The Aces celebrate Pride with new heartbreak anthem ‘Girls Make Me Wanna Die’

The Aces are back with a new single, “Girls Make Me Wanna Die.”

The indie pop outfit had made their return with a heartbreak anthem, all about young unrequited love. “Girls Make Me Wanna Die” comes in celebration of Pride, and The Aces will be continuing that celebration by popping up at festivals across North America.

“‘Girls Make Me Die’ is a nostalgic call back to our adolescence and shared experience of being young, queer, and painfully in love with your best friend,” The Aces explain. “Everyone remembers that feeling. So many ‘what if’s’, so much longing. Every single look and touch meant something. We wanted this song to feel desperate and full of youth, so we stripped it down to how everything started back when we were kids, jamming in the basement. Guitar, drums, bass, and a distorted vocal.”

Listen to “Girls Make Me Wanna Die” below.

Today’s release serves as The Aces’ first new song of 2022, following 2021’s “Don’t Freak” and their recent 2020 album, Under My Influence.

With shimmering melodies, catchy guitars, and driven percussion the track serves as a bubbly early aughts anthem. Lyrically, they deliver lines like, “She’s wearing my beat up jean jacket so damn well/ One swipe of a finger/ She leaves and I linger/ She’s killing me with desire for someone else/ Oh these girls that make me wanna die.”

The Aces are headed out on tour. Check out the dates below.
