The week before Halloween seems like the ideal time to release a song called "Witch's Back Door," and New Jersey's Tula Vera have gifted us with that. Tula Vera's song is this laid back blues rocker that is both right in that genre but with its own little twist. "Witch's Back Door" has this killer groove and blues rock guitar solos, but in this interesting little indie rock way. This is just to the left of the mainstream of blues rock, but just a little to the left. The highlights of the song are Claire Parcells' vocals and the guitar solos. The vocals alternate between this gentle and sultry sound and just erupting with a surprising power. The guitar solos are just epic in a classic dirty blues kind of way. Even though it's obviously perfect for a Halloween playlist, you'll be pulling this one out to listen well past October 31.
You can watch the video for "Witch's Back Door" below. Shape Shifter is due out November 18. For more on Tula Vera, check out the band's website.
