ANNOUNCED FOR THE GREAT ESCAPE
FESTIVAL THIS MAY
French-Korean-American artist spill tab shares a new single “Sunburn” today, co-produced with Solomonophonic (Remi Wolf, Dora Jar, Wallows). She has just been announced to join The Great Escape festivalthis May, and will arrive in the UK fresh off the back of a North American tour with Wallows. “Sunburn” spun first as Clara Amfo’s Hottest Record in the World on BBC Radio 1 today, and hints at more to come as she continues to stake her claim as one of alt-pop’s most innovative and fearless new names.
“Sunburn” arrives alongside a visualizer which sees spill tab portray the song’s title quite literally, and on the track she comments; “I had a lot of fun making this with Solomonophonic, he’s been a homie for a while, and I’m such a fan of everything he works on so I was stoked to work together. He’s such an energetic and dynamic person which translates into music, and we both wanted to make something loud and a bit weird. So we started making ‘Sunburn’ on one of his synths running through with a weird ass pedal he had just gotten and went from there. The lyrics come from a place of unsettledness and frustration, which felt like it matched the energy of the instruments.”
2021 was a breakout year for spill tab, culminating in the December release of her EP Bonnie. Setting the pace with her effusive, untethered lead single “PISTOLWHIP”, she released a string of forward-thinking tracks complete with a line up of well-cast collaborators. Chicago rapper Tommy Genesis unleashes on the glitchy “Indecisive”, JAWNY chants playfully across “Grade A”, and “Velcro” unveils a duet moment between spill tab and Gus Dapperton. Her talents quickly caught the ears of Metronomy, who invited her to appear on their surprise Posse EP, featuring and co-producing on the track “Uneasy”. She spent a good portion of the year on the road too – joining both Gus Dapperton and JAWNY for their respective North American tours, and spending some time in France and the UK.
