The Immediate Family Rolls Out ‘The Toughest Girl In Town’

The Immediate Family, Toughest Girl In Town

The Immediate Family roll out “The Toughest Girl In Town” from their forthcoming album, Skin In The Game out early 2023 on Quarto Valley Records.

The Immediate Family is Danny Kortchmar, Waddy Wachtel, Russ Kunkel, Leland Sklar, and Steve Postell.

“The Toughest Girl In Town” finds a new life with The Immediate Family. Departing from Sparks’ original synth-heavy version, TIF makes the song a guitar pop masterpiece rendered with brand-new colors and textures that give it an entirely new identity. Leland Sklar plays a loping, brilliantly minimal bass groove that defines the tune’s motion while Steve Postell croons it out with his high, clear, tenor voice. A great song can work its magic in a variety of arrangements and this particular great song proves it. Don’t miss out on what’s arguably The Immediate Family’s finest release to date.

Considering the breadth of their illustrious careers, it’s fair to say that The Immediate Family can accomplish anything by drawing on their invention and ingenuity. Not surprisingly, their new single, a compelling cover of the Sparks song, “The Toughest Girl in Town,” demonstrates that fact. These legendary musicians put their own spin on the tune, giving it a unique drive and demonstrative delivery, set against a dynamic backdrop that spotlights the song’s resilient chorus.
