Two Girls, A Guitar, And I’m Not Complaining

3 Oct

So I live below two of the most musically talented women in San Marcos. This is a total blessing because whenever I’m in the mood for a Katy Perry cover or a hum-worthy original, I just walk up 12 very wobbly steps and knock on the door of none other than,

OLIVE & CHUCK

 

I cannot rave enough about these girls, and not just because I have known them upwards of 3 years and they are two of my best friends EVER! Talent drips off of them much like glitter drips off of a wet drag queen. Tegan and Sara they are not. Let me channel my inner Summer Roberts for a moment to tell you that you’re not going to get two girls with guitars and a whole lot of complaining when you pop them into your Walkman (this is still the 90’s, right?), you’re going to get, as they call it, a bittersweet balance of happiness vs. sadness. One of my favorite summary’s of a band’s mission statement has to be The Drums’. They say that they only write about two things – one is the first day of summer when you and all of your friends are standing on the edge of a cliff watching the sun set and being overcome with all of your hopes and dreams at once. The other is when you’re walking alone in the rain and realize you will be alone forever. Olive & Chuck aren’t this dark, but they’ll hit you hard. Masquerading harsh, fun, honest lyrics under one tiny ukulele and  two big heads of hair, the two give the YouTube Taylor Swifts of this generation a reason to stay in their Jonas-Brother-poster-lined bedrooms. Whether it be a sweet little tune about not being able to get a partner to commit, or an Adele-esque power stance of a hit worthy of playing out through The Hunger Games movie, O&C write a new definition to two girls with guitars. But don’t take my simple words and praises for it, give ’em a listen at their music MySpace (good, it still is the 90’s!), follow them on the Twitter, like ’em on the Facebook, or click play below! You’ll be oh so happy you did.
