Lady Parts -- "Shrill" [CS] SAD039
Lady Parts is a 3 piece group from Philadelphia, PA made up of Gracie Clements, Mary Rush, and Christine Oglesby. The band formed in 2014 after meeting at Temple University, where all of the girls attended school. Lady Parts began as a 4 piece acoustic group which brought together each girls’ original songs. Tessa, an original member, had to move home to Virginia, leaving the 3 current members.
The band collaboratively writes songs with an indie pop-punk vibe, once referred to as “punk-lite”, with a different lead vocalist every couple of songs and 3-part harmonies. The grrls also like to switch up their instruments every now and then. Michael Colavita of The Deli describes their music as “heartfelt, attitude-smeared rock that you’ll subconsciously replay throughout the day." Their song lyrics touch on feminist perspectives, romantic relationships, and the trials and tribulations of being a human in the world. Their sound is influenced by artists such as Girlpool, Waxahatchee, Blink 182 and also by gin and tonics and cats.
