Brooklyn’s Cindy Lou Gooden aka Very Fresh recently released her new Hey, It's Me! EP via New Professor Music and Inflated Records. It’s full of fearlessly honest lyrics, lush instrumentation and sweet vocal melodies with a bare grunge gleam. In a moment of serious 90’s rock inception, Gooden has shared a stunning cover of Garbage’s “Only Happy When It Rains”, shared by The Le Sigh today.
“When comparing the two, it's almost impossible to tell the difference between Very Fresh's Cindy Lou Gooden and Manson's striking and versatile vocals.” - The Le Sigh
Gooden spent the last year releasing her single “Clean Touch”, recording on Ava Luna’s last album, touring with Kino Kimino (Sonic Youth) and Leapling on bass, and prior to that, forming the all-female Pavement cover band, Babement, with Speedy Ortiz’s Sadie Dupuis. Hey, It's Me! is a 5 song collection of clever, confessional, melodic indie rock that pays homage to Gooden’s alternative rock predecessors with its muscular drumming and driving guitars, while incorporating inspiration from her contemporary favorites like Courtney Barnett, Pile, and Palehound. The result is Very Fresh at her most dynamic.
