In what continues to be a massive breakout year for disco-pop outfit Say She She, the group just announced that they will release their sophomore album Silver on September 29, 2023 on Karma Chief Records — 16 original sounds packed with feverish, operatic, and entirely mesmerizing harmonies that capture the ecstasy of disco, evoking a distinct Studio 54 era nostalgia while fearlessly addressing important matters that demand attention.
Tackling their experiences as modern femmes, Silver brims with the anger and confidence of women coming into their own. The album opens with the fiery incantation that is “Reeling,” singing “Kick the door down, smash the ceiling, leave ‘em reeling!” and setting the mood for a musical journey imbued with political grit.
“Echo in The Chamber” addresses gun control while “NORMA,” the groups protest anthem written in response to the decision to overturn Roe v Wade, is an urgent call to action to support the protection of women’s rights and preserving the right to choose. It was first released on Bandcamp exclusively on June 21, just days before the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v Wade was made.
Since the release of their debut album last year, Say She She made their national TV debut on CBS Saturday, played a sold-out Brooklyn Steel with Daptone’s breakout act Thee Sacred Souls in January, opened the ‘23 Central Park Summerstage season in May.
They also just made their Glastonbury debut, performing three times in 24 hours. They’ve also emerged as darlings of tastemaker radio, performing sessions and receiving significant spins from the likes of KEXP, WFUV — who selected the group as featured performers in last year’s annual Holiday Cheer event at the Beacon Theater — and WXPN, including a World Cafe Live performance.
Their journey to the top of the indie scene has been swift, but they have only furthered their collective backgrounds in education, speechwriting, and nonprofit work, using their music as calls to action.
“We will not go back!!,” the trio cries in perfect, compelling harmony.
