The A-Side, 'Pussy Bow', sets the post-whatever-punk, chunky tone. There's some awkward chant style vocals that turn into yelling rage by the end. A weird repeated melody that really gets into a punk place, and all my worries about the tone of other myspace tracks all going to a safe echo, twee, kittens place are gone, they're in that Best Coast, Dum Dum neighborhood, but then they live just on the edge of cute and dirty punk St.. If they have a little of both of those places, well that's something new. If Frankie and the O's and The Fresh and Onlys combined would that be terrible? Probably since I just tried to force it.
A track not on this single, 'Coasting' is a great instrumental (?!) real loud, great melody, and again it gets distorted and they go all maniac on the drums, I appreciate this is getting dirty...I've heard a lot of cute, and dangerous is more exciting, let's face it.
'Kids', takes it back down again, this gets a little sloppy and HELL YES, they're willing to experiment with this drone chorus and buried vocals, but the intricacies are still there, they're still interested in a solid song.
I just noticed this is a freaking duo...of Madison and Fiona. Thankfully they are playing live so I'm definitely going to catch them myself soon. Hopefully they have a couple of these singles left.
