This female fronted band from Göteborg, Sweden plays catchy garage punk with a nice touch of pop mixed in. Vocalist and guitarist Johanna Hellqvist has a voice that reminds me a bit of JOAN JETT in places, but still keeps sounding fresh and nowhere near being a copy, but the timber is there.
These four songs have a nice crunchy and tough sound that give them a nice edge. The guitar playing is top-notch with some jangle and nice leads, the drumming and the bass mesh together perfectly, giving the songs a bit of a swagger that gets you moving. It’s nice that the bass is mixed in loud enough to be heard and it really gives the songs a lot of depth. The songs are just a touch sloppy which gives them a fantastic live feel to them, not sterile and pretty, but tough and meaty. Every one of the songs is a winner on this four track E.P.
I’ve listened to this a lot and it just seems to get better the more that I play it. Grab a copy and play it loud and get them to make more music in the future because only four songs isn’t enough.
