Leggy’s new track, “Girls Like Us” starts us off with big heaping plate of ‘tude. “There are plenty of fish in the sea/But girls like us don’t grow on trees,” Veronique Allaer tells us pointedly throughout the song, taunting us with vibrantly direct vocals. The song has a perfect proportion of surf to punk rock, with Allaer’s distinct vocals driving the whole thing forward; pay attention to her vocal inflections, they make everything so much better. Clocking in at two minutes, the Cincinnati outfit is making a statement here: they mean business, they’re ready to party, and they won’t take none of your bullshit neither.
“Girls Like Us” will be available on their new EP, which was produced again by John Hoffman and Jerri Queen (of Tweens) and will be out later this month. Leggy is currently in the midst of a Canadian/Midwest tour, you can see the remaining dates after the stream.
