Big Takeover is delighted to host the premiere of the seductively slinky number “Hey Hello” from the album. The single will be officially available for purchase on June 4th, but you can hear it here in all its delectably cheeky glory.
NYC-based marrieds and renowned musicians Jon Spencer (The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Boss Hog, Pussy Galore, Heavy Trash, The Honeymoon Killers) and Cristina Martinez (Boss Hog, Pussy Galore, The Honeymoon Killers) get top billing on vocals, along with Jacob Gram Alsing and Mikkel Borg Bjergsø on instrumentation.
Charged with an undeniable magnetic attraction, a flirty Spencer and Martinez flit through the simmering surf/spaghetti western hybrid track, exchanging mainly the words, “Hey” and “Hello”_. The lyrics may be spare, but they’re laden with desirous innuendo and the intent of good times ahead, once they get past the introductions.
Yebo gives some insight about the song, explaining ““Hey Hello” is a new tune graced with the alluring sexyfied vocal stylings of Jon Spencer and Cristina Martinez. The couple – also known as Mr. and Mrs. Punk – have been friends of The Tremolo Beer Gut for decades and both The Great Nalna [and I] also served as side men in Spencer’s band Heavy Trash.”
“The tune is classic TBG surf ‘n’ western. Big sweeping guitar melody in the verse and more tight pumping energy in the chorus where Spencer and Martinez ask the age-old questions that generations of flirting lovers have been posing. Questions filled with innuendo that are in essence also answers. Hey? Hello? Yes: Hey! Hello! Let’s go. Your place or mine? How about right now, right here? Enough said. It’s all in the delivery and [Spencer and Martinez] serve it up niiiice.” – bigtakeover.com
