Formed in Oklahoma in 2010, THE RUSKETTES is the name behind which lies the talent of Chris Rusk (WIGHEAD, LA PANTHER HAPPENS) and his passion for Phil Spector’s wall of sound. This gives shape to a group based in a trio of women: Lindsay Bolliger, Vanessa Painter and Justine Rusk, backed by a band known as THE RUSKETTES ORCHESTRA that varies constantly and has its rhythmic nucleus formed by Airon Wessinger, Brian Voris and Chris Rusk himself.
“Tell Me Why” is the debut single of a band that emphasizes the choruses and catchy melodies with a certain air of irony and so much youthful confidence. The vinyl single shows its taste for the Mad Men esthetic and sugary sweet pop songs. It is available to purchase through Elefant and through iTunes or other major digital disturbers.
