Independent electro-pop-punk phenom Sizzy Rocket has unveiled her new album, Live Laugh Love today. The soul-baring record that explores the power in unhinged creativity and queer expression, marrying elements of pop with rock and roll on 15 songs with nothing left unsaid.
“there is power in picking yourself back up after everything falls apart and reclaiming your love for your own life,” says Rocket of the new album. “laughing it off. moving on.”
“i will always remember this era as the one where i picked myself up off the floor threw some glitter on and fucking slayyyyyyyyyyyyed,” Rocket continues via Twitter.
Live Laugh Love is heralded by four highlight advance-tracks, including “Rebel Revolution,” – an electrically charged rock ‘n roll paean to self-love and transformation, made with Benny Reiner and 3x GRAMMY® Award-nominated super-producer Fernando Garibay (Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears) – as well as “Wendy’s Parking Lot,” title track “Live Laugh Love” and “BUBBLEGUM.” “BUBBLEGUM” is accompanied by an official music video made with long-time collaborator Worst November. Rocket and Worst November filmed on the Q train in New York this past September, capturing the empowered artist letting loose in a deserted train car, sporting grungy glamor looks and blissfully rocking out to her guitar heavy anthem.
Rocket has long been known for her DIY approach to creating her visual universe as an independent artist who relies on the strength of her originality, creativity, and authenticity to build the Sizzy Rocket world without a major label budget. Owning her sexuality as an important part of her identity, she released a Playboy-certified sex-tape music video for her 2020 single “Smells Like Sex” (a reclamation of a woman’s power in leaking her own scandalous video), which went viral on YouTube, inspiring long-time peer FLETCHER (via Capitol Records) to follow suit with her own version of the voyeuristic concept.
Sizzy Rocket challenges what it means to be a pop artist in 2022 with her DIY approach, poetic and unapologetic lyricism, and a genre-blending musicality that takes influence from punk, hip-hop, and beyond. The Los Angeles-based artist became the sneering face of 21st century rock ‘n’ roll thanks to her viral 2016 electro-pop-punk seducer, “Bestie,” an unapologetically profane paean to turning your BFF into one with benefits.
Sizzy’s corrupting influence can be heard on songs penned for artists like Blu DeTiger, Noah Cyrus, Uffie, and Bea Miller. A seasoned touring artist, Sizzy has opened as direct support for Alice Glass, Boyfriend, GIRLI, Shamir, KITTEN, Imagine Dragons, and Lauren Sanderson and performed on the Main Stage PRIDE Festivals across the US. With this 4th LP under her belt, Rocket is poised for full blown stardom.
