“’Oh!’ is one of the first songs we collaborated on during the pandemic, masked and distanced on the front porch,” recalls the band. “It started with the main riff and progression Bela brought to the band. Eloise wrote the verses and Lucia and Mila wrote the choruses. The song deals with trying to help out someone and having it blow up in your face.” – The Linda Lindas

Punk and feminism have always gone hand in hand, and The Linda Lindas harness that power to amplify important messages. They went viral for “Racist, Sexist Boy,” but the lyrics of “Oh!” point in a different direction, wallowing in the frustration of someone else’s decisions. With an apathetic ambiguity, the band answers its own rhetorical questions as they wonder in the chorus what to do or say to a stubborn friend: nothing. If you really want to help someone, they have to accept your support.

The Linda Lindas recently opened for Bikini Kill at the Palladium, Then, after dropping several tunes including a political number aptly titled “Vote!,” their AAPI Heritage Month performance at the Cypress Park Library went viral. This brilliant quartet of Asian and Latinx musicians has come together for a new single—their first on Epitaph Records.

Epitaph Records is an artist-first indie label founded in Los Angeles by Bad Religion guitarist, Brett Gurewitz. Early releases from a variety of punk heavyweights helped launch the 90s punk explosion. Along the way, Epitaph has grown and evolved creatively while sticking to its mission of helping real artists make great recordings on their own terms.
