Following a batch of exciting offerings over the last few months, The Linda Lindas have now announced their plans for their debut studio album 'Growing Up', which is set to be released on the 8th April via Epitaph Records.
The new full-length is being previewed by the record's title-track, which comes accompanied by a brilliant Humberto Leon-directed video, the co-founder of fashion brand Opening Ceremony and owner of Los Angeles restaurant CHIFA.
Speaking about the new visuals, Leon said, “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.”
