“Ooh La La,” the new song from emerging R&B girl group, The Shindellas, debuts today alongside a video—listen HERE and watch HERE. Of the single, The Shindellas share, “‘Ooh La La’ is a fresh feminine bop! A guaranteed instant classic.”
“Ooh La La” is the third song unveiled from their highly anticipated new album, Shindo, set for release on October 20via Weirdo Workshop/Thirty Tigers (pre-save/pre-order here). Produced by Louis York—the Grammy Award-winning duo of Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony (Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Jazmine Sullivan)—Shindo, which features nine new tracks, is a modern take on the beloved girl group genre that taps into R&B and soul to bring forth a sound they call “New American Soul.”
Ahead of the release, The Shindellas recently shared album tracks, “Juicy,” of which SoulBounce hails “showcases the ladies’ immaculate harmonies over a bouncy, summer-ready beat that pops, bubbles and shimmers,” and “Last Night Was Good For My Soul,” which is currently top 20 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart and premiered to acclaim from Rolling Stone, MusicRow, Rated R&B, You Know I Got Soul and more.
Known for their energetic live shows, The Shindellas recently performed a tribute to Evelyn “Champagne” King at the 8th Annual Black Music Honors. The group is set to perform selected dates across North America, including Nashville’s AmericanaFest. See below for the complete itinerary and purchase tickets here.
The Shindellas—Tamara Chauniece, Stacy Johnson and Kasi Jones—made history as the first R&B band to perform at the CMT Awards in 2021. In addition to widespread critical acclaim, the trio has performed most recently at the 2023 Black Music Honors, as well as at the 2022 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting, Disney’s Dreamers Academy, ESSENCE Festival of Culture, TEDxNashville Women and the 2021 CMA Country Christmas.
The Shindellas are already receiving widespread notice with the Nashville Scene asserting, “The trio is a true vocal powerhouse, and they eschew the idea of a lead singer in favor of trading verses and singing in glorious three-part harmony,” while NPR Music praises, “Girl group vocal pop has evolved across many generations, without always getting its due as a legitimate musical tradition…As a sophisticated girl group rising out of the Nashville music-making community, the Shindellas are positioned to defy all these perceptions and more.”
