Tomorrow is the first day of Pride Month. As always, Rock the Pigeon is committed to covering incredible queer artists and bands. We are starting off the pride coverage with an awesome band out of Toronto called Low Life Lolas. They have recently released a brand new single called “Grime” which is about queer love. It’s romantic and soulful and full of brilliant musical moments. The song hits the speakers hard with shining vocals and distorted guitars playing unique and melodic riffs. The bass and drums are perfectly in rhythm and the bass line is constantly grooving. The song feels like a fusion of several different genres including indie rock, soul, blues. Even elements of jazz can be heard. Start off your pride month right, celebrate queer artists, lift up queer voices, and get into Low Life Lolas!
Listen to GRIME on Spotify now:
“GRIME is kind of my queer anthem….Every summer I go home [to Thunder Bay, Ontario] and spend about a month in the bush with my dogs and my partner. It’s about a dirty kind of bush, queer, let-your-hair-grow kind of love–embracing that, and going against any sort of conventional lifestyle or conformity.” – songwriter Renée Parr
Grime is the lead single off of Low Life Lolas upcoming EP titled ANCHORS. It is due out on July 24th.
“My partner and I celebrate Pride by covering our faces in glitter and being unapologetically ourselves. It’s unfortunate that we won’t be able to celebrate with our friends/chosen family this year, but when this is all over, we plan to shine our rainbows 10x as bright.” – Melissa, Low Life Lolas
