Take a walk on the wild side with our latest obsession, the glitter and latex-infused indie-pop bad-bitch Sabrina Bernstein AKA Sizzy Rocket. “Sizzy Rocket is to Sabrina what Ziggy Stardust was to Bowie,” the singer explains. “It is the fearless, insane, electric version of myself—my masterpiece. If I stayed in Sizzy Rocket all the time, I would lose my fucking mind, and I have.”

The New York-based songstress gives life with the first single off her new LP THRILLS, due for release in early 2016. “Bad Kids” takes you on a nicotine-filled, leather jacket joyride through rebel nights. “It’s a Sid Vicious-level angst-y punk anthem with a pink pop song bow on top,” Bernstein said. “‘Bad Kids’ is about feeling that demon inside of you, that urge to fuck shit up, and knowing you’re not alone because I feel it too.”

The track was co-written with Ivor Novello award winner Scott Hoffman, who goes by the stage name “Babydaddy,” of the Scissor Sisters. “I’m so comfortable around him in the studio,” she said about their working relationship. “I can talk about hickeys and sex in the backseats of cars—messy teenager shit.”
