The new track follows her previous singles Dysmorphia and More Than A Friend which form part of her Damsel In Distress era.
Speaking about the single, Girli explained, “Ricochet is about being in a bad relationship but loving the thrill of the drama; knowing that you deserve better but also liking the feeling of emotional cat and mouse with someone.”
The track is accompanied by a visualiser. Girli opened up about the visualiser matching the vibe of the song, saying, “The Ricochet visualiser sums up the vibe of the song to me; playful, enjoying the destruction of something that’s meant to be pretty and cute and lovely. I’m surrounded by all these representations of romance and I’m maniacally f**king it all up. The song is about having a destructive addictive fling that’s making you jealous and obsessive and instead of leaving it for something healthier, you’re relishing the drama. That’s what I wanted to visualiser to like too- me enjoying the chaos that I’m causing all around me.”
Girli is also set to join Architects, Machine Gun Kelly and lots more at London’s first alternative hip hop and rock festival, ALT + LDN at Clapham Common on 30 August.
