Synopsis >

Washington, D.C., is home to go-go, a click-clacking brand of party music that just goes and goes, as go-go pioneer Chuck Brown once put it. It s a hypnotic subgenre that s never made lasting waves outside the city, even if artists like Jill Scott and The Roots flirted with its percussive blend. In a sense, traditional go-go is giving way to bands like D.C. s Black Alley, bands that root themselves in that style while reaching for soul and rock and that melange of styles is on full display in their new video for Bad Girl. If you ve seen Black Alley perform live, you ve undoubtedly heard Bad Girl, a popular rock jam in the band s growing catalog. Atop a go-go bounce beat and volatile guitars, singer Kacey Williams wants passion without restraints: I wanna be delivered, can I get free with you? The racy video for Bad Girl, directed by D.C.-based collective Cool Kids Forever, follows two story arcs: We see the flighty relationship between bassist Josh and a lady he appears to have just met. We also get glimpses of Black Alley s great stage energy.There truly is no limit to their sound.Black Alley s Soul.Swagger.Rock.Sneakers is out now.
