Once again ripping up old school archetypes and reinventing them, the group—Molly Sides [vocals], Whitney Petty [guitar], Leah Julius [bass], and Ruby Dunphy [drums]—take to the desert for the Roadhouse meets West Side Story inspired video.
On the video Molly Sides noted: “Making a music video is like adding the missing ingredient to a sonic recipe. ‘Speed Queen’ is a high octane rebellious story of desire; an aural vision and a labor of love. The energy behind the scenes was intoxicating and we hope that everyone who watches feels and tastes the wild concoction that is ‘Speed Queen.’ And may even want to join the journey of these rebels.”
The video, which premiered on Refinery 29, begins under the red hot Sedona, Arizona sun (as the first line states), where a hyper-charged narrative unfolds as the drifter played by Whitney Petty meets the “Speed Queen,” played by Molly Sides. It mixes rock-n-roll, leather, bar fights, and an epic love story all wrapped to make one killer video. “Speed Queen” produced by Sylvia Massy [Johnny Cash, Tool] is the first of the band’s string of new music coming soon. Check out “Speed Queen”Here! Stay tuned for a whole lot more…
Thunderpussy. If Thor’s Hammer of the Gods from “Immigrant Song” landed in the hands of four wise, willful, and wild women? Well, it would sound something like Thunderpussy. The quartet—Molly Sides [vocals], Whitney Petty [guitar], Leah Julius [bass], and Ruby Dunphy [drums]—do the most rock ‘n’ roll thing possible and quite literally fuck up every rock ‘n’ roll stereotype you know to be true, piercing the halls of Valhalla in the process. The Seattle-based group turned into a quiet phenomenon with the endorsement of Rolling Stone and Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready as well as a string of already legendary performances under their high-waisted belts. Look out for more music from Thunderpussy soon!
