The Infamous HER Fires Up the Flirting In New Single, “Make You Mine”


Coming in hot from the New York City underground is the fiery and versatile stylings of The Infamous HER, hypnotizing listeners with a groovy new single and music video, “Make You Mine.”


Praised for their glamour, inventiveness, and attitude, The Infamous HER is led by charismatic frontwoman Monique Staffile, who never fails to put a spell on listeners, be it with her captivating presence, good humor, or natural fearlessness. Together, The Infamous HER has traveled the realms of glam rock, new wave, punk, metal, and contemporary pop, continuously leaving listeners guessing their next move.


In their newest release, The Infamous HER brings fans a hot psychedelic rock song with a music video directed by David Dutton that takes us straight back to the 80s. “Make You Mine” is a supremely playful, enchanting, and flirty tune that’s bound to make you swing your hips to the beat. On another note, it’s pretty appropriate that The Infamous HER is naming their upcoming album Hula Hoop.


Diving deeper into “Make You Mine,” the track kicks off with a heavy and groovy psych-rock instrumental alongside Monique’s subtle do’s and da’s that set the dreamy and alluring tone. As she begins painting sensual scenes of mentally chasing after someone ’til it makes her weak, The Infamous HER backs her up with bouncy background vocals and vibrant psych-rock instrumentals that keep us hooked.


Honorable mention to the song’s music video, which Dutton has put together perfectly. Everything from the faded footage, furniture, and clothing screams the 80s, maybe even 70s, but one thing’s for sure: Monique Staffile is indeed the star, and she’s got her eyes set on someone like a hawk.


The Infamous HER is quickly making their way to the mainstream, and tracks like “Make You Mine” are a prime example. Watch the video on YouTube and find the song on all digital streaming platforms.


Welcome to Buzz, The Infamous HER! We love the flirtatious and groovy feel of your recent release, “Make You Mine.” What inspired your group to create this spicy new single?


The band and I all hunkered down in our house/recording studio and wrote this ditty. I must have been feeling sexy that day, and the boys were spicy so we just started jamming on it and got it.


What made your group want to lean into the sultry sounds of psychedelic rock for “Make You Mine?” Why did that sound fit the vibe best?


When we were writing the song, we had fun, played writing, and jammed. We didn’t have a second verse written when I sang the demo, so I thought, how bout I just sing the first verse in French, and we use it for the second verse? Mind you, I don’t speak a word of French! We kept it and never changed the second verse.


What was your experience shooting the “Make You Mine” music video alongside director David Dutton? What was that collaborative process like?


We worked with David Dutton 10 years ago and knew we had to bring him back on board for this video. He also directed the next singles coming out. He’s great. We work amazingly well together, always thinking of crazy ideas and pushing each other to take the video one step further. He came up with using his 360-degree camera for the whole video, and I loved that!


What was the highlight of creating “Make You Mine”? Whether it was the songwriting process or the music video, what moments did you enjoy most?


I loved it all! The band and I had a week-long sleepover party at my house and we wrote the whole record, writing together while living together is just a dream. Jamming, writing, drinking, eating, what else could you want?! Then, when we shot the video with David Dutton, he also stayed at my house. So now, another sleepover with the band AND the director. It was just awesome!


Could you drop some hints regarding your upcoming album, Hula Hoop? How does “Make You Mine” set the tone for what’s to come?


Hula Hoop is my favorite album I’ve done. It’s full of vintage flare, rock n roll, attitude, and good vibes. It’s cheeky, sincere, and sexy, hopefully making the listener want to turn it up and put it on repeat.
