SOTD: Joanna Gruesome – Sugarcrush

If you describe your music as influenced by the Riot Grrrl movement, with the art rock of The Velvet Underground and have written a record which kicks out against homophobia and sexism, I’m gonna listen to you. The obnoxiously loud guitars which open Sugarcrush may trick you into believing you will have to turn down your speakers before the vocals kick in, but no, rather than the usual punk-rock squawk we are greeted by a delightfully delicate set of voices. This harmonious combination of hard rock and indie make Joanna Gruesome someone I’m going to have to keep my eye on.
