TUNE Piney Gir - Would You Be There
Piney travels back in time using a special sunshine machine (aka an airplane to sunny Los Angeles where she sang next to a waterfall, the Hollywood sign, and a pond full of turtles), to create this retro-pop nugget “Would You Be There” full of jangling, 12-string, Byrdsian guitars and sparse, tom-led, Phil Spector-ish drums.
Piney channels a nostalgic spirit of the 60’s alongside a modern, cutting-edge… thanks to her her trusty band The Zig Zag Wanderers. The line up on the album includes Nelson Bragg (of Brian Wilson’s band) and producer Rob Campanella (from the Brian Jonestown Massacre).
The video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dvcan81TF4c&feature=youtu.be was compiled by Piney herself and was made from archived footage of beauty pageant montages.
The single, complete with b-sides, will be available online in the UK from September 10th and is kindly released by Damaged Goods.
