Tell us about your new single/album/tour?
The Shimmy Chillin’ EP contains four hot new tracks that show the band reaching new heights of songwriting – from gravey grooves and toe tapping pop down to a deliciously devilish dash of doo wop.
What’s your favourite work at this point in time?
We’re very proud of the new EP. It reveals a previously unseen side of The Rebelles that will set hearts a-flutterin’!
Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote…
Well, the first time we travelled out in the rain and snow we didn’t have no payroll! Not even no place to go!
What, or who, inspires you?
People who mean it, man.
Which song do you wish you wrote?
Soul Deep by The Box Tops. What Lester Bangs said.
How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
Whatever the opposite of quinoa is. Why? Because we’re awesome and it’s just awful.
What’s next for you?
A pair of killer live shows celebrating our EP covering north and south of the Yarra!
Northside celebrations: 5 May at Yah Yahs with The Strays; Southside celebrations: 20 May at the Flying Saucer Club with Dusty Springclean and the Pops!
What’s your scene?
That’s another thing we’ve been wondering lately. Are we crazy?
About The Rebelles
The Rebelles are super excited to announce the arrival of their latest brood of all-original rockers, the Shimmy Chillin’ EP!
It’s been nearly two years since The Rebelles’ ace debut long player Go! Rebelle! and Melbourne’s premier girlgroup sensation have clearly put that time to good use. The Shimmy
Chillin’ EP contains four hot new tracks that showcase the band’s songwriting talents – from moody grooves and bubblegum pop to deliciously devilish doo wop – and is sure to set toes a-tappin’ and hearts a-flutterin’! All in a good-bad-but-not-evil way, of course.
And as always with The Rebelles, ears everywhere are set for a treat thanks to that wall of stunning harmonies that you only get from 15 fearless women and only one band!
The Shimmy Chillin’ EP will be available on good old fashioned 7” vinyl from The Rebelles’ own online store (rebelles.com.au/store), as well as some of the hippest record shops in town. You’ll also be able to find it on iTunes, Spotify and all your favourite online services.
We just know you won’t be able to help falling in love with the tunes, and you won’t have to wait too long to hear them live.
