WALLOWS Share Irresistible New Single ‘Scrawny’

With swaggering confidence and apparent bravado, the newest single from Wallows is one you can’t resist.

Wallows 2019

It’s here. The moment we’ve all been waiting for since Wallows released their music video for Are You Bored Yet? with Clairo and teased this track. Scrawny is another glimpse at the eagerly anticipated debut album Nothing Happens, which will be released on March 22nd via Atlantic Records.

Sonically, it’s a bright track; imagine sunshine in musical form, and this would be it. Reverb-tinged guitars filter in through upbeat drums, and honest lyrics just add in an extra sprinkle of charisma for you to enjoy. It’s an indie anthem about being true to yourself, apparent through the confidence that oozes through the lyrics “I’m a scrawny motherfucker with a cool hairstyle”. Poking fun at the listener for not being able to resist their charm when they sing “You don’t like my clothes but you still like my smile”, there’s a hint of insecurity hidden behind this wall of bravado but this is quickly covered over by tongue-in-cheek lyricism and optimistic guitars.
