Movie Club Drop New Single “Thresher”

After headlining a national tour, Venice Beach psych rock duo Movie Club is gearing up for an August Monday night residency at Hollywood rock venue Harvard & Stone. Movie Club is releasing “Thresher” – their 2nd single this year – on August 7th in order to announce the residency and to reveal their forthcoming sophomore LP Great White cover art featuring shark jaws and their rainbow all-inclusive hibiscus flower logo.

Although drummer Jessamyn Violet and guitarist Vince Cuneo are a power duo, Movie Club believes in the true power of collaboration. They always feature instrumentalists on recordings in order to expand the musical conversation. “Thresher” features the driving bass line of Tim Lefebvre (David Bowie) and the sonic saxophone of David Ralicke (Ozomatli). The depth and adventure that collaborating with these legends adds inspires Movie Club to extend it past recording into live shows.

For their residency, Movie Club is excited to showcase talented artists and voices with live collaborations with performers and creatives of many genres. The group has invited notable instrumentalists, burlesque dancers, drag performers, MCs and more. Drummer Jessamyn Violet is also a published author and has curated her favorite local rock ’n’ roll writers to perform spoken word over the duo’s music. They have done this kind of “Variety Show” show structure before in New York, and can’t wait to do it in their hometown this summer. “There will be 25 special guests at this residency. The fact we haven’t performed with or even met some of these artists will make each show spontaneous.” says Cuneo. “Bringing our music to new fans was truly inspiring. We are thrilled to have a chance to collaborate with local LA artists and then focus on the album release this fall.”
