Is this track from a forthcoming release/existing release? This track is from my upcoming second album. I'm currently still working on the album and aiming for a mid-2016 release.
What was inspiring you during the song's writing and recording? A lot of old school rock'n'roll and jitterbug dance music. Little Richard, Wilson Pickett and Chuck Berry were big inspirations with this track.
We'll like this song if we like... Little Richard/Wilson Pickett/Chuck Berry meets Outkast.
Do you play it differently live? We've started rehearsing the song for our upcoming shows, finding ways to adapt it to a live performance due to being a two-piece. Minor changes here and there.
