A four-piece all-girl group who met at an army recruitment centre in Blackheath. Such a perfectly bizarre band origin story, they must be good!
And indeed they are, their basic four-piece bass-drums-guitar-singer set-up combined with the dark vocal intonations has made them a band likely to be followed be a stream of endless comparisons - ‘Ian Curtis re-incarnated as a female!’ reads one facebook comment, there was something about the ‘Girlband version of The Horrors’ floating around somewhere. There are obvious comparisons you can draw between singer Jehn and other dark mysterious frontwomen like, say, Crystal Castles’ Alice Glass. But from my stand-point, these comparisons are bit reduntant.
They’re a great new band with heady basslines, distinct vocals, sharp beats and talented guitar-playing. They create a dark echoey soundscape which is genuinely original compared to the majority of the music scene at the moment.
