Despite the split of her former music group the Distillers in 2006, the future for singer Brody Dalle is looking bright; Not only has she started a new group with a few of her ex-bandmates called Spinnerette, but she is also mom to 2 ½-year-old Camille Harley Joan. Although Brody admits that in the past she often felt "like I was flailing about, like I couldn't keep it together," motherhood has "finally grounded" the 29-year-old singer as she has found her purpose in life and now has "something beautiful to live for."
Brody Dalle discusses Spinnerette's debut album
Former Distillers frontwoman takes complete creative control
Brody Dalle's new band Spinnerette have finished recording their debut album at a Los Angeles studio, and plan to release it themselves in the US this February.
Dalle said that after her renowned punk band The Distillers broke up, she was looking for a new direction to take her music and complete creative control.
"I didn't want to do a fucking monkey dance for people who don't care about art," she told NME.COM. "I want to be more art focused and call the shots."
Spinnerette is the sound of a sweaty black leather glove holding a lollipop’s stick, shoving it into crushed glass before offering you the first lick. If that made any sense, it might be Spinnerette. There is sweetness and there is menace. You will have the desire in spite of the obvious danger. Have you been hurt before?
This is no awkward first fumble in the rumble seat: Spinnerette comes with experience. Brody Dalle has been places nice girls fear to tread without sacrificing virtue or integrity. Her last long-term relationship, The Distillers, ended messily, the way relationships tend to do. In the following months, there was a lot for one heart to bear: the pain of illness striking those near and dear contrasted with the joys of matrimony and motherhood. With such extremes of life pulling at her, it’s no great mystery that the resultant writing is possessed of equally dynamic range, with nothing left out. As Dalle describes it, “Spinnerette is what happens when I let the tap flow.”
