STRAWBERRIES is RIVALS latest teaser of their upcoming album, SAD LOOKS PRETTY ON ME.
The new track is a song about front woman KALIE WOLFE’s “past addictions with drugs and alcohol and how she found happiness, which turned into healing past those issues. The song was an oddball out on the album; it’s the only song in a major key and the only song that has a very happy feeling while also being about one of the most serious topics on the entire record. Micket wrote the song at home to a Latin-styled beat which gave it this extremely uplifting feeling while also still feeling like RIVALS.”
WOLFE says, “Micket wrote [‘Strawberries’] to a Latin-styled beat which gave it this extremely uplifting feeling while also still feeling like RIVALS. In the studio it was a very different vibe for us, we all sat around just so confused about how amazing the song was sounding even though it was so different than our normal style, but we just rolled with it and we’re so glad we did. To our favorite lyric in that song ‘Happy is temporary but I can’t look back,’ keep moving forward and don’t look back!”
