The Song: “Vampire,” a languid, introspective ballad off the upcoming LP Love Wars Baby.
The Artist: Party Dolls
Who’s That: A semi-obscure supergroup combining like-minded members of The District Attorneys, Tedo Stone, Moths, Ruby the Rabbitfoot and the Archers of Loaf side project Crooked Fingers.
Sounds Like: Driving in the rain with the radio cranked up.
Fun Fact: The band got together last year when only half of The District Attorneys were available to play a Valentine’s Day gig in Athens, Georgia. Love Wars Baby, featuring a bevy of therapeutic post-breakup songs, drops on Valentine’s Day this year. Feel the love.
Songwriter says: “‘Vampire’ was an attempt to write a Valentine’s day song and not feeling up to the challenge,” admits Party Dolls’ Drew Beskin. “It was literally written while staring out of a window. I had to call it ‘Vampire’, I wouldn’t be able to forgive myself if I called it ‘Out My Window’.”
