Girl Wilde Shares New 'Bubblegum Grunge' Single "Probably Crying"

We got 19 seconds into “Probably Crying” and related way harder than we prepared for. With lyrics instantly questioning God, while getting high, and crying.. this song SpEaKs to us. Who the fuck wants to fit in, and be fake for a crowd, anyways? Let’s be vulnerable, together. Girl Wilde is as real as it gets, and tbh our generation needs it.

"As soul-healing as Maggie Rogers’ new folk-pop anthems and yet as rousing as vintage rocker girl hits by the likes of P!nk and Avril Lavigne, “Probably Crying” is brutally honest and refreshingly courageous."

Los Angeles based pop-rocker Girl Wilde is back today with the release of "Probably Crying," the first single off her upcoming debut EP. Packed with 90s-inspired alt-rock instrumentals and vibrant pop melodies, "Probably Crying" is another heavy hitting track from the emerging 'bubblegum grunge' artist.

On the meaning of the new single, Girl Wilde writes that "'Probably Crying' is about owning my emotional tendencies and trying to figure out where they come from." She continues to explain that "growing up I was deemed 'overemotional' (I can be). Like everyone else I have my own unique traumas, and working through them has been pretty painful. There was a certain time in my life when I could only muster the energy to cry. My expectations for what life should be didn’t leave room for me to experience reality, and when I did, it almost seemed to hurt worse. I didn’t have the patience, or distance from my own emotions."

Previously songwriting for others as well as her past musical project, Alex Barnes aka Girl Wilde is no novice to the music world. The Girl Wilde project was born from a desire to be unrestricted by genre, expectations, and trends. Blending influences of rock, pop, and electronica, Girl Wilde is carving out a fresh and distinctive sound that is uniquely and truly her own.

Girl Wilde made her introduction to the world last year with her debut single "Bad Side," which she quickly followed up with singles "Nervous Breakdown" and "Fake Louis." With over 300K+ streams to date and support from Alternative Press, C-Heads, Ones To Watch, and idobi Radio, Girl Wilde is a glam alt-pop goddess you're going to want to keep an eye (and ear) on.
