Elizabeth Nistico, co-founder and lead singer of the indie darling duo, HOLYCHILD, unveils her new solo art project, Revenge Wife. Not too long ago, she released a lovely debut single, entitled, “Earthquake.”
Revenge Wife – “Earthquake” single
“‘Earthquake’ was recorded in Los Angeles. I actually came up with the chorus melody when I was by myself, walking around Highland Park. ‘Earthquake’ is an earnest song about unrequited love, which is a nice way of saying ‘rejection.’ It’s about loving someone who doesn’t love you back.” – Revenge Wife explained
‘Earthquake’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who experiences a separation from someone who recently walked out of her life. Apparently, she misses this individual and can’t understand why her love interest doesn’t love her anymore.
‘Earthquake’ contains an emotional narrative, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. The sad girl tune possesses minimalist indie-pop instrumentation flavored with a 1990s video game inspired sample. Furthermore, “Earthquake” serves as a tasty appetizer of what listeners can expect to hear from Revenge Wife’s “Background Songs for Your Boring Life, Part I” EP. The four-track project will be accompanied by a series of horror-themed videos directed by Revenge Wife, which will culminate in a surreal nightmarish short film.
“If you felt an earthquake would you think about me?”
“It’s been uplifting to listen to my music, knowing that this is how I want my voice to sound. I just wanted this song to feel really honest. It’s almost like cringe-honest when I listen to it. It feels like a page in my diary. David Bowie had this quote about making art and how if you are an artist and you want to keep evolving. You have to go out into the water where you can’t touch the ground anymore. You have to feel uncomfortable.” – Revenge Wife stated
With Revenge Wife, Nistico steps out of her comfort and into a captivating new persona that allows her to explore trauma through music, video, and art like never before. So far, she has directed more than 40 music videos for HOLYCHILD and other artists. Also, she has co-written songs for other artists including “Xanax Damage” by Future. She has sync deals with Apple and Old Navy and has gone on tours with Passion Pit, Walk The Moon, and MØ.
‘Background Songs for Your Boring Life, Part I’ is part of a larger album and art project. Unlike her days in HOLYCHILD, Nistico is more involved in the production process. Leading to a more authentic sound as Revenge Wife. Also, a more empowering experience for her as an artist.
