Say She She: “Pink Roses”

By: Jack Anderson

Girl groups of the 1970s. By definition, they don’t make ’em like they used to. But considering the enduring energy of golden era disco-R&B icons like Chic, Rufus, and The Supremes, someone’s gotta step up to the plate and carry the torch, right? Fortunately, three of Brooklyn’s finest continue to keep that five-decade-old disco-funk fire alive.

Spearheaded by Chicano Batman alum Piya Malik, 79.5 veteran Nya Gazelle Brown, and relative newcomer Sabrina Mileo Cunningham, Say She She adds a bit of extra heat to discodelic’s existing girlish grace. Say She She’s 4:3 ratio of instrumentalists to vocalists makes for some really fun arrangements and dynamics, not to mention plenty of killer karaoke tracks to try out harmonies on.

Amidst their ascent to the Big Apple’s crowning stem, Say She She just shared their debut album Prism last month. At just under thirty minutes, this 8-track will transport you straight back to the turn of the ’70s/’80s decade (as will their latest single “Wrap Myself Up In Your Love”, which just dropped last Tuesday), albeit with contemporary psych-soul and electro-lo-fi sensibilities. But as we kick off 2022’s holiday gauntlet, we recommend a wholesome sprig of Prism spring for your Thanksgiving cornucopia. Produced by Chicano Batman center Bardo Martinez, “Pink Roses” packs an emotional post-disco punch that champions balance after passing. So if you’re missing a few folks from the dinner table tomorrow, you can still give thanks to artists like this who know exactly what you’re going through.

Which brings us to Wil Brookhart. […]
