Song Premiere: Gasoline Lollipops “Mustangs”
Colorado-based band Gasoline Lollipops combines the sincerity of dirt-floor folk with the energy and rebelliousness of punk. It’s an all-new incarnation of alt-country that’s high-energy and heartfelt, just like the American highway’s soundtrack. This year marked the release of the GasPops’ debut full-length album, Resurrection, and the band’s first-ever vinyl release, Soul Mine, will be released at the Fox Theatre in Boulder on Saturday, December 16. Today, the sextet premiere a new track, “Mustangs,” a scorching blues-tinged punk country rocker that sounds especially good turned up to ten as you drive down the open road.
The band had this to say about the raucous track, “The track “Mustangs” from the upcoming Gasoline Lollipops album Soul Mine is a debaucherous road trip through the dirty South, as heard through the driving pandemonium of a GasPops engine. Robert Louis Cole, who traveled the South on a one-car tour with Gasoline Lollipops frontman Clay Rose a few years ago, wrote “Mustangs” as a sparse acoustic blues and we’re honored to give it a rollicking full-band treatment on Soul Mine. Somewhere between Hunter Thompson and Muddy Waters, “Mustangs” is one of our most fun songs to perform live, and we had a particularly good time playing it at Red Rocks a few months ago. “
Colorado Daily readers voted Gasoline Lollipops “Best Local Musician/Group” for 2017, and in 2016, Denver Westword named Gasoline Lollipops Colorado’s Best Country Artist. 2014 and 2015 brought multiple awards and accolades to the Gasoline Lollipops, including being selected to play six showcases in Austin during SXSW 2014; getting voted “Best Local Musician/Group” in the Colorado Daily’s 2014 and 2015 polls; being selected as one of only six bands across Colorado for the highly coveted SpokesBUZZ Emerging Artists Incubator program; and winning the Oskar Blues Battle of the Bands in 2015.
