Singer-songwriter Remi Wolf has achieved notable worldwide acclaim in recent years for her unique take on indie-pop; her album Juno, released in 2021 under Island Records, has gone on to be a staple within the indie community and the musician released a deluxe version of the collection on June 3, 2022. Her whimsical, dreamy sounds quickly set her apart from other musicians, magazines and newspapers like The New York Times, Pitchfork, Billboard, and more calling her one of the most exciting artists in our decade. As she grapples with this success, she says, “I don’t know if I really had a goal other than make an album that I really liked. And I mean, you have like classic stuff, like critical acclaim, like you want to get reviewed by, I don’t know, high profile blogs and journalists and stuff. I think everything has kind of just been one big shock.” Juno has gone on to hit over 70 million streams and Wolf has been on tour ever since its release, playing at venues across the United States and festivals.
Remi Wolf spoke with B-Sides host Pete Mar on the success of Juno, live recordings, how the likes of Cake and the Red Hot Chili Peppers were of great influence as a youth and continue to be a foundation of her music.
