“Our society can very easily pigeonhole women into feeling like they have a certain role to play and if you choose to sway from it there will be ridicule… or you’ll end up a cat lady alone forever. But there is nothing wrong with going off the beaten path (& cats are rad) and solitude is healthy, not a state of doom. It’s about staying true to you and if a little weed and whiskey help, go for it,” Paige Calico says of the inspiration behind her sultry folk gospel “Arm Candy”.
The video, directed by Scarlet Moreno, and song is a kitschy anthem that changes the narrative of feminism and needing a man through Paige’s signature whiskey infused sugar vocals floating softly atop steel guitars and addictingly rhythmic beat and choreography.
Paige’s music is the soundtrack to self-searching told with an ironic wink and burlesque that would make your grandmother nod with joy. She’s an artist that takes life’s ups and downs and turns them into melodies best served loudly, preferably at the top of your lungs with a glass of something chilled within your reach.
Paige Calico is having her single release show tonight (6.6) at the bootleg theater. for tickets: https://ticketf.ly/
