Tancred’s ‘Something Else’, featuring Potty Mouth, is sweet, unpretentious alt-rock with a personally-oriented approach. Behind a fun, well-made music video, this group has a solid, if not kind of derivative, take on modern trends in the genre. The simple, lo-fi bedroom pop these women are going for is deeply reminiscent of Soccer Mommy. There’s a clear sense of the group as focused on social justice and female empowerment, but this is couched in a more personally-oriented, poppy lyrical sensibility that seems in debt to 2000s indie groups like Death Cab For Cutie and The Strokes. The broad, vaguely feminist aesthetic can be traced through more recent pop figures like Hayley Williams of Paramore back to Avril Lavigne and maybe even characters like Missy Elliott or Lauryn Hill. Anyways, this is a neat track from an up-and-coming band. Check out ‘Something Else’ below!
