Our characteristic collection Monitor by Monitor permits artists to run via each tune on their latest launch. As we speak, Allison Ponthier dissects her sophomore EP, Shaking Fingers With Elvis.


Allison Ponthier returns right now (June tenth) with the beautiful Shaking Fingers With Elvis EP, her second launch in only a yr. The singer-songwriter established early on along with her debut launch, Faking My Personal Demise EP, that she was not taken with taking part in to the monogenre field that nation music had outlined for her, as an alternative choosing one thing nearer to the dynamic folk-tinged stoicism of Kacey Musgraves and Orville Peck.

On the core of Allison Ponthier’s mission is embracing herself as a queer artist in an in any other case limiting house. Now, with Shaking Fingers With Elvis, she’s expanded her sound an important deal, incorporating some fuzzy indie rock guitars, versatile tune buildings, and bold manufacturing decisions. “Autopilot” is essentially the most rock-forward tune she’s ever launched, and “Late Bloomer” appears to stay in a Fleetwood Mac-style alternate universe.

These are a few of the most important and pressing tracks that Ponthier has ever crafted, and in accordance with the artist herself, Shaking Fingers With Elvis is all about “accepting [her] flaws and celebrating the weirdness of who [she is].” That boldness is obvious as day on the EP, and it’s yet one more instance of why Ponthier is without doubt one of the most enjoyable singer-songwriters round.
