Remi Wolf continues to peel back the curtain on what is shaping out to be her most artistically ambitious and refined projects yet with her latest single, “Motorcycle.” Her highly anticipated sophomore album, Big Ideas, is out July 12 on Island Records.

“Motorcycle” is an emotionally raw and vulnerable ballad highlighting Remi’s bare vocal ability as a songstress. Created alongside Kenny Beats, Leon Michels, and the Dap-Kings, the song’s vocals and instrumentation were all recorded in one take with minimal edits.

The stripped back minimalist production lays the perfect foundation for Remi’s soulful and reflective lyrics to remain the center of attention while she floats through a jazzy guitar melody. Directed by, Sweetiepie, “Motorcycle’s” accompanying music video captures Remi’s sense of humor and introspectiveness as she tries her best at roleplaying a traditional housewife while dressed in vintage attire.

Deepening the song’s themes of romantic yearning and desire for a profound connection Remi is shown trying to maintain her home tidy to impress a cardboard cutout of a husband, but instead finds herself vacuuming the lawn, drenching the kitchen counter with coffee and smoking.

“Lyrically the song dives into this internal dichotomy I experience a lot in my life. One side of me is always wanting to slow down and settle down and be in love and be normal and have babies and s__t, while the other, very forceful, part of me needs to be restlessly independent and stubborn and free. The song is essentially a fantasy about me living in a reality where both sides of me can exist simultaneously…Secret lives of the wives of Harley Davidson type…” said Remi.

Big Ideas propels Remi to new heights as her honed sense of self and musicianship is on full display, presenting her big ideas as a magnum opus of guitar-smashing, hair-raising, soul-bearing, lung-filling, life-altering bangers.

Pre-order Big Ideas.
