With the release of their single Georgiana, the Tennessee quartet Naked Gypsy Queens stake their claim as one of the new heavyweights of rock & roll’s modern-day renaissance. Rooted in amplified blues, hard-charging grooves, and dual lead guitars, the band builds upon the larger-than-life sound of their heroes from the 1960s and ’70s, keeping the flame burning for old-school hard rock while using their own 21st century fuel. Having just been signed to Mascot Records, the band’s forthcoming EP is slated for release in late 2021.
Formed while all four members were still in high school, Naked Gypsy Queens built their audience the blue-collar way: by plugging in, turning up, and playing out. They cut their teeth on the classics — the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, MC5, the Allman Brothers, and Pink Floyd — and funnelled those influences into their own songs, creating an original sound that was loud, aggressive, and filled with supersized hooks. After developing a loyal following in their hometown of Franklin, TN, they set their sights on Nashville, quickly becoming one of the city’s premiere rock acts before any of the bandmates had turned 20 years old.
With a sound that reaches across generations, Naked Gypsy Queens bridge the divide between the genre’s past and future, creating timeless rock & roll for the modern world. There is lots to like here – with classic rock grooves missed in with dirty slide guitars. Led not only by Chris Attigliato’s soulful howl, but also the sonic punch of a taut rhythm section in Bo Howard (Bass) and Landon Herring (Drums) and the interlocked riffs of two lead guitarists Cade Pickering and Attigliato himself, Naked Gypsy Queens are rock royalty in the making.
