Gossip come out swinging with their riotous new punk-pop rebel rouser ‘Real Power’.
Serving as the title track and second single from their forthcoming album, this foot-stomping barnstormer finds frontwoman Beth Ditto in fine voice, blending soulful vocals with snarling attitude. She delivers an empowering message of people power and fighting for justice when backed against the wall.
The production captures Gossip’s raw, sweat-drenched live energy with juggernaut riffs and relentless dance beats. It’s a call to action to own your power and make a stand when society needs rearranging – something Ditto has witnessed first-hand in her hometown of Portland. Even in volatile times, Gossip cram ‘Real Power‘ with infectious joy and celebration of the human spirit. They continue to evolve while remaining true to their classic dance-punk sound.
The accompanying Cody Critcheloe-directed video pays tribute to the band’s thunderous live shows. Gossip sound reinvigorated and eager to reckon with the system on this gutsy single. ‘Real Power’ is a pivotal and triumphant new chapter.
