Today, Norwalk, CT-based rockers Goose release the second song from their eagerly awaited new album, SHENANIGANS NITE CLUB. Hitting that sweet spot where rock met disco in the late 70s, the slinky funk pocket groove of "So Ready," made indelible by its catchy wide lapel melody lines and liquified guitars, is available now at all DSPs and streaming services. An animated official music video that harkens back to the feverish Saturday nights of the dancing days of yesteryear is available for streaming via Goose's YouTube channel.
WATCH "SO READY"
“It’s about a guy at this hometown party,” guitarist/vocalist Rick Mitarotonda reveals. “There are all of these people he hasn’t seen in a while and a girl he has unfinished business with. He always had a thing for her. It’s about seeing her, having a moment on the dance floor, and rekindling whatever was there. It’s come to take on other meanings to us as well though. It’s captured some of the excitement of going for it and all of the possibility and wonder of building a band these past few years.”
SHENANIGANS NITE CLUB is Goose's second studio LP and first full-length collection in more than five years. It was heralded last month with the release of its first song, “Spirit of the Dark Horse," and arrives everywhere on Friday, June 4. Pre-orders are available now.
