Sixteen-year-old Sydney-born singer/songwriter Evie Irie releases the official music video for 'Stupid Things' today via Republic Records, which is featured on Evie’s debut EP, 5 Weeks In LA. Hailing from just outside Sydney, Australia, Evie Irie is quietly emerging as something of an alternative soul-pop wunderkind at just 16 years of age.
Evie pens fully-realized pop anthems that are rooted in the experiences of her sisters and their friends. With the full support of her family, she moved to Nashville and attracted the attention of top songwriters and tastemakers by performing at open mics. 5 Weeks In LA was written and recorded during a trip to Los Angeles that also landed her a record deal with Republic Records. Her emotional take on leaving room for mistakes in the process of growing up will resonate with anyone who feels pressured to be a certain way. So often, even the people that love us are pushing us in different directions at once: on Stupid Things, Evie Irie makes a powerful demand for glorious, imperfect autonomy. Her fresh take on party-culture is perfect for fans of Lana Del Rey, with a sticky chorus hook that will have you looking for a few stupid moves to make on your own.
