Produced by Tommy English, K.Flay brings her trademark grit and spitfire lyricism to ‘Not In California, a thundering foot stomper of a tune with a adrenaline-boosting chorus guaranteed to make you move.

'Not In California' is available on all digital platforms today and as part of the album PRE-ORDER. Watch the eye-catching visualizer HERE.

Speaking about the song, K.Flay reveals: "We’re not in Kansas anymore. I think we all know that sensation. Of being in a place that resembles the world you know, but feels different somehow and the difference is unsettling and disorienting and scary. Kinda makes you wanna click your shoes together and go back home to how it used to be.

"Last September, I went to Stinson Beach, California to write and record songs for the album. The plan was to get out of LA for a week, work with two of my favourite people, and enjoy a bit of nature. Stinson is a small town about an hour north of San Francisco, sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean and the Redwood Forest. In the mornings, we’d run along the water or go hiking through the trees. It felt like magic up there. Sometimes you get glimpses of Planet Earth and it astounds you. So big and wild and beautiful.

"It’s easy to forget that we’re connected to this Planet. We push and pull, evolving together, giving each other life. These days I’ve been feeling a bit like Dorothy. I see the plastic islands and the melting glaciers and the 24 hour news cycle where people shout because loud seems to win and I think to myself. ‘We’re Not in California anymore’".

'Not In California' follows three previously released tracks, 'Bad Vibes' which was hailed by PAPER Magazine as “a fizzy blend of jock-jam worthy rock and sugary pop”, and likening the song to Kendrick Lamar, if "’Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe’ got a rockstar’s facelift”, the Dan Reynolds co-penned 'This Baby Don’t Cry', which The New York Timescalled "post-punk,” and praising K.Flay for “methodically [tossing] aside feminine stereotypes” and most recently, 'Sister' which was praised by Billboardfor delivering “a chorus that explodes with bubbly synths and hooky, Annie Clark-esque guitars".
