She's: Cherry Red / Heliotrope
Title: Cherry Red / Heliotrope
Product Type: 7-INCH SINGLE
Introducing a new split 45 via Empty Cellar Records featuring harmony-heavy San Francisco legacies The She's and The Dry Spells. Tight vocal harmonies, ambitious musical arrangements, and diverse influences meet on both sides of this record in a pairing that won't disappoint. A song for the party and one for the comedown. The She's light things up with their ever expanding range: the group that got it's start while in middle school have brought their steadily amassed stylistic and dynamic breadth to the track, "Cherry Red," produced by Patrick Brown at Different Fur. It bursts open with with a driving surf beat cut with the laser-guided vocal counterpoint The She's are known for. Aggressive Go-Go's, The Breeders at the beach, Shonen Knife in the Golden State. Call it what you want; It's irresistible. After winding through a dizzying set of changes, the She's pull the rug out from under, dropping you (along with the beat) into a half-time dream that would make the Shangri-La's smile, but also calls to mind English guitar bands of the 90's, a reference reinforced by singer Hannah Valente musing about painting her lips the classic color that gives this track it's name. Then it's back to the beat!
