It's what the 90s sound like in those ever so slightly tongue and cheek rom-coms where the alt. rock girl isn't trying to fit in, and no one cares about the popular kids except for a laugh. It's a genuine shade of the hopeful disappointment Billy Corgan was reaching for with his Smashing Pumpkins whine. It's Letters To Cleo on weed in the afternoon. It's equal parts satisfying and unassuming. It's Waxahatchee's new single "Under A Rock". The pretty friendly, but mostly frustrated hey idiot...wtf? song, for anyone who's ever held affection for an idiot.
Record number three from Waxahatchee, Ivy Tripp, is set to drop in April on Witchita Recordings. Pre-order it here and listen to "Under A Rock" below.
