SubscribeStar Saturday: Behind the Songs: “Hipster Girl Next Door”

Today’s post is a SubscribeStar Saturday exclusive.  To read the full post, subscribe to my SubscribeStar page for $1 a month or more.  For a full rundown of everything your subscription gets, click here.

Today I’m beginning a six-part miniseries for SubscribeStar Saturday called Behind the Songs.  In this series, I’m going to reveal the stories behind each of the six songs on my debut EP, Contest Winner EP.  I’ll go track-by-track, in order, detailing the inspirations behind these songs.

Naturally, that means the best—or, at least, the fan favorite—will be first:  the lead-off single “Hipster Girl Next Door.”  To this day I close 99% of my live shows with this song, which is probably my most-requested tune.

So, what inspired this catchy little sendup of the early 2010s hipster subculture and 1950s rock ‘n’ roll?  And why do fans love it so much?

  1. I love that picture, Tyler. Rock n’ roll! 🙂

    What’s with the Alice band though? Couldn’t you find a cool bandana? I used to play tennis in a US flag bandana but I think you’d pull off a skull and crossbones bandana! 🙂 🙂 🙂
