Why do we like this?

Indie Shuffle is no stranger to the many wonders of King Princess but I felt it was about time to showcase a somewhat underrepresented side of KP: The Rockstar side. The New Yorker’s discographer contains a healthy mix of indie-funk and straight up club tracks.

The lead single from her debut LP, Cheap Queen, “Ohio” is a five-minute-long guitar track that begins with a weeping ballad that swells up into a huge bridge that gives KP the chance to go full-on rockstar. She calls upon her glam-rock idols in more than just aesthetics delivering a scratchy and ruthless vocal performance that marries perfectly with the track’s constant guitar antics and oddly warm electronic piano.

As much as I’ve enjoyed her recent electropop releases, I hold some hope that we’ll get to see more rock and roll in her upcoming sophomore record.

I’ll Snap You Like a VHS Tape

St Vincent has introduced us to a far more aggressive side of themselves with their Daddy’s Home project and with “Down” we see that aggression focused like a beam.

A slow-building aggressive sound is always good in songs — it’s a beautifully cathartic feeling when a song encapsulates that moment of boiling over for you and also guides you through the moment.

This song holds your hand and walks you to the door, gives you the batt, and asks you to swing. It’s all about the payback, layered over with nostalgic blues guitars, hard-hitting 90’s club samples, and a funk-centric central sound. It’s a ‘get to the house, burn their clothes and throw their furniture through the window’ kinda sound and it just feels so good.

Revenge is a dish best served rocking.

Lastly, the music video is a dope 90’s inspired spy/revenge film and you should watch it!
