Fresh off their second US tour of the year, CSS have released the video for “City Grrrl,” the second single off their latest album, La Liberacion. The eye-popping, colorful video shows Lovefoxxx with the pink hair and black lipstick heralded in the song’s chorus, showing her effortless swagger. The track is one of lead singer Lovefoxxx’s most autobiographical songs to date.
She explains: “I revisited my teenage years while living in the suburbs of my hometown. I’d be on the floor of my bedroom making the most ridiculous clothes and glue fake colored hair or x-ray pictures on clothes. I’d be sporting goth make up at 8am and when I hit the streets people would curse me from their cars in the most aggressive way. [Calling me] ‘drag queen’, ‘whore.’ “ The song captures the sentiment of feeling like a true outsider and yearning to escape to a big city to find fellow outcasts.
