All Things Blue – Legend Of Chav

‘Legend Of Chav’ is the latest taster from Los Angeles band All Things Blue’s upcoming debut album ‘Get Bit’ that is set for release on December 11th. The track is accompanied by a fun home-made music video, showing the band cavorting in the Californian desert, opening with the declaration “I’m drunk!”

The song benefits from an extended intro, which lasts until the beat kicks in at around 1:20. It’s a fun and catchy song, with riffs owing more than a nod to 90’s indie rock and pulsating vocals from frontwoman India Coombs. I’ve added this one to one of my playlists already – it’s a great listen.

The song originated six years ago, from an old demo India and guitarist Jon Joseph created. About the track, Coombs says: “ I actually wrote the lyrics for ‘Chav’ when I was about 16 after I read a story about Marie Laveau: a midwife and Voodoo practitioner from New Orleans. As for the name, our old drummer Justin Chavez cruised by the studio and I told him he had to name the track, hence ‘Legend of Chav’… it would’ve felt wrong not to include Chav on our debut, if nothing else, because it’s extra fun to play inebriated.”
