“Stronger” by Gothic Tropic
Los Angeles’ Gothic Tropic introduces a new brand of female fronted, guitar-driven indie rock. They recently debuted their video for”Stronger”.
Cecilia Della Peruti, recently told was quoted in ‘Rookie’ about her lyrical inspiration. The line “You can’t turn the wheel ’cause you can’t steer,” for example, has to do with the idea of being afraid to say something that’s true because you’re bridled by fear, feeling nervous about asserting yourself. It comes out of working in male-dominated communities, I think. As a woman, I felt that I should always be easy to work with, which meant that a lot of the time I stayed silent when I maybe shouldn’t have. That line, and the song itself, says everything I ever wanted to say about being pressured to stay quiet that way.
The brainchild of Cecilia Della Peruti, Gothic Tropic keeps the vibe playful and punchy, bringing audiences into a new era of female rock nobility, nodding to stars like Debbie Harry, and Chrissie Hynde. Delivering a blend of Richard Lloyd and Nile Rodgers on guitar, Gothic Tropic’s Della Peruti has won sponsorships with Fender, and leading pedal manufacturers, and works professionally as a touring and session player for Charli XCX, BØRNS, and more.
