Full disclosure: I pre-ordered VVomen’s debut EP immediately after listening to the three songs they have up on bandcamp. I’m having a hard time pinpointing this band’s exact sound, which is a good thing. Yeah, I said early At the Drive-In and HWM, but there’s something else in there I can’t quite put my finger on. Maybe some Gunmoll? Definitely some light Jawbreaker. I don’t know, and it’s going to drive me nuts.
But really, that doesn’t matter, because this band sounds great. There’s speak/shouting and singing, plenty of melody, and when I think things are mellowing out, they push me down and kick me in the head.
