Today, we’re premiering a new single from Chicago-based indie rocker Liska. The new song, “It Girl,” is the title track of her new EP which will be released later this year.

Liska had the following to say about the new track:

“I wrote ‘It Girl’ as somewhat of a declaration to myself. I was really feeling myself and spending arguably too much time on Pinterest, so a lot of the lyrics were essentially random thought bubbles I’d periodically put in my notes, strung together into a song. I wanted to create this character who’s confident, unapologetic and maybe a little bit too wrapped up in her own world. Might have even gone a little too Daniel Day-Lewis stepping into this character.

I was also spending a lot of time on TikTok, absolutely fascinated by the endless amounts of ‘aesthetics’ different ‘It Girls’ could tap into. I wanted to experience them all at once. The matcha drinking girlie girl, the cigarette smoking Olsen twin, like what would it look like if these girls were the same person? And is it possible I could become that person?”

Stream “It Girl” below and keep checking back, as Liska will be releasing additional singles this summer in anticipation of that new album!
