If you have ever wanted a record that brought back those pre 1990's vibes of hard rocking Nirvana She's on Heat is for you. Hailing from Auckland The Neo-Kalashnikovs know how to rock. From the drum shattering start of "Bohemia" a song reminiscent of Metallica's "Nothing else matters" I like it … lots.
Before I listened to She's on Heat I had the pleasure of talking to guitarist Volita Bioletti about her debut album. She said that her aim was to define a movement towards rock without the manufactured stupid girl stereotype. Judging from the first song off the album "Diamonds" I think she's achieved just that. From the twangy sting of what most certainly is a Gibson guitar my speakers imploded. However, what I really like about the lead single "Diamonds" is it's vintage distorted vocals that sound like lead singer Volita is singing down a well in Siberia.
My second favorite song off the swelteringly hot under the collar album was "Shining Star". It's more relaxed tone has a depth lyrically that punches home a theme of love with some tasty banjo. "In a State of Paranoia" was also a real stand out with a reminiscent Yeah Yeah Yeahs swag. Sick. http://snd.sc/QcQssJ free song 'I don't wanna be your friend" listen on soundcloud.
