“After Me” comes from Philadelphia, all female group Louie Louie. In what they characterize as a mix of Sixties soul, vintage rock and post punk, it’s as much of a performance as it is a production. With their debut album release coming early in 2017, and features around the web, traction is picking up.
Often clad in handcrafted suits—made by drummer Jenna Robb—the four-piece come as a pack of “mature but bratty, vulnerable, and powerful” women. Typically found singing about social issues, love, and even outer space, they sing about humanity.
In what may seem like a familiar sound of the past, claims of modernity and uniqueness are reasonable. “After Me” doesn’t quite hit the level of excitement and inspiration we find in their May release of “Miles Around” (found below), we’re still fond of it, and more than willing to give them a plug.
“After Me” is a part of Louie Louie’s Feb. 10th release of Friend Of A Stranger, coming out via Born Losers Records. As always, love can be sent to this emergent group on Bandcamp, and they have a good Facebook page as well.
