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.

nolo: “Appetite”

If you’re looking to get out of the house this evening and support some local music without just padding the band’s drink tab, we’ve got just the thing for you. Consider this our official nod to nolo, an Austin alt-rock quartet whose four members first met up in rehab a half decade back. Don’t worry; […]

Honey Hideouts: “Goodbyes”

By nature, the id of a creative is often occupied by abstract fragments, waiting to be manifested. But sometimes the spark to bring something new to fruition only arrives with a change of scenery. And a recent case of such comes courtesy of Denmark’s Markus Artved. An accomplished producer who’s lent his ear to Lukas […]

Gary Devlin: “Waves”

We’ll never deny the merits of lyrical therapy. Then again, the staying power and worldwide accessibility of meditative genres like classical and jazz has little to do with curated words. And more often than not with that universality, comes positivity. Cut to El Paso-born, Arlington-based songwriter-guitarist Gary Devlin. Sure, Gary’s got the makings of a great […]

The Tibbs: “Ain’t It Funny”

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again; the retro-soul renaissance of the last 10-15 years has been one of the most refreshing trends to break into the mainstream. And it’s been especially intriguing to hear countries outside of the U.S. tackle that classic Motown/Stax sound with their own takes on those brassy, upbeat, […]

Cinnamontal: “P.R.P.P.P.”

If the corporate powers that be haven’t already ushered in the official start of Christmastime, December 1st will certainly flip the switch. So might as well ignite the yule log early with some new, locally-sourced aural ornaments, starting today with Denise Murray. Better known by her nickname Cinnamon, and by extension, her creative handle Cinnamontal, […]
