Ik gooi me ook een op de 'charismatische frontvouwen met gekleurd haar en een ferme strot' categorie. Oeie, was dat sexistisch? Oh well, Coming For Blood is een leuk nummer, héél melodieus, best funky. Het doet me eigenlijk denken aan een iets stevigere Def Leppard uit de Pyromania periode. Ze maken trouwens ook aardige covers.
Love, Drugs, Misery verscheen op 23 september vai Better Noise Music.
This album is filled with a diverse selection of music, with each track sounding different to the last.
Thrilled to finally be sharing their body of work, lead singer Eva Marie commented: “I’m really excited for people to finally hear this album in its entirety! All of us grew up playing together in the bar scene, including the producer we worked with on this album. So to finally be here feels surreal. The album title Love, Drugs & Misery is naming the themes you’ll hear in each of the songs. Conceptually, the title is meant to be a sequel to the old adage “sex, drugs and rock n roll.” I think that generation had a great time, maybe had a little too much fun, gave birth to our generation, then spun out of control and now we are left with “love, drugs, and misery”.
On “Comatose” and “Heroin(e)”: “Songs like “Comatose” and “Heroin(e)” present two sides of the same coin discussing addiction from both the perspective of the person struggling and the loved one who’s just trying to help”.
On “Misery” and “Unstoppable”: “We have songs like “Misery” and “Unstoppable” both discussing relationships, one is a woman scorned, the other describes my 1980s burnout parents' high school sweetheart love story”.
On “The Strong”: “Then you get to “The Strong”, I felt like this was a message I needed but couldn’t find so I wrote it for myself. We are a band that typically defaults to writing very vibey and meaningful songs so this one came together so naturally. It’s one of my favorites to perform live because we dedicate it as a love song to the crowd. The song is meant to be inspirational and honor each person's struggle to be their best selves”.
Eva continued: “The emotional roller coaster is not just tied to the lyrical content though. I think sonically there are upbeat bangers, swing-feel southern vibes, straight up anthems and pretty ballads all over this album! We definitely took some liberties pulling from all kinds of influences (from Journey to Christina Aguilera) but we did not forget that we’re a rock band so there’s plenty of epic guitar solos too. I hope everyone loves this album as much as we do!”.
