“No one wants to love someone who don’t love you” Ain’t that the truth? And there are a lot of truths on Esmé Patterson’s third solo record We Were Wild. The full album will be out on June 10th but you can preorder your digital copy via iTunes starting tomorrow or secure a vinyl in the Grand Jury store right now.
But thankfully you don’t have to wait until June for a sample of Esmé’s brand of brash, brassy songwriting. Noisey premiered her first single “Feel Right” off the album and you can listen here. There’s feedback, a snappy melody, and deliciously gravelly vocals. Noisey called the track, “pop with a smidge of punk. Pop with claws.” And we agree. Watch out, this one will grab ahold of you and not let go.
So when you inevitably find yourself humming this earworm, go relieve that cognitive itch and catch Esmé on tour. She’ll be rolling through a bar near you with San Fermin. Find the full schedule here.
