Los Angeles-based alt-pop singer-songwriter MOTHICA shares “Last Cigarette” via Heavy Heart Records – her imprint with Rise Records/BMG. The track features Antiguan-German singer-songwriter Au/Ra. “Last Cigarette” follows the previous singles “Sensitive” and “Casualty,” which have garnered over 4.3M global streams and rising. All three tracks are taken from MOTHICA’s to be announced forthcoming album, Nocturnal.
“I wrote ‘Last Cigarette’ about someone I met who reminded me of myself in a toxic way,” shares MOTHICA. “We shared a lot of pessimistic tendencies, and it reminded me of trying to quit cigarettes, something that we all know is bad for you, but there’s still this allure to be caught in a negative cycle.”
MOTHICA will hit the road this summer with Coheed and Cambria, and Dance Gavin Dance beginning July 12 in Miami, FL. Tickets are on sale now. MOTHICA will also make an appearance at So What?! Music Festival this spring and Aftershock Festival in Sacramento this fall. For more information, visit https://www.mothica.com/.

Growing up in Oklahoma, MOTHICA found openly talking about mental health struggles to be taboo and looked to the internet for a sense of community. Though MOTHICA has been writing music since she was a kid, she did not pursue music until she was 18, producing and releasing her songs independently online. Embarking on a journey of self-expression and exploration through music, MOTHICA has since released a handful of EPs, countless singles, and her 2020 debut record Blue Hour.
Making catchy alt-pop about her difficult subject matter, MOTHICA has racked up 200 million global streams and has collaborated with artists like nothing,nowhere., Royal & the Serpent, and Kailee Morgue. She has built a passionate fanbase that connects with her openness on past traumas, battle with depression, and sobriety. MOTHICA seeks to challenge stigmas surrounding mental health with her inspiring message, using music as an outlet to depict a shared experience that anyone could relate to.
