In the tradition of Daft Punk, Chromeo, and early Janet Jackson comes Megan Vice, the gritty glam diva whose new album Spread The News is where future pop meets retro. “The overall sound of the album is funky and flirtatious,” she says. “It’s about sexual empowerment; loving and owning yourself”. The album includes the groovilicious anthem, “All of the Time”, and features the talents of artists The Golden Pony, French Horn Rebellion, Young Science and Fake Money. Megan Vice’s “Spread The News” releases July 15th, via Brooklyn indie Peace Bisquit.
“I wanted these songs to take a spunkier, gutsier turn from some of my previous material”, continues Megan Vice from her Brooklyn home. “I was born at the wrong time”, she reflects. “I should have been dancing with Downtown Julie Brown on the platform stages of Club MTV!”
The album’s first single, 'All of the Time', is about being into someone and owning the attraction with every fiber of your being. “It's inspired by a relationship I had with a friend where there was a lot of sexual tension,” explains Vice. “He lives in LA so it was mostly a digital thing where we'd flirt heavy via phone and text. We were constantly teasing the idea of hooking up and dating for real, if and when we found ourselves living in the same city. So the song was a product of all the built up sexual energy I had at the time,” she laughs.
“I wanted it to feel like you were watching an eighties film, like you just popped in a 'Pretty in Pink' or 'Weird Science’ VHS,” she says. “Since the song is about a growing coast-to-coast digital romance, I wanted the visuals to express an ongoing fantasy, an alternate reality between me and my male counterpart (played by Gio Tuccio).”
