NEW LP ONLY FOR YOU OUT FRIDAY MAY 18 ON FRENCHKISS RECORDS
PLAYING MAY 17 AT FREEHAND HOTEL IN LOS ANGELES, CA
In advance of the May 18 release of her new album, Only For You (Frenchkiss Records), Nedelle Torrisi has revealed the video for her single "Rich Kids World." It debuted via Culture Creature who notes, "QUOTE" and she told them "The sarcastic lyrics are about how the world is made for rich people, so I play both an Italian movie star and an Italian peasant in the video. It's an homage to my Sicilian heritage, as my grandparents came to the states the year before the Great Depression and built a life during that difficult time."

To celebrate the Only For You release, Nedelle is playing a record release partytomorrow, May 17, at The Freehand Hotel in Los Angeles.
Only For You is the follow up to 2015's Advice From Paradise and was co-produced by Torrisi and Billy Uomo (Babes) who also played and programmed drums. Jeremy Gara of Arcade Fire lent his skills to Only For You, along with many other talented L.A.-based musicians. "Good Love" was produced by the band Inc., Kenny Gilmore (Ariel Pink) produced "Show Me Your Face" and "Vision of Love." David Greenbaum (Beck) and Gilmore mixed the album.
Beyond her own work, Torrisi has contributed and played with a number of artists and bands whose ranks include Ariel Pink, Dev Hynes and Sufjan Stevens. Her accomplishments extend to being the "Dear Abby"of the indie rock world by way of a long-running advice column called "Advice from Paradise." In the past The New York Times has said Torrisi has "a guileless voice, an instrument of earnest pleasure and petition," and Stereogum has noted her music has "80s synths that imply carefree pop, but Torrisi's gorgeous, layered vocals add depth that the '80s themselves never achieved."
"Nedelle Torrisi's synthpop songs are electric and enigmatic, lovelorn and warm. They carry undeniable undertones of 90's R&B that can be credited to her formal jazz training in college, seamlessly paired with with airy 80's synths. Uproxx
