Remi Wolf enters a new era with 'Big Ideas'

One of my personal highlights from SXSW 2023 was getting to see Remi Wolf's eclectic style and infectious energy firsthand. More than a year later, she's set to make waves once again by sharing Big Ideas with the world.

The new album's release cycle started with an only-on-YouTube video she titled "Just the Start" — a one-take acoustic performance recorded straight to cassette tape that addressed her challenges with the world and the expectations artists face to be successful, look a certain way and conform.

Befitting its title, that was merely the first indication of the album to come. "Cinderella" served as a perfect official single to reintroduce Remi to the world and highlight her evolution as an artist. The track blends her signature quirky pop and tons of fun, signaling a happy-but-reflective shift in her musical journey. Fans have praised the song for its catchy melodies and thought-provoking themes, hinting at a more expansive and ambitious project on the horizon.

Big Ideas promises to delve deeper into Wolf's creative universe when it gets its release this Friday, July 12, exploring new sonic territories and lyrical concepts. Alongside the two songs we talked about during our interview, tracks like "Alone in Miami," "Toro" and "Motorcycle" showcase a different facet of her artistry, from the whimsical and playful to the deeply emotional and introspective.

As Wolf continues to rise in the music world, my feeling is that Big Ideas will represent not just another project, but a significant milestone in her career. She's poised to once again captivate audiences with her creativity and vision, proving this is indeed just the beginning of her remarkable journey.
