Hailing from LA, Toronto native artist LØLØ dropped her latest collaboration with Maggie Lindemann, and a music video for the single titled “debbie downer.” The pop-punk track sees both artist level up their performance as they deliver polished vocals, stunning energy, and unique mood.
“debbie downer” is filled with pop-punk tread marks and represents everything this fusion of genres is all about: charismatic instrumentalism, absorbing lyricism, and a lot of rebellious spirit.
As the press release notes, LØLØ expertly crafts her metaphor by turning the infamous 2000 movie Bring It On’s cheer chant “It’s cold in here” into an intoxicating and undeniable hook in a song that’s all about being the odd girl out. The cheeky turn of lyric “brr it’s cold in here, all black everything, sad and weird” is equally as enjoyable in both LØLØ’s raspy Hayley Williams-esque purr and Lindemann’s Halsey-like pop diva belt. With “debbie downer,” LØLØ is cementing her status as a pillar of the pop-punk revival and as Gen Z’s chosen liaison between the past and present.
