ElectraQueens Drop Their First Single “Walk Away”: The newly-minted ElectraQueens (formerly The Highway Women) are bursting onto the music scene with their first single, “Walk Away.”
The ElectraQueens refuse to play by the rules in every way – with a revamped sound and image, the previously-country girl group is taking a darker, edgier turn in 2022. Released March 25, “Walk Away” is the first original song by the newly named ElectraQueens, and their vocal chops are more stunning than ever before as they quite literally walk away from everything we thought we knew about the group.
A classic breakup ballad, “Walk Away” oozes the power that the group’s three singers bring to the table as individuals. As a trio alongside the support of angsty drums and guitar, the single is just as dark as the cover suggests. The story that unfolds is one of a realization that a relationship is over and the only possible move is to leave. As the song opens unassumingly, Jenane’s honey-sweet voice is resigned as “no words are ever spoken, and yet it says so much.” The chorus explodes as Alyssa Scott and Gabrielle Vaughn join in, blending together seamlessly to fully embody the beginning of the end. Scott’s country flair lends itself to the past of the group and Vaughn’s undeniable rock edge complement Jenane’s pop vocals.
The mid-track guitar solo is a perfect example of how dedicated the group is to making music that is polished and unforgettable without singing a note- and it works spectacularly to reinforce the drama of the song. It’s clear from how easily Scott’s verse transfers to Vaughn’s soulful bridge that the group has worked tirelessly to operate as a unit rather than solo artists and to infuse all their unique styles into one divine creation. ElectraQueens are founded on girl power, but there’s truly nothing as powerful as “Walk Away” and the impact the single will have on the trajectory of the group.
Established in 2016, ElectraQueens is an all-female, cross genre-blending band like no other. The newly developed band featuring Jenane Dahl, Alyssa Scott, and Gabrielle Vaughn is ready to kick off 2022 with new music featuring their incredible harmonies and inspiring vocals. While the former band members focused on country music, the new ladies will lead their fans through pop, R&B, and country blends.
They recently collaborated with The Bacon Brothers on an upcoming release and Kathy Sledge of “Sister Sledge” fame (both projects will release in 2022). While their backgrounds are different their blend is one of a kind. Jenane Dahl is a Georgia native, who made her way to Nashville and is a graduate of Belmont University.
She is a pop/R&B singer and leads the group’s vocal arrangements. Gabrielle Vaughn hails from Ohio and is also a graduate of Belmont University. Vaughn’s music background is heavily influenced by Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse, and other pop/rock legends. Alyssa Scott is a Fargo, North Dakota transplant who calls Nashville home. Both Alyssa and Jenane are regulars on the local stages of Nashville.
