Alyse Vellturo’s indie bedroom pop project PRONOUN has announced her new EP, OMG I MADE IT, will release June 11 via Wax Bodega. The lead single from it, “I WANNA DIE BUT I CAN’T (CUZ I GOTTA KEEP LIVING)”, is out now.
Vellturo says of the single:
“‘I WANNA DIE BUT I CAN’T (CUZ I GOTTA KEEP LIVING)’ is about the uncomfortable feeling that everyone around you is growing into their own lives while I feel like nothing’s changing within myself. It’s the uncomfortable feeling of not wanting to be on this planet but knowing I really have to put in effort and figure out how to make life work for me. It’s about the uncomfortable but at the same time comforting feeling that others feel the same. It’s literally a hard look in the mirror, by myself, in a bathroom, asking myself what the hell is up. I’m talking to myself throughout the entire thing, but these days who isn’t.
The EP sees Vellturo continue with the self-produced bedroom pop, with not-so underlying themes of mental health, honesty, and uncertainty. Vellturo describes OMG I MADE IT as a replacement for catching up with someone over the past year.
“It’s as if I bumped into an old friend who asked how I have been and I just started vomiting for 18 minutes and 9 seconds.”
