listen hear! Song of the Day: Blondshell "Joiner"
WFPK’s listen hear! Song of the Day spotlights a song we like weekdays at 11:10.
There has been quite the buzz surrounding Los Angeles singer/songwriter Blondshell (aka Sabrina Teitelbaum) recently, and for good reason. Last week she released her highly-anticipated self-titled debut album on Partisan Records.
One of our favorite tracks on the album is “Joiner.” Speaking about the song, Teitelbaum said, “I was listening to a lot of Britpop when I wrote this song. A lot of those bands (the Verve, Pulp, Suede, Blur, etc.) channeled dark subject matter, drugs, and all this dirty stuff, but with a fun acoustic guitar under it. I was listening to the Replacements, too. That’s what this song was inspired by sonically. I wanted it to feel like you’re watching HBO, where even though it’s heavy, it’s still a good time.”
