Los Angeles rock band Bocce has released their debut album, “Good for You“, on June 2nd. Led by a female vocalist, the album combines crooner punk, doo-wop, and early 2000s alternative rock, influenced by bands like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, No Doubt, the Strokes, and Le Tigre.
Formed in 2022, Bocce consists of Sarah Shotwell, David Provenzano, and Christopher Keene. Shotwell handles lyrics, Provenzano focuses on melodies, and Keene oversees production. The album was recorded in Chico, California at Keene’s studio. The lyrics in “Good for You” draw inspiration from punk, metal, Pre-Raphaelite art, and gothic literature. The songs explore themes of mythology, mysticism, and the paranormal, with a touch of modern disillusionment.
“Scared“, the one I brought you today, is a 60s-inspired pop track about an unhinged Jane Eyre fan. Freshly psychedelic, it sounds both modern and old-school, with hints of 90’s radio hits and a futuristic gaze into what rock-based music should sound like nowadays. A rich combo between yesterday and today! The album’s title track, “Good for You” criticises nouveau-riche suburbia and it’s overarching theme revolves around a defiant and underestimated woman breaking free from societal expectations.
