WEST SEATTLE MUSIC: See the debut video from THEM

Meet THEM – what you see above is the band’s video debut. Member Ellie emailed us to say, “We are a West Seattle teen girl band (ages 16-19) that formed at Mode Music Studios called THEM! We just released our first music video to our debut single ‘BAD 4 U’.” She and bandmates Hudson, Maia, and Thompson asked us to share it with you. You can also stream the song via a variety of channels that are all linked here. You can also see THEM onstage at a big gig downtown next month – they’re playing the Paramount on December 12th as part of the 30th anniversary screening of “Nirvana: Live at the Paramount” – tickets are on sale online. Find out more about THEM on their website.

    A fine first single!  I’m so old and forgetful that I thought the young ladies were covering Cole Porter’s “It’s Bad for Me,” from his 1933 London Show,  “Nymph Errant.”   Occasionally current musicians cover his songs because the melodies are so unusual.   Here’s a link to one of the early recordings:

    Interesting reuse of the band name – when I hear THEM I think of the 1960’s song Gloria

    Great song.

    Awesome to hear real instruments.

    Can’t wait to take my 9 year old daughter to see you play live someday!

    I hope you play a local all ages show sometime early next year once her vaccinations are complete.
