French Vanilla – “All The Time” Video

Los Angeles quartet French Vanilla make danceable, no wave-inflected pop music primed for a new generation. After cutting their teeth playing queer punk parties and DIY spaces, the band signed with Danger Collective for their self-titled debut. Their sophomore release How Am I Not Myself? is out this summer.

Accompanying the album announcement, French Vanilla have shared a vibrant new Kailee McGee-directed video for its lead single, “All The Time.” The track is a reflection by frontwoman Sally Spitz on her experience breaking up with a man for a woman and all the anxiety that decision brought. The band expands on “All The Time” in a press release:

“All The Time” relates singer Sally Spitz’s experience leaving a long-term heterosexual relationship to be with a woman she fell for while the band was on tour. The song is about realizing and coming to terms with multi-faceted sexual identity; in making herself vulnerable to change and upheaval, a world of desire moved into view. The band focused on creating a strong, memorable chorus, bringing a greater pop sensibility than their previous work.
