Wallice

After picking up her first instrument at age 6, Wallice started writing songs in middle school and later played in her high school band, inspired by the lyricism of Thom Yorke, Lana Del Rey and the punky irreverence of Weezer and No Doubt. She also modeled and acted (once appearing in an episode of Frasier) throughout adolescence. A proud college dropout, she attended the New School in New York City for Jazz Vocal performance for a year before moving back to California and connecting with childhood friend and fellow artist marinelli, who helped her hone the wistful indie pop style that led to her rise. Following the 2021 release of her debut EP Off the Rails, she signed to Dirty Hit, sold-out her first headline shows including at The Lexington in London, and support tours for Beabdoobee, Still Woozy, chloe moriondo, Wallows and JAWNY. Her second EP 90s American Superstar pushed Wallice even further, chronicling the rise and fall of a fictional celebrity across five cutting, tongue-in-cheek tracks. With the release of Mr Big Shot, Wallice pushed her script forward once again.

Having just wrapped up her North American headline tour, Wallice spent a large stretch of 2023 so far touring through Australia, New Zealand and Asia with The 1975, and is fresh from a string of UK headline shows and further The 1975 support date in Vienna. Having packed out rooms in Glasgow, Manchester and London’s Moth Club, Wallice is set to return to the UK this August for Reading and Leeds Festivals before heading back to Australia for SXSW Sydney in October. Swiftly earmarked as one of indie pop’s most exciting new voices, Wallice has become synonymous for her wry, self-effacing anthems capturing Gen Z anxieties - championed by the likes of Vogue, New York Times, The FADER, BBC Radio 1, Steve Lamacq, Zane Lowe, NME and many more.
