The Gossip often nods to the dance punk craze of the last few years, but in place of razor precision they offer an almost sludgy sound that hints at electric blues and heavy metal, while also paying tribute to the riot grrl past of their label (Kill Rock Stars) and their adopted hometown (Olympia, Wash). This is the title track from their fourth studio record.
