Five Songs to Stream: Gossip
Gossip is the trio composed of singer Beth Ditto, guitarist Nathan “Brace” Paine, and drummer Hannah Blilie. The band’s front woman is truly the star of the show, and she is known for her avant-garde fashion sense. Ditto has worked as a plus size model and opened for Jean Paul Gaultier’s 2011 Spring Fashion show. She collaborated with MAC for a limited edition makeup collection in 2012.
“Move in the Right Direction” -- The second single off of Gossip’s most recent album, “A Joyful Noise,” it is the band’s signature combination of pop and Goth rock.
“Heavy Cross” - You might recognize this song from the 2011 Charlize Theron J’adore Parfume Dior commercial. Watch Theron get ready next to Marilyn Monroe and walk down the catwalk here.
“Perfect World” - Gossip’s first single off of “A Joyful Noise” was an international success. It was top 40 in six countries and reached number one in Switzerland.
“I Won’t Play” – A good song for late night city driving.
“Don’t Make Waves” - Going back in Gossip history, this song from their 2007 album, “Movement,” shows the band’s rock n’ roll roots with none of the synth pop they’ve been recently incorporating.
