Given the increasingly uncertain times we live in, it’s perhaps no surprise that She Keeps Bees speak up boldly for their namesake insects and other forms of vanishing life — including humans — on “Head of Steak,” their upcoming single for Planned Parenthood and Earth Justice. In the past, the Brooklyn duo of singer-guitarist Jessica Larrabee and drummer Andy LaPlant have crafted bewitching but subtly restrained songs that slowly build power through shadowy chords and enigmatic lyrics. But even these seemingly mellow mood-spinners have a harder side, and Larrabee eschews any hint of mystery as she balefully declares, “It’s not a joke/he aims to knock us over with his gall … his greed … head of steak, you deal in snake oil/poison our water for a fucking dollar.” Meanwhile, like rising tides, her sullen, sludgy chords become bigger and more foreboding.
