Thunderpussy have shared a rocking version of "Somebody To Love." Listen above on YouTube.
Originally written and recorded as "Someone to Love" by Darby Slick of The Great Society and released in 1966, the song would later become a major hit for Jefferson Airplane after it was released a year later in a tighter and more up-tempo version. (Grace Slick, the featured vocalist on both versions, is the sister-in-law of Darby Slick.)
On this new recording of the classic tune, Thunderpussy — Seattle rockers with a name that always makes us laugh — put their own twist on the song while remaining true to the vintage mind-melting psychedelic sound. Heavy drums, chugging riffs, muscular bass, and trippy production combine with spot-on vocals, breathing a new life into a song that is over 50-years-old at this point and probably been played billions of times from vinyl to radio, 8-tracks, cassettes, CDs, downloads, and now streaming.
You can pick up Thunderpussy's 2018 self-titled debut album on Amazon.
The band will head out on tour in July with Black Pistol Fire. For concert tickets and more, check out Thunderpussy's Zumic artist page.
