Alt-pop futurist Ashnikko has shared new single ‘Cheerleader’.
Out now, the single is an absolute bulldozer, grappling with a feeling of infinite youth and freedom. The release leads in to her debut album, with long-awaited LP ‘Weedkiller’ set to land on August 25th.
The new project follows her outstanding 2021 release ‘Demidevil’, and will be accompanied by a massive headline tour – including a night at London’s Alexandra Palace.
Out now, ‘Cheerleader’ is burst of vivacious colour and energy, building to that insistent, incredibly catchy chorus. Ashnikko comments…
“if youth and beauty are the currency, i will pay it in full until i am a withered husk decomposing on the moss and going back to mother earth. the beast looms in my periphery, constantly gazing and assessing as perform for him, hoping i am good enough!!!!!!!”
Directed by Joanna Nordahl, the video for ‘Cheerleader’ nods to cinematic classic Bring It On, while also dipping into folklore – there are hints of Midsommar in its curiously intense atmosphere.
Tune in now.
