Vicky Farewell shares new single/video, “Push It,” the track is off her upcoming album, Give A Damn, available May 10th via Mac’s Record Label. ​“Push It” begins serenely, its lyrics rife with frustration for an intimacy gone stagnant. “If you want to do better, go for it,” Farewell sings while her background harmonies cascade sweetly behind her voice. “I was going for my own twisted version of the Jeopardy theme song,” she explains. “I wanted to express my frustration about becoming stagnant. Sometimes, we are faced with the heartbreaking reality that you simply can’t take everyone along with you. I always think about the Paul Simon song, ‘Still Crazy After All These Years.’ Depending on which perspective you look at this particular song, ‘Push It’ is my adaptation of it”.

Give A Damn is the follow up to previous album Sweet Company, the album marks a notable shift for Farewell. Lyrically mature, personal and sincere, Entirely self-written and produced from her Los Angeles apartment, Give A Damn delves into emotional complexity, insecurity and attachment. “I needed to embrace vulnerability in order to meet my deeper self,” Farewell explains. “These songs came from a real place.”

While sorting through storage, Farewell rediscovered her first synthesizer from the early 2000s — a Yamaha S08 — a sentimental keyboard which served as a catalyst for much of Give A Damn, contributing to its romantic digital soundscape. “The S08 ignited a flame once I started writing my songs,” she reveals. “I found a part of myself again that gave me what I needed to set the tone for the record.” Drawing inspiration from Gal Costa, Heatwave, 90s R&B, and Y2K Eurodance mixes.

For those in the Los Angeles area, Farewell has announced an album release show on May 15th at Zebulon, with support from King Pari & Daryl Johns along with a DJ set from Mac DeMarco and Kiera McNally.
