Soraia Releasing New Vinyl Double-Single Next Week

Soraia is opening the new year with some new music.

The band announced Thursday, it will release its new vinyl single Jan. 8 through Wicked Cool Records. The two-song single’s a-side is its new original song ‘Tight-Lipped.’ It is accompanied by Soraia’s cover of Aerosmith’s ‘Angel,’ which features the band’s Wicked Cool label mate Jesse Wagener on guest vocals.

Pre-orders are open for the single. Audiences can stream both songs through Soraia’s official Bandcamp page.

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’ comes across as a story about a person who was head over heels with someone who was clearly not right for him/her. That realization is what is presented here, and it is done with with plenty of vim and fire from the subject, with plenty of pride, basically with the song’s subject saying without saying how glad he/she is that things did not work out in hindsight. This is an easily accessible story for any listener. Together with the song’s equally strong musical arrangement, the whole makes the song a work that guitar rock purists will appreciate.

Soraia’s cover of Aerosmith’s ‘Angel’ is worth its own listen as it stays largely true to its source material while also giving the song a welcome update. Seditious’ guitar work is right there with that of Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry while the duality in Mansour and Wagner’s vocals creates a unique vocal performance here. Rather than just re-create the airy effect of Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler’s performance in the original, the duo has crafted a performance that is tighter and possibly better than that of the original.

Wagner’s performance here follows that of her recently released original holiday single ‘What Christmas Is To Me‘ and her debut album Shoes Droppin, which she released last year.

Jessie Wagner Debuts ‘Passin’ Me By’ Video; New LP Out Now

Jessie Wagner debuted the video for her latest single last week.

Wagner debuted the video for her single ‘Passin’ Me By‘ Oct. 16. The song and its video are the fourth from Wagner’s new album Shoes Droppin, which is available now. The debut of the new single and video follow that of the album’s other singles, ‘My Darlin, My Dear,’ What You Get is What You See,’ and ‘End of Time.’

The video for Wagner’s new single finds her in an open field, sunny sky overhead as she performs her song. The footage is accompanied by video of people singing and dancing to the song in their own home videos. The upbeat sense in the song’s video helps to translate the positive vibe in the song’s musical arrangement and its equally optimistic message of looking beyond the bad in life.

The musical arrangement featured in Wagner’s new single presents plenty for audiences to appreciate. It combines some vintage R&B influences with a roots rock sound that will appeal to fans of Tedeschi Trucks Band for its whole. Wagner’s soulful vocals add in to the mix to put the finishing touch to the presentation.
