Unruly Mane release sing-along hit ‘Gin’
As Unruly Mane, married duo Steven and Leea Scarola have been making foot-stomping, sing-a-long hits since 2015. You know, the kind of music you would listen to while sitting in the sun, cold beer in your band. In May last year they released ‘Gin’, a warm tribute to having a drink with your friends and having fun.
Steve Scarola began his music career as the lead guitarist in the pop rock band Push Play. He even co-wrote the Top 40 hit ‘Midnight Romeo’ in 2009, earning the band a performance on the Hess Float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Push Play have also toured with Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus. As the band split 5 years later, Unruly Mane was born.
Leea wrote the lyrics to ‘Gin’ while she was staying sober during her pregnancy, as she fantasised about that first unapologetic drink she could have after their son River was born. The inspiration was further helped by the fact that her husband, Steven, fell in love with Bar Hill Gin at this time. The track was recorded at Skylar Ross Recording Studio in Wayne, New Jersey. To give the track it’s full band feel, Steven’s ex-Push Play bandmates Nick DeTurris and Derek Ries play bass and drums, while Leea’s best friend, Julia LeGregni, supplies background vocals. Inspired by The Lumineers and Bon Iver, the country tones in ‘Gin’ gives the song a warm, acoustic and free-spirited feel. The bubbly vocals from Leea also shine as a track highlight.
Unruly Mane performed ‘Gin’ in a live studio as part of the Adorama Music series Amplified. You can check out this great performance below!
