about

"We came from Hollywood to golden shower you" commands front woman Lisa Dahl on the first single for the dirty blues infused, electropop-punk outfit, The Dirty Knees. The song opens with honeyed vocals lingering over a guitar rift that recalls The Cramps "Like a Bad Girl Should" and builds to its own brand of chaos with heart pounding drums, grungy, dizzying guitars, and banshee shouts.

lyrics

It’s a religion, not a direction
It’s here to get you, like an infection
They crossed the mountain just to devour you
We came from Hollywood to golden shower you

Everyone wants to make the scene
On the back of a magazine
How’d you get so squeaky clean?
On the back of a magazine uh huh
On the back of a magazine

They’ve found a halo that could encircle you
Now the children, they start to bother you
Just put your coat on, my god you’re fabulous
I know a doctor, he’ll get you out of this

Everyone wants to make the scene
On the back of a magazine
How’d you get so squeaky clean?
On the back of a magazine uh huh
On the back of a magazine

What was beautiful has now gone rotten
Are you happy with what you’ve gotten?
They’ve got some pictures with all your clothes off
And all the cocaine, it ate your nose off

Everyone wants to make the scene
On the back of a magazine
How’d you get so squeaky clean?
On the back of a magazine uh huh
On the back of a magazine uh huh
On the back of a magazine uh huh
On the back of a magazine un huh
