Blondshell Announces Signing To Partisan With New Single
Today, along with the announcement that she has signed to Partisan Records (IDLES, Beth Orton, Fontaines D.C.), Blondshell has released her newest single (and first for her new label), “Veronica Mars.” The single, an indie-rock banger propelled by a wall of wailing guitars, a perfect under-two-minute scorcher, is an ode to early-aughts-cult-TV and a subtly-stated depiction of how the media conditions us as kids, with Teitelbaum’s lyrics declaring “Logan’s a dick/I’m learning that’s hot.”
She shares, “I was obsessed with the show ‘Veronica Mars’ as a kid and I was revisiting it around the time I wrote this song. I wanted to sing about that childhood era when I was being exposed to a lot more than I was comfortable with. ‘Gimme shelter’ refers to the song but I’m also saying please give me shelter from graphic TV and film, from New York City, overwhelming lyrics, etc. I think the song is just about having my boundaries crossed and the effects of those transgressions (for example, growing up to think men are hot if they’re assholes).”
In January, Teitelbaum and her band will once again hit the road as the support for Suki Waterhouse’s North American tour. The dates kicks off January 18th in Denver, CO at the Bluebird Theatre and will make stops in, among other markets, Chicago’s Metro, NYC’s Webster Hall, and Dallas’ Cambridge Room HOB before concluding with two nights in Los Angeles at The Fonda and El Rey on February 10th and 11th, respectively. Additionally, Blondshell will make her return to Austin for SXSW 2023.
