Johanna Warren has put out some amazing albums over the last decade and has moved from dark folk to a fuller rock sound over that time. Her new single “I’d Be Orange” is possibly her most alt-pop single to date. Going full tilt prime MTV 90’s alt-pop, the electroacoustic rock number is about masochism and martyrdom in pop culture and the things people do in the quest for fame. “Set me on fire so I can be your guide” is the perfect lyric that encapsulates the whole topic. The single comes with an excellent ice-cream queen music video too. Watch out for my personal “oddly satisfying” cut at 3:34 in when during an ice cream and cake fight and giant dollop smashes not on Johanna’s face, but straight into her shocked mouth. Total fluke shot, but totally worth it!
“I’d Be Orange” is out now and the music video is available below. It’s taken from the forthcoming album “Lessons for Mutants” which is due for release on the 7th of October. The album is about metamorphosis and is available to pre-order now.
