Channelling their inner rock’n'roll to extreme, last year Kelli Mayo of Skating Polly did a ‘Dave Grohl’ after tearing her knee ligament on stage. Though that seems to just be the beginning, with their new album dropping, it won’t be long before you’re thrown into a beer splattered mosh pit. Sisters always have each other’s backs. – NME.
Those are prophetic words from NME as Mayo and Peyton Bighorse put the finishing touches on their new album The Big Fit coming March 25th via Chap Stereo (April 8th UK). The album is a scorcher and was produced by Kliph Scurlock (Flaming Lips) and mixed by Paul Kolderie (Radiohead, Dinosaur Jr.) & Jim Vollentine (Spoon, White Denim).
“I wrote ‘Perfume For Now‘ hoping to come up with an L7 anthem type chrous and noisy basitar solo,” explains Kelli Mayo to Upset Magazine. “It’s about trusting someone with all your heart and then realizing they’re despicable and not worthy of your admiration.”
We don’t know about Kelli’s heart, but happily her knee has fully heeled and the duo will be in fine form in a city near you. You can catch them March 23rst at the Treefort Music Fest in Boise, ID, Apr 23rst at the Norman Music Fest in Norman, OK and a summer tour with Deerhoof just for starters. Don’t miss their excellent new video for the tune directed by Nickolas Rossi (dir. of acclaimed Elliott Smith doc Heaven Adores You) HERE!
