Los Angeles indie rocker Colleen Green doesn’t ask for much—she simply wants to be left alone. That reasonable request serves as the premise of her new single, “I Wanna Be Ignored” (not to be confused with “I Wanna Be Degraded”), a synth-forward, shockingly danceable nod to The Ramones that debuted on Thursday.
Green told Billboard of her new single, “‘I Wanna Be Ignored’ is a song about disillusionment that was written as background music for the Starburns Audio podcast Harmontown.” The song comes to us ahead of Green’s first full-length release since her 2015 album I Want to Grow Up: nine-track LP Casey’s Tape / Harmontown Loops, a reimagining of her 2016 cassette EP that also features four never-before-released tracks, pressed on vinyl and set for a Sept. 7 release via Infinity Cat Recordings.
“I Wanna Be Ignored” is lean, mean and unmistakably Green’s (forgive us): The song eschews her usual power-chord crunch, opting instead for glossy keys and a bass line that simply won’t quit. Green’s sparing vocals are near-ghostly, a far cry from her performance on previous Casey’s Tape / Harmontown Loops single “Let Go.” We’re excited to see what other surprises the West Coast songstress has up her sleeves for this new release.
