The Chicks are back! Their first album in 14 years (has it really been that long?!) spills the hottest tea this side of the ocean. “Tights on My Boat” is especially scorching as Natalie Maines continues connecting the dots on whatever the hell happened on that damn boat. “I hope you die peacefully in your sleep,” she sings. “Just kidding! I hope it hurts like you hurt me.”
Their lyrics remain as barbed as ever. It’s only their musical setting has shifted. In working with pop elite Jack Antonoff, the trio reapply their country roots into a decidedly polished exterior. “And you can tell the girl who left her tights on my boat / That she can have you now,” she flicks off her tongue. It’s spicy, and we’re here for it.
