“Its sophisticated soundscape engulfs the listener from the outset, with a slow-burning groove to draw the listener in.” – COMPLEX
“one of the hottest new acts in town.” – MTV
New Zealand act LA Women return with their new single ‘Don’t Call Me Back,’ fresh from over 7-million Spotify streams and stealing the keen ears of listeners from New Zealand to the USA. Consisting of cousins and school friends from rural New Zealand, the inseparable group deliver a big-city sound influenced by the likes of R&B big shots 6LACK and Ty Dolla $ign. With early support from Complex, Hillydilly and more, the Kiwi trio return with their most upbeat R&B-infused single to date.
‘Don’t Call Me Back’ was co-created by production prodigy Montell2099, who boasts credits with 21 Savage and remixes for Diplo x Trippie Redd, Lorde, and more. The two forces have created a summer festival circuit ready track, waiting for the single kids to seek their teeth into.
On their latest offering ‘Don’t Call Me Back’, dimly lit, daydream R&B fills the room with an ambient aroma. The contagious melodies of a pop hit leave LA Women crossing genres with sophistication and ease. After their last single, ‘Conscience’ captured the intoxicating romance of a dangerous love affair with nightlife, LA Women hang up on hopeless romanticism with ‘Don’t Call Me Back’. The anthem discourages settling for somebody who you sense isn’t right for you just for the sake of being in a relationship.
‘Don’t Call Me Back’ plays out as a cheeky self serenade. Read between the lines, the single is a suspicious statement about steering clear of toxic, unhealthy relationships that aren’t right for you. “Don’t call me back was a song that came about literally from a voice memo of a melody being hummed, and the lyrics kinda just fit the cadence of the voice memo. Without realising it I wrote somewhat of a sassy song,” lead singer Jake laughs. “It’s not about anyone in particular, but more about that feeling you get when you find yourself with someone you shouldn’t be with.”
“Check yourself, what’s the deal?
Delete my number, don’t call me back
Can’t you tell, yeah you’re bad for my health
Don’t call me, don’t call me back,"
