THE LADIES OF – “VOUCH FOR ME”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE
Songs filled with power-hungry guitar riffs, impeccable vocals, and thunderous grooves
A musical cocktail that combines the vibe and sounds of David Bowie, Spoon, The Bleachers, and The Killers, complete with a vigorous shake and a plastic sword garnish.
The Ladies Of… is a rock band. Plain and simple.
The core band and the production team share a diverse history between the active members; however, this is not a ‘super-group.’ Birthed in 2012, a band-like version of writers began to perform around the Southeast. With this group, you have to dig deep with each member, from James Hall, who’s had his share of wonder and fame since his days with Mary My Hope and The Pleasure Club, to Mark Patrick and Jack Massey, who were members of the seminal rock band, Storm Orphans to Jim Troglen’s musical adventures from NYC to LA back to Alabama rounding out with James Wahl who is the band’s youngest member.
The song stems from some awkward teeth gnashing, which is trying to be presented as beat-boxing. Think amateur rappers on a Yonkers (NY) street corner in 1985, spitting into cupped hands. The band took that saliva-furious lip grinding and figured it’d work well in the key of F#minor. Now that there was a single droning bass charade in play, some nonsensical loops were forced on top of one another, much akin to rickety scaffolding outside a decaying building. Being this group masquerades as a “triple guitar threat,” the noble thing to do was to make the guitars faint and borderline absent. Once all the instruments were allocated, it was more than obvious that this needed to be closer to yelling than crooning, more of a desperate proclamation than just some other soupy pop song shooting death rays. This cut was destined to be a people pleaser, full of boasts, bravado, and bliss while under a gooey tarpaulin of feel-good jams. The Ladies Of… are known for being reverse eloquent, scattered, and laden with raw irony, cheap humor, and bad choices stuffed into the bowels of a unicorn having a bad hair day.
