Big Noise’s pop-punk duo, girlfriends, consisting of Travis Mills and Nick Gross, has dropped their latest endeavor—a stripped-down new single, “Life’s a Brittany.” Acting as the follow-up to their 2023 titular track, the band will release their next EP, Over My Dead Body, through Big Noise on May 12.

Produced By Andrew Goldstein (Machine Gun Kelly, blackbear, Papa Roach), the acoustic-driven “Life’s a Brittany” showcases a softer, sweeter side of the band with a twinkling background and takes a more emotional approach than their previous singles. The thunderous finale of the track, “Life’s a Brittany” is driven by self-expression and the group’s desire to connect with those who are struggling.

“‘Brittany’ was one of those songs that started off as a complete joke in my head,” Mills shares in a press release. “I almost felt guilty writing it because it’s so conversational and ‘easy,’ that I had to question if it was good or not. The beauty about working with a producer like Goldstein is he does a really great job at stripping away the ‘rules’ of songwriting. If it’s good it’s good, and I think it’s a song a lot of people would be scared to make, but it hits the nail on the head of who we are not only as a band but as people.”
