While not exactly a punk tune, Girl Ultra has teamed up with Mexico City-based indie group Little Jesus for her new indie rock-inspired single, “Punk.”

A slow and melodic rocker, “Punk” comes packaged with the official announcement of Girl Ultra’s upcoming EP. The release date is yet to be announced, but the project will be dropping this Spring.

The new music video from Girl Ultra was directed by GRLS, a group consisting of Lucca Necoechea and Diego Andlovin, and Girl Ultra.

The video was filmed in the South Side of Mexico City. The location doubles as an inspiration for the single and EP.

In “Punk,” we see Girl Ultra and Little Jesus’ lead singer Santiago Casillas traverse Mexico City until they meet in an alleyway. The visuals feature distorted colors behind Girl Ultra’s leather jacket and red hair dye combo.

“Punk” stands as one of Girl Ultra’s smoothest and catchiest singles. The EP will feature the song in addition to two older singles from Girl Ultra, “rosas” and “Amores de droga.”

Both music videos — “Punk” and “Amores de droga” — feature callbacks to punk culture. In the latter, Girl Ultra is seen wed to a man draped in obvious punk rock attire and liberty spikes.

The character is depicted wearing a shirt that appears on each of the single’s cover artwork.

Girl Ultra also announced her upcoming United States tour, set to visit 23 cities between May 11 and June 10 this year. The singer’s tour will arrive in Philly on June 9 at World Cafe Live.
