Lady Legs – No JobRelease Date: November 25, 2017
Following on from the release of their acclaimed debut UK single ‘Real Thing’, Birmingham Alabama’s Lady Legs have announced their second single, the bright and brilliantly jagged ‘No Job’ taken from their forthcoming debut LP Holy Heatwave set for release next year.Lady Legs have been writing wonderfully off-kilter poppy garage rock since their formation in 2012. In the five years since then, they've gone from playing college house parties to filling rooms at some of Birmingham's most esteemed venues and creating significant buzz at South By Southwest.
Their raw songs embrace a similar spirit to the likes of Twin Peaks and Mac DeMarco, while taking inspiration from the band's shared love of The Strokes, Rolling Stones, Pixies and Real Estate. “’No Job’ is about being a college graduate pursuing a career in what you’re passionate about instead of what you’ve studied for,” explains vocalist John Sims. “It's about doing what you love when nothing else makes sense." The music, combined with Sims's playful lyrics about love and the munchies, makes Lady Legs seem fun and carefree - but behind that fun and carefree exterior is a sort of magic, a musical tightness forged by four friends.
"Full of slacker charm and jangling garage rock sensibilities, it’s an ode to doing what you love set against the kind of nonchalantly excellent sounds that tumble out with the utmost ease"− DIY
