California's Remi Wolf sparkles with euphoria in new single “Woo!”

08 April 2020, 17:30 | Written by Hannah Browne

Remi Wolf isn’t your conventional Los Angeles baddie. Bold, upbeat, and full of life, she’s characterful in her modern pop context – no more so than on her new single “Woo!”

At 24 years old, Remi Wolf fuses the soul elements of Janis Joplin with the cultural vigour of M.I.A., which informs her unique creative sound. Elements of electronic and synthesised soundscapes align on “Woo!” to reveal a danceable explosion of feelings.

The accompanying video is a Garden of Eden-meets-acid trip experience. Wolf, fitted in a thrift store getup, spins “Woo!” into a surrealist experience influenced by early 2000s culture (think Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games, Nickelodeon’s The Amanda Show and Willy Wonka), as she voyages through an animated dystopia.

“'Woo!' That’s the sound I make when I open up a pack of Gushers and vibe on a bish heavy like heheheh,” says Wolf. “Actually, though I literally wrote ‘Woo!’ as one stream of consciousness and don’t even remember what I wrote.”

“It’s fun and cute and sparkly and INTENSE. The song is an ADHD explosion of my feelings on LOVE. Please listen to it while cooking, driving or showering”.

“Woo!” is out today via Virgin EMI / Island Records. Find Remi Wolf on Instagram.
