The Julie Ruin – “I’m Done” (Stereogum Premiere)

Today the Julie Ruin return with the second single from their forthcoming Hit Reset. Like “I Decide,” the new “I’m Done” weaves traces of primitive rock ‘n’ roll and girl-group pop into Kathleen Hanna’s confrontational punk-rock offensive, but whereas the prior single darkly stomped along into chaotic noise, this one bops like a B-52s-inflected beach party. Hanna’s distinctive rallying cry remains out front as always, riding high atop the surfy undercurrent with shout-along lyrics like “I’m sick of waiting around to be heard!” It’s rad, so press play and wild out.
