Following their stunning set on Jools Holland a few weeks ago, New Orleans-based Hurray For The Riff Raff take inspiration from John Waters in the new playful girl gang-themed video for ‘I Know It’s Wrong (But That’s Alright)’, featuring Brittany Howard from Alabama Shakes. Watch it below:
Hurray for the Riff Raff’s new album ‘Small Town Heroes’ is out now via ATO Records. Produced by front-woman Alynda Lee Segarra and engineered by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes), ‘Small Town Heroes’ features 12 new, original songs all written or co-written by Segarra with support from a vivid cast of Crescent City musicians, including her longtime right-hand-man on fiddle, Yosi Perlstein, keyboard player Casey McAllister and two members of the Deslondes: Sam Doores on guitar and Dan Cutler on bass.
In our 2012 interview with Alynda she told us “Hurray for the Riff Raff reflects my love and feeling of camaraderie with the underdog. It’s a celebration of all of those living on the fringes”. Read it here.
