L.A.-based singer-songwriter Rosie Tucker (they/them) has announced their third album Sucker Supreme out April 30, their first since signing with Epitaph Records. The new collection is a coming of age album aching with self-discovery, self-definition, and self-redefinition. Nowhere is this self-exploration more poignant than on lead single/video “Habanero,” a song about waiting for a transformation that isn’t coming. Rosie Tucker exploded into the musical zeitgeist with critically acclaimed 2019 album Never Not Never Not Never Not, sharing stages with kindred spirits Phoebe Bridgers, Soccer Mommy, Vagabon, and Remo Drive. Sucker Supreme is just the right follow-up: still playfully observed, still sneakily political, still indebted to folk singers of the past – but […]
