerned.” – Dazed

“A brilliantly chaotic sound” – i-D

“Gutsy and spiky-edged come to mind when digesting the alt-pop bops of Willow Kayne.” – The Line Of Best Fit

“The Gen Z talent links together huge opposing forces, creating her own potent brand of rebel-pop.” –  Clash 

After capturing imaginations with her rabble-rousing, genre-fluid debut single “Two Seater” back in May, London-via-Bristol superstar in waiting Willow Kayne has returned with a brand new single “I Don’t Wanna Know.”

Teaming up with UK hitmaker Oscar Scheller, “I Don’t Wanna Know” takes all of the attitude Willow has become synonymous with and ramps it up to 11 – taking cues from the old school rave culture that she is obsessed with by sticking a middle finger up to trolls over a drum & bass indebted backing. Inspired by the very real online abuse Willow received on TikTok, it’s a high energy example of just how unpredictable a talent Willow is, and how easy she makes it look; the track is packed with hilarious one-liners that cut those who have bullied her online to size. “I Don’t Wanna Know” is an empowering anthem that deals with real life Gen Z issues with a sense of confidence that feels so refreshing in the landscape of pop today.

Buy/Stream “I Don’t Wanna Know” here.

The track’s visual builds on Willow’s own postmodern sense of creation with a surreal take on the track’s subject matter. Directed by Bedroom (Beabadoobee, Arlo Parks, Sports Team), the video finds Willow falling victim to online trolls (also played by herself) before flying through cyberspace to learn that success is the best revenge, all in Willow’s own cartoonish, singular vision.

The video comes alongside the news that Willow has been nominated for the Rising Star award at this year’s Ivor Novello awards. Alongside the nomination, Willow has been paired in a mentorship scheme with legendary songwriter Nile Rodgers ahead of the ceremony on September 21st 2021.

Watch the “I Don’t Wanna Know” music video here.

A bracingly vivid look into the creative mind of one of 2021’s most fiercely uncompromising pop talents, “I Don’t Wanna Know” is the perfect example of Willow Kayne’s powers. Weaving relatable stories amongst high-energy unpredictable sonics, Willow is still breathing new life into a scene that’s been without anarchy and spontaneity for years, and in her hands, the future of pop will be anything but boring.

Willow Kayne shares high-energy single – I Don’t Wanna Know

Please meet UK pop provocateur Willow Kayne, who has shared her new single “I Don’t Wanna Know” today. Listen here at all DSPs.

After releasing a slew of independent singles, Willow signed with Sony this year and released her major label debut single “2 Seater” just a few months back to buzz and acclaim, even receiving early love from BBC Radio 1. Now, the 19 year old is throwing her hat in the ring as one of the most vivid, genre-blurring pop provocateurs in music today. A keen visual artist with influences as far-reaching as fashion design giant Nigo and production mastermind Pharrell, she pools together the most lucid touchpoints of all her inspirations to build a sound as diverse as her creative palette. Willow can trace this eclecticism directly back to her childhood, being raised by a hip-hop and house-obsessed father and a mother who produced videos for the likes of Erasure and the Prodigy. James Brown, Nas, and MF DOOM were all significant early influences, and soon she was making her own musical discoveries, falling hard for artists as diverse as Tyler The Creator, the Sex Pistols, Gorillaz, and Portishead.

Teaming up with UK hitmaker Oscar Scheller, “I Don’t Wanna Know” takes all of the attitude Willow has started to become synonymous with and ramps it up to 11 – taking cues from the old school rave culture that she is obsessed with by sticking a middle finger up to trolls over a drum & bass indebted production. It’s a high energy example of just how unpredictable a talent Willow is, and how easy she makes it look; the track is packed with hilarious one-liners that cut those who have bullied her online to size. An empowering anthem that deals with real life issues with a sense of confidence that feels refreshing in the landscape of pop today. The official video, along with a debut project and a HUGE announcement are all coming soon…

“…the artists that stick out from the pack are always those who are willing to switch things up, and quite clearly, Kayne isn’t afraid to do so…” – Lyrical Lemonade

“The Gen Z talent links together huge opposing forces, creating her own potent brand of rebel-pop.” – Clash Magazine

“A sizzling rallying-call from the Bristol-based artist all about living your own life and doing your own thing, ‘Two Seater’ blends rap verses with 90s-tinged pop influences, resulting in an instantly catchy debut.” – DIY Magazine
