July 14: Republican Hair Releases The Prince and The DukeRead More
Luke Dick’s new wave high energy pop ala The Cars, Talking Heads, The Clash, etc. After releasing their high energy LP High and Tight in late 2016, Republican Hair are already slated to release their sophomore EP The Prince and the Duke, a four-song homage to Prince and Bowie on vinyl and digitally. “Miss Prince” a Prince-infused new wave banger giving a nod to the quirk of David Byrne and Andre 3000. “Constellation” is Joy Division-esque conversation with the constellation named for Bowie posthumously.
Luke Dick is a songwriter/artist/filmmaker out of Nashville. Although he has cuts on major country records (Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, etc.), Dick is more eclectic artist and storyteller than twang. Written while he was hustling between NYC boroughs as a philosophy professor, his last DIY record, Abraco, was an indie-folk exploration inspired equally by New York’s East Village and eccentric folk of Harry Nilsson, Labi Siffre, and Nick Drake. Dick is currently finishing a documentary (with an accompanying soundtrack) entitled Red Dog, a This-American-Life-style depiction of his youth spent in a topless bar, where his mother worked. Release date expected in early 2018.
