Independent rock band Soraia is making waves with its latest single.
The band’s new single, ‘Tight-Lipped,’ has reached #32 on Billboard’s latest Rock Indicator Charts. That is according to information in a news release distributed Monday about the band’s new single.
Soraia debuted its new single along with a b-side — a cover of Aerosmith’s ‘Angel’ — in February. Audiences can stream and download both songs here. The band debuted the companion video for ‘Tight-Lipped’ through Billboard along with the song’s premiere.
Front woman ZouZou Mansour was upbeat in talking about the attention that the band’s new single is receiving.
“The whole band is on fire with how well our newest single is doing!,” said Mansour. “From getting our video debut in Billboard, to a feature article in Loudwire, these are all first accomplishments we have been wanting for a long time. It’s thrilling to watch the song ascend on the Billboard Rock Indicator chart, and be added to Active Rock Commercial Radio Stations across the US. With every new release, we grow. Our fans, our label, and our team are who we really need to thank with all our hearts. Thank you, and can’t wait to see where the road takes us! Still we rise….”
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Tight-Lipped’ boasts the same raw, bluesy classic rock style and sound that the band presented in its 2020 album Dig Your Roots, the band’s third album. Vocalist ZouZou Mansour’s performance pairs with that of guitarist Nick Seditious and drummer Brianna Sig to make the steady rocker an infectious work that will stick with listeners. Bassist Travis Smith adds his own touch to the song to completely flesh out the arrangement.
The lyrical theme that accompanies ‘Tight-Lipped’ is something of a socially conscious message according to Mansour.
“‘Tight-Lipped’ is about a woman who politely refuses to challenge the status quo and direction of her life,” she said. “It’s a final recognition of the part she has played in her own oppressive censoring – a soulful rebuke of her former beliefs on how to live. But by the end of the song, it becomes a triumphant declaration of who she now is: “‘Meet Ophelia–no more promises. I refuse to be so tight-lipped.’”
In other news, Soraia is scheduled to perform in support of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts Nov.21 at the Palace Theatre in Albany, NY.
