With her seemingly endless superhero antics, its easily forgotten that Scarlett Johansson occasionally exchanged the tights for rocker togs to perform with her band The Singles. One of her co-conspirators in said musical venture was guitarist Julia Haltigan, who has been lately busy making her own way, with the recent single “Wool” – and rapturous press from the likes of Interview and the New York Times.
In between straddling her vintage Triumph motorcycles and making cameo appearances in HBO’s The Deuce, she’s managed to record an album, the W. Andrew Raposo produced Trouble, slated for release October 25. In the meantime, BlackBook premieres here the advance single “Debris of Love,” which, with its twangy guitars, retro organ blasts, and Haltigan’s dreamy, Nancy Sinatra-esque vocals, sounds something like The Strokes as produced by David Lynch.
“This song is about falling in love while knowing it won’t last long,” she explains. “It’s also about the energy New York City has during the summer, those nights when it feels like anything could happen.”
A perfect excuse, then, to hang on to summer just a little bit longer.
