about The Gossip

For the past five years Arkansas’ The Gossip have been spreading their hybrid of punk and r&b all over the place and the rumors are starting again! The band is hitting the road for a fall tour, gearing up for the release of their new album in February, and releasing their first ever dance 12”. The band has added new drummer Hannah Blilie (Shoplifting, ex-Chromatics) and their sound has evolved into the dirtiest thundering r&b footstomper sure to take over every dancefloor.

The song was recorded by Guy Picciotto (Fugazi) and Ryan Hadlock at Seattle’s Bear Creek Studios, the same place as Lionel Richie’s “Dancing on the Ceiling”, and Lionel himself would not be able to resist this groove. The 12” also includes a remix by electronic punks Le Tigre that transforms the song into a pounding electro beat with synth hooks and Beth’s incomparable voice. Brace and Kim Gordon did the artwork for the single.
