Beth Ditto, formerly the leader of the great blues-punk band Gossip, is about to step out on her own, releasing her solo debut Fake Sugar this summer. We already posted the shit-stomping lead single “Fire,” as well as its deeply satisfying video, and now Ditto has dropped another single called “Oo La La.” Like “Fire,” “Oo La La” plays like a updated, processed, laser-focused version of an old-school blues-rock growler. It has a synthetic sheen all over it, but the way Ditto delivers the word “bonecrusher” is about as nasty as it gets. Check it out below.
Fake Sugar is out 6/16 via Virgin Records.
