[50% of our NOTDF Bandcamp sales go to El Rio SF]

NOTDF (Nip On The Dance Floor) is our newest single out on Club Queen Records on July 15, 2020 and across Europe on AnalogueTrash on July 31, 2020!!

An electro disco punk nu wave hit, NOTDF takes you on a journey into the reimagined future past where nips hypnotize (nipnotize?) and David Bowie holds your hand as you waltz into an electro queer Art Deco rendition of Wizard of Oz. Let's go! youtu.be/dmbVoTmrgZQ

Ess Nelson's rich vocals deliver a mix of urgency and artful levity, a cocktail with the danceable power to flip the script with a wry smile and break open the societal constraints that keep us from living our most expansive, authentic, dignified and celebratory lives. NOTDF delivers a timely message of liberation with a shift in perspective: from that of a nip. “Who put me in this shirt? Let me out from under here!”

In this quarantined era of social transformation, NOTDF gives voice to our collective desires to be ‘let out.'

Buy the track on Bandcamp to support El Rio SF, a beloved and struggling queer institution!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Nip On The El Rio Dance Floor ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Ess was in mid-conversation when they spotted a free nip bouncing gloriously to the beat on the back patio of El Rio, the beloved queer bar in San Francisco's Mission neighborhood. In a fit of inspiration, Ess proceeded to write the lyrics for NOTDF (Nip On The Dance Floor), later crafting the song in Berlin during a short stay at a queer art/activist house.

El Rio has served the queer community for years with events such as Mango, Swagger Like Us, the after-party for the TransMarch, Queeraoke, the queer music series, Hard French, and so much more, many of which cater specifically to the Black and Brown LGBTQ community. It is a beloved institution, a touchstone for the LGBTQ community, a space of connection, to see and celebrate each other (and to cruise and be cruised... remember that??).

While El Rio has creatively weathered the changing demographics and gentrification of San Francisco over the years, the pandemic has not been so nice, and they are now in need of some support. We'll be donating 50% of NOTDF earnings from Bandcamp to El Rio!

lyrics

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Lyrics ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Crop tops and gold lame
Bootie shorts and Tanquerey
Five dollar memories
Tricolor ephemera
Ephemera

Pit hair and skin tight jeans
Hot babes bursting free
Sweaty hips move my way
Then I see your blissed out face
Then I see ya

Nip nip nip nip on the dance floor
Nip nip nip nip on the dance floor
Nip nip nip nip, shake those hips
Nip nip nip nip, shake those hips

Dancing you got caught
Sweaty and taut
Pointing at the crowd
The nip shouts out
Who put me in this shirt?
Was it you or you or her?
Who put me in this shirt
Let me out from under here

Let me out, let me out ohh, let me out
Let me out, let me out ohh, let me out!

Nip nip nip nip on the dance floor
Nip nip nip nip on the dance floor
Nip nip nip nip, shake those hips
Nip nip nip nip, shake those hips

Nip nip nip nip on the dance floor
Nip nip nip nip on the dance floor
Nip nip nip nip, shake those hips
Nip nip nip nip, shake those hips

Shake those hips

Sunshine
Sunshine
Sunshine on the patio
Swagger
Haircut
Swagger
Haircut

Swagger haircut rodeo
Swagger haircut rodeo
Swagger haircut rodeo
Swagger haircut rodeo

Shake those hips
