She Loves You - Single Review: Dirty Orlean

27 Mar 2019 // A review by Paul Goddard

She Loves You are one of the most exciting bands in New Zealand right now. Their first show back in 2014 was a sell out and it has been an upward trajectory for them since then.

Some great live shows with a mixture of bands has expanded their influences and one of the most exciting aspects of She Loves You is you can expect the unexpected. Their new single Dirty Orlean is a sassy, rockabilly tinged affair with one of the best intro's I have heard in a long time. It is simple and effective as the guitars stab in over a rocking drum beat and immediately you are swept up in this song that is almost too hot to handle.

It is primal as the song twists and turns and I challenge anyone to stand still while listening. Dirty Orlean is an instant mood changer and one of those songs where everything is close to perfection. All the musical elements are combined in a way that no one thing stands out above the rest. Sure, the vocals are amazing but so is the drumming, the guitars, the songwriting. There is so much going on. Blues melds into that rockabilly beat all pushed along with an indie rock sensibility Dirty Orlean knows when push and when to hold back it knows when to tease and when to explode.

It is all over too soon and leaves you wanting more.

She Loves You have done it again. They are constantly evolving, pushing the boundaries but where they have an advantage is they know how to write great songs like this. Simple, effective songs that make you feel something. They are getting better all the time and Dirty Orlean is a classic which, if it gets played too much, could be the cause of a small population boom in NZ.

Rating: ( 5 / 5 )
 

About She Loves You

The Alt Rock mind child spawned out of the loins that are 2am screamers, late night wine-o's, drunken demos, Thai take out, and a deep appreciation for that questionable but lovable 2008 emo phase and you get the eclectic sound of these SLY babes.

She Loves You hail from New Zealand. A fast-talking all-action girl group that are changing everything you think you know about females playing rock & roll.

Inspired by late nights, wine, and a mutual love for the Arctic Monkeys, this electrical storm came together in early 2014 when founding members Madeline Berry, Jessie Booth and previous members, Tash Easey and Anna Loveys wanted to create a loud avenue of musical exploration and madness.

Blue River Baby - Single Review: Walk of Shame
15 Apr 2019 // by Paul Goddard
Blue River Baby have a goal to get people moving by creating songs that make people move and playing them well to as many people as possible. It is a simple goal but one that they achieve well as they recently showed when they played to 20,000 people on NYE in Nelson.

Ben Ruegg - EP Review: If I Had A Delorean
15 Apr 2019 // by Paul Goddard
Have you ever had those moments where you look back on a time in your life where everything you remember from that those moments just seemed to be great? Of course, those good times can’t be pinned down to a specific moment or era.

DRXNES - Single/Video Review: Rattlesnake
04 Apr 2019 // by Paul Goddard
DRXNES have caused quite a stir since forming a few years ago and for good reason. They have worked bloody hard and released some great music accompanied by well-produced videos.

Undercut - Single Review: Luckily
27 Mar 2019 // by Paul Goddard
There is something a little bit different about this track by Undercut. It is hard to put your finger on, it's not one part alone that stands out but the sum of all the parts adds up to something very good indeed.

Fallstate - Single/Video Review: Who The Fuck Is Cameron Brookes?
15 Mar 2019 // by Paul Goddard
I like Fallstate. Their live show is full of energy and mayhem and mixes a harder edge with the pop rock blast.

This new single Pass On The Flag, from Auckland's Outside In is a grower. Produced by Dave Rhodes, it was always going to sound great.

Amanaki - EP Review: Immutable
08 Mar 2019 // by Paul Goddard
What is it with Hamilton and its ability to create some of the best Hardcore bands in New Zealand? Maybe like the way all the hotels and shops turn their backs on the mighty Waikato river, the people who form/join bands there turn their noses up at what is going on with the “I wanna get played on the Rock” mentality of some of the more well-known Auckland acts?

Suckafish - EP Review: Berley Bomb
25 Feb 2019 // by Paul Goddard
When this first assaulted my eardrums, I thought fuck no here we go again. Cheesy vocals with equally cheesy lyrics and a punk beat pushing a turd uphill making a noise that could almost make Deja Voodoo sound good.
