Wallice releases new single ‘Japan’

Wallice releases her new single ‘Japan’, her first new music since the release of her 90s American Superstar EP via Dirty Hit earlier this year. The new single arrives alongside a Japanese version of the track, as well as a music video shot during Wallice’s recent trip to Japan.

A departure from the grungy, rowdy alt-pop seen on her previous releases, ‘Japan’ showcases Wallice’s more reflective and sentimental side – an atmospheric ode to reconnection with her Father’s homeland and in turn her heritage. 

On the track, Wallice comments; “My father was born and raised in Tokyo and lived there until he was 27, and my mother lived there for a couple years in the 90s, so Japanese culture has heavily influenced my identity. I don’t know my father’s family in Japan at all. I’ve only met them once when I was little at my grandfather’s funeral, and since then my grandmother has passed. Recently my mother moved across the country from California to Georgia which has left me without that familial sense of home. This song explores where home is and why I am so drawn to Japan.”
