Awesome School Teens THE LINDA LINDAS Make Furor With Riot Grll Punk Anthem ‘RACIST, SEXIST BOY’

25 May 2021

Band: THE LINDA LINDAS (Los Angeles)
Who: Awesome female teen band Half Asian/Half Latinx
featuring Mila (10), Eloise (13), Lucia (14) and Bela (16) who
play together since 2018 (!) and already opened as support
act for punk icons like Bikini Kill and Best Coast.

Track: RACIST, SEXIST BOY

A song inspired by a real-life racist incident as the utterly cool
10-year old drummer Mila explains: “A little while before we went
into lockdown a boy in my class came up to me and said his Dad had
told him to stay away from Chinese people. After I told him I was Chinese
he backed away from me. So Eloise and I wrote this song based on that
experience.”

The school teens premiered their new punk anthem in the Los Angeles
Public Library
, which has been hosting a TEENtastic Tuesdays Series of
concerts, celebrating AAPI (that’s Asian American and Pacific Islander)
Month.

Score: This is awesome. I love this. Young kids standing up and making a
sharp-cutting, alarming statement about racism and sexism with a spot-on,
in your face, punk anthem à la Bikini Kill. This clear-cut, and totally fun, riot
grrl ripper is fueled by young spirits saying ‘move over, adults, rock and roll
belongs to the young generations, not the old ones and definitely not to
the racist ones and the sexist ones.’ You betcha!

Plug in, Lindas…
