First Rate People :: "Gentleman's Club"

Undeniably one of our favorite bands of the 2010, the genre-smashing First Rate People return with a challenging, fantastically catchy single, "Gentleman's Club." Built on an elastic, rubberized riff and the strong, if light-hearted, interplay between male and female vocals, "Gentleman's Club" sounds like a distant call to a half-remembered summer single from 1984, a simpler time where UB40 was allowed on the radio and people weren't so nasty to each other. In rough metaphor, this is futuristic nostalgia. Musically, like the rest of the First Rate People's work, it is instantly addicting, insanely hard to pin down (this is intentional), and so full of hooks you'll feel like you woke up in a tackle box.
