The travelling Whistlestop Rock Festival was derailed along with everything else this spring. The festival featured local New England bands The Chelsea Curve, Cold Expectations, Field Day, Heather Rose In Clover, Justine and The Unclean, Kid Gulliver, The Knock Ups, Linnea’s Garden, and Tiger Bomb playing in different cities throughout New England with special guests. Keeping the spirit of that festival alive is "Queen of the Drive-In" which features an all-star line up of Whistlestop Rock bandmembers. Kid Gulliver's Simone Berk takes on lead vocals. This is a wonderfully fun song that is a little too poppy to be garage rock and a little too upbeat to be dream pop, even though it's all of these. Plus, with a chorus that features the lyrics "I'm the Dry Hump Queen of the Drive In / Squeeze over the handbrake and we'll both win," this is just a simple, fun rock song, just the kind we need in a summer like this one.
You can listen to "Queen of the Drive-In" below. The song is available now via Bandcamp. For more on Whistlestop Rock, check out their website.
