“Mr. Marley was, by night, Mrs. Candy on the street.”

“Drag For A Queen” by the Lavender Scare | If I’m to be honest with you, I could never understand how the song goes – and as this song is selling itself to me as a satirical story about a drag queen who finds some guy who supposedly exists up above, that is critical. So, well, it’s off to how this new (debut!) single from LA band the Lavender Scare sounds. It’s boozy. It’s playful, which just adds to the gravity of the situation – and by gravity, I mean either of the satirical kind or the serious kind. The band, then – formed last year, core members James Delos Reyes and Luis Servin. I feel terrible for not really understanding the lyrics upon learning their songs are partly based on James’ experiences around his sexual orientation. But I guess the muddle is the point here. A good, boozy song, nonetheless. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
