"Late Slip delivers rollicking country-punk at Hank's Saloon 04.12"

NYC's Late Slip is best categorized as country-punk, though the band's genre-bending makes for a unique, if not undefinable, listen. Their 2016 EP, Other Men, is a rollicking four-song romp that grapples with the theme of love lost, without descending into tones of bitterness or self-pity. The tempestuous content of frontwoman Chelsea Nenni's lyrics is counterbalanced by uptempo, crunchy, roots-rock arrangements. Nenni's vocals are remarkably strong and versatile, carrying each song along with impressive technique and range. Above all else, the songs are catchy and concise, with memorable melodies that'll stick around one's brain long after they're over. Check out the eponymous "Other Men" below, and don't miss Late Slip at Hank's Saloon on April 12th, with Lovechild! - Ethan Ames - The Deli Magazine

One extra cold winter in New York City, Chelsea Nenni (guitar/vocals) hid in her apartment, wrote a bunch of songs, and decided to move to Los Angeles. Once in LA, she got a job at her fave independent record store, Amoeba Music, and met a musician pal who helped her record the Other Men EP.

Other Men
got airplay on a couple local radio stations and the band gained traction with live shows all over LA. They even spent a night supporting iconic new wave / post-punk rockers, Missing Persons, at the famed Whisky A Go-Go. Standing on that stage, where both Iggy Pop and Gwen Stefani had once stood, Chelsea knew she was ready to go back to New York City. The winters would be cold, but she’d have Iggy-Gwen stardust to protect her.

So, Chelsea moved all her shit back across the country and found a new band within two weeks of being back in town. In their first ever gig together, the band opened for Fred Thomas, James Brown’s bass player in the 1960’s. He sprinkled some funky pixie dust on them that night and it’s been magic ever since.
