all boy/all girl are sharing their dynamic new single "Not It" on Consequence of Soundahead of the release of Trophy, the avant-garde pop septet's upcoming EP. Set for release on March 3rd via Grind Select (Moon Bounce), Trophy finds the Brooklyn band - Danielle Lovier (vocals/ukulele), Jessie Rogowski (vocals/guitar), Joshua Curry (guitars), Hannah Levinson (viola), Richard Vaudrey (cello), Nicholas Rahn (bass), Joey Campanella (drums) - exploring new sonic territories and texture combining pop, avant-garde jazz, indie rock, and a knack for the theatrical. Consequence of Sound described "Not It" sharing, "the deeply assertive message is off-set by more sonically nuanced components, like Jessie Rogowski’s eerie harmonies, a sputtering string section, and the ethereal textures that abound throughout".
Asked about the song, the band had the following to share, "The themes in the song are a sort of commentary on consumerist culture. The lyrics ask the question of whether or not material items can bring somebody happiness, which is answered rather directly. The lyrics are an off kilter parallel to the T.S. Elliot poem "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" which is nodded to with the refrain "That's not it. That's not what I meant at all."
"Not It" is the EP's second single and the follow up to "Glitters" which Portals recently sharing the following,
"Danielle Lovier has some sort of fire pipes. She belts ferociously on this first, surprising taste of all boy/all girl‘s forthcoming release. “Glitters” starts off sweet. Lovier’s voice is boiling honey, but it turns effortlessly violent. Those vocal flames lick the tips of your toes and a cacophony of beautiful sound splashing from the 7-piece band that is building on a foundation of musical theater meets punk rock."
