OUT NOW: Glitter Wizard’s Glam Fueled New EP
For fans of platform shoes, vintage synths and sonic speedballs, the new EP serves as an entry point to the band’s glam labyrinth. It finds the Wizards injecting more ’70s junkshop fuel into their shtick, akin to the likes of Slade, Hello, and Angel, with some Sweet thrown in to boot into their already stack-heeled, glitter-sparkled splendor. Glitter Wizard have truly loaded up Kiss the Boot with plenty sequin-laced riffs, leather-clad hooks, and stardust-laden harmonies.
A recent recipient of Billboard’s prestigious Women in Music Rising Star award, (previously bestowed upon Lady Gaga, Billie Eilish and Nicki Minaj), the single is her first release of 2023. For the song she links with fellow Floridian, Grammy-nominated rapper Kodak Black for her first-ever collaboration with a male artist.
