Some of us at WoW have known Justin Tranter since he was just a hellaciously talented young solo songwriter/rocker on the rise in NYC nearly 10 years ago. In 2006 he formed the blisteringly lovely band Semi Precious Weapons, and they’ve since toured with Lady Gaga all over the world, appeared in Gaga’s “Telephone” video (I think they all die in the diner scene. Fun!) and Tranter even got dishy press for partying with Kate Moss in London.
Today, Semi Precious Weapons releases their new single, “Aviation High” and it’s dreamy. Now based in LA, Tranter and his bandmates are prepping a new album out later this spring, planning a tour, and writing tunes for other artists. Simply put: They are busy bitches. (Go here to see a very cool promo video for the tune!)
Listen & download the tune below. And get into the lithe and lovely glam of Tranter above, shot by Jose A. Guzman Colon, who knows his way around a sultry subject. (Colon’s shot just about all of the RuPaul’s Drag Race gals. He’s a legend.)
Listen to the just-released Semi Precious Weapons‘ “Aviation High.” Listen, share, download and live. (t/y Justin)
