Joan as Police Women – Nervous

NAME: Joan as Police Women
SINGLE: Nervous
DATE: 11April2011

LABEL: Play It Again Sam


FIVE WORD REVIEW: Unconventional pop is righteous anachronism

LOCATION: Brooklyn, New York

LINE UP: Joan Wasser: songwriter/singer/guitar/piano/Wurlitzer/strings; Timo Ellis: guitar/bass/drums/vocals; Tyler Wood: moog bass/keyboards/vocals; Parker Kindred: drums/vocals.


WHAT’S THE STORY?: Joan as Police Woman releases another single from her recently released, third album ‘The Deep Field’. This time it’s a story about being anxious in a new relationship instead of pretending to be a cock-sure twit. Which is nice.

SOUNDS LIKE: Nervous manages to be sort of flowery and sleazy at the same time, but without being crass, just through its mature bar-night sound. This might be about vulnerability, but it’s not about weakness by any stretch of the imagination. It’s tough, knowing, and soulful and has a defiantly old-school feel. Moog synthesizers? Like a blast from the past, it’s pop Jim, but not as we know it. Think a slightly more whimsical Jefferson Airplane and you won’t go far wrong.

On a side note the cover art is awesome.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: you like pop sung by people, not walking billboards.
