Download: Queen of Jeans – Dance (Get Off Your Ass)

11760037_433679806817015_7545346456340804919_nFor those old enough to recall a time nearly a decade earlier when one prominent music site anointed three pre-fab ladies from Brighton, England (backed by four male musicians under the direction of a music promoter) as frontrunners in the revival of the 1960s girl group movement, you should also remember months later one Amy Winehouse came along with Back to Black, making the Pipettes’ aping of the Shangri-Las and Ronettes sound as authentic as Phil Collins (for those even older) covering the Supremes’ “You Can’t Hurry Love.”

Welcome to 2015, when Philadelphia trio Queen of Jeans reboot a similar vibe with their debut single, “Dance (Get Off Your Ass).” Antithetical in every sense, Miriam Devora, Matheson Glass and Nina Scotto mix vocal melodies with scruffy garage rock, kicking a hole in Phil Spector’s “Wall of Sound,” albeit with Chuck Taylors rather than high heels. Shirking pop — and punk — convention, “Dance (Get Off Your Ass)” clocks in at more than five minutes, ensuring even the most reluctant wallflower is moving their feet.

Subtle in tone yet subversive in nature, you can stream/download “Dance (Get Off Your Ass)” below.
