Much has been said on ATH about San Francisco indie rockers The She’s over the last couple of years or so. It’s clear we are fans right? I’m continuing our fandom of the band with this sweet new single and video for “Sorry”. I love how this band can trick you into thinking this is going to be just simple, sort of upbeat indie rock song, but then they drop in a bridge about 2.5 minutes in with some heavily distorted guitars and power. Check it out below.
I think the next year could be an incredible ride if you’re following San Fran’s The She’s. They’ve already had some buzz about them, but I see that getting bigger with song’s like this new single filling up their sophomore release. There are a few moments on this song when they seem to employ a nod towards the Pixies, with a guitar chord in the background that seems to work against the track’s natural progression. They’ve also got this knack for crafting intoxicating harmonies within the confines of rock standards, especially when they draw out the syllables such as the line “lost in your sunken eyes” just near the 1.20 mark. Look for their all female rock and roll quartet to hit stores on November 11th via the consistently reliable Empty Cellar Records.
I was really bummed when The Shes called it quits, but I’ve beenexcited by the new project formed out of the ashes, Plush. The band is working withFather Daughter Records, and this new video sets up the scene for a continuation of great sounds. For most part, the song walks that line of ethereal dream pop, floating along casually. But, as the song furthers itself, you’ll hear some sonic exploration, such as extra distortion and crashing percussive elements. The band employs all sorts of sounds on their recent Please EP…which is available now. Also, look for the band to do a run down the East Coast starting this week.
Regardless of where you are, Friday’s can be a drag. You’re almost to the weekend, but it’s not quite there; you need something to pick you up? Listen to this single from The She’s that just got tossed out. There’s a little bit of a garage-rock boogie going on, though you can still hear some soulful vocal touches that you’d expect from only the best in the genre. It’s pretty tough not to tap your toes and get down with this little jam. This number appears on the band’s Split 7″ with Dry Spells, which is being released by Empty Cellar Records on November 20th.
