Say She She Calls For Gun Control Reform Through The Ecstatic and Revolutionary Sounds of Post-Disco Funk

Say She She Calls For Gun Control Reform Through The Ecstatic and Revolutionary Sounds of Post-Disco Funk

New Single “Echo In The Chamber” Out NOW, Silver Out Sept 29 on Karma Chief Records

Set To Embark On Biggest Headlining Tour To Date This Fall, Including LA’s Lodge Room (9/28 + 9/29) and NYC’s Bowery Ballroom (10/17)

“[Silver] expands the grammar of R&B into the heart of the modern-day mainstream.” —Uncut


Today, NYC discodelic soul outfit Say She She shares “Echo In The Chamber,” the latest preview of forthcoming record Silver (out September 29 / Karma Chief Records). Crying for listeners to “usher in the change,”  “Echo In The Chamber” — which premiered yesterday on WXPN — is a fiery call to action in support of increased gun control legislation in the states. 

Alongside the single release, the band is working to support the Background Check Expansion Act — a bipartisan proposal widely supported by organizations like Sandy Hook Promise, Moms Demand Action, The National Education Association and others which requires background checks on all gun sales — through a record store initiative: all record stores that carry Say She She’s new album Silver will also carry and give out postcards that include a call to action against the national gun violence epidemic, meant to be sent to your local representative. From their collective backgrounds in education, speechwriting, and nonprofit work, Say She She has learned that the best ways to take action are direct, loud, and proud — just like their music.

Opening with the fiery incantation that is “Reeling,” Silver turns the dial on their anger and confidence all the way up. “Kick the door down, smash the ceiling, leave ‘em reeling!” sets the mood for a musical journey imbued with political grit. While today’s release addresses gun control, “NORMA,” the group’s protest anthem written in response to the decision to overturn Roe v Wade, is an urgent call to action to support the protection of women’s rights and preserving the right to choose. It was first released on Bandcamp, just days before the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v Wade was made last year. “We will not go back!!,” the trio cries, channeling the revolutionary and ecstatic sounds of disco to perfect, compelling harmony.

In a new review, Uncut lauds Silver for its “eloquent excursions into vintage Philly soul (“Don’t You Dare Stop”), En Vogue operatics (“Forget Me Not”) and the cinematic funk of Curtis Mayfield (“Astral Plane”, “Passing Time”). That’s not to suggest [Silver] is an entirely retro proposition, as even on the record’s most left-field moments and historical echoes there’s a clear path being charted, expanding the grammar of R&B into the heart of the modern-day mainstream.”


In what has been a breakout year, Say She She has made their national TV debut on CBS Saturday and have emerged as darlings of tastemaker radio, performing sessions and receiving significant spins from the likes of KEXP, WFUV — which selected the group as featured performers in last year’s annual Holiday Cheer event at the Beacon Theater — and WXPN, including World Cafe and a performance at their spring NonCOMMvention. Their latest single release, “Astral Plane,” marked the groups fourth appearance at #1 on KCRW's Top 30. Watch Say She She’s new live concert performance with WFUV here:

Plus, Say She She just announced the dates for what will be their biggest headlining tour yet, with performances at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, LEVITATION fest, a double header at LA’s Lodge Room (9/28 + 9/29), and NYC’s Bowery Ballroom (10/17). The performances follow the group’s Hollywood Bowl debut with Portugal The Man, opening Central Park Summerstage’s 2023 season, and three sets in 24 hours at Glastonbury.
