Young punk band The Linda Lindas have announced their highly anticipated debut LP, “Growing Up“, due out June 3rd via Epitaph Records. They made it with Carlos de la Garza, father of vocalist and guitarist Lucia de la Garza and her sister, drummer Mila de la Garza, and they told Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, “So our dad is our producer. And it was kind of cool, seeing what he does all day, like, ‘Oh, this is kind of cool seeing what you’re doing.’ And it’s like, huh. And then we got to look and we get to be part of it. Yeah. It’s like another side of him, but at the same time, it’s like we get to have so much fun while doing it because we know him so well. I feel like recording with our dad is so much easier than recording with someone we barely know or we don’t know as well as our dad, because I feel like it’s just so much easier to be ourselves and have fun around him than it is to have fun around, I don’t know, someone we don’t really know.”

They’ve also shared the title track, which was written by Lucia, who told Zane, “So I was just sitting in our living room, and it was during the pandemic, it was just at a point when I was just particularly missing everyone. I was like, ‘Oh my God, we’re at this point in our lives where we’re supposed to be figuring out who we are and what we want to do with our life and stuff.’ But it sucked that I wasn’t able to do that with some of the people that are most important to me. I don’t know. It was like you can’t make growing up happen, but you can’t stop it from happening either.

So I was just like, I wanted to sing about it, I wanted to write a song about it because that’s how I found that I wanted to express myself most during the pandemic.” “Growing Up” is accompanied by a cat-filled video directed by Opening Ceremony co-founder Humberto Leon. This video was extra special because I worked with the girls on designing the outfits with Batsheva, styling the looks with Rodarte and Warby Parker. The entire video was a collaboration between me and the girls. By shooting the video on iPhone 13 Pro Max, it created an intimacy with the video that felt like we were listening in on a day in the life of The Linda Lindas.
