I’ve got this feeling that Andy Allo is going to lead us to some groovy and fun places with her second album (first, if we’re only counting things having to do with Prince), Superconducter. All we’ve gotten from that album is the promise that it will be good (as are all things having to do with Prince), and this teaser video for “People Pleaser.”
First of all, you know you’re doing something right if you can please just by teasing, amiright? Mind you, I’m talking about music here. Andy is a beautiful face (and body) but the teaser spotlights Allo’s music more than anything else. In fact, we get more of a poplocking, crisscrossing New Power Generation in the short 52-second teaser than we do of Andy’s face, which is blurred or turned away half the time. I love her elusiveness, but the real catch is the near-minute of clapping hi-hat, snare, bass–and these blazing horns that introduce Andy Allo and her forthcoming album. Second, you know you’re doing something right when the group that backed Prince for 19 years is now backing you. Come on, now.
Superconductor is to be released on Prince’s label NPG on November 20. Until then, enjoy that album’s first single “People Pleaser” by buying it on iTunes.
