The Screaming Females :: Rose Mountain


Screaming_Females_RoseMountain_coverRose Mountain is de zesde studio CD in het tienjarig bestaan van het punktrio Screaming Females uit New Jersey. Meer dan voorheen moesten de liedjes deze keer ook echt liedjes zijn. En dat is glansrijk gelukt. Het is hard, het is snel, het leunt tegen hardrock aan, maar het is altijd melodieus. Door de stem van Marisa Paternoster doet het soms zelfs een beetje aan Blondie denken. Puike pokkeherrie.

Screaming Females had such a clear goal for their new album that it became almost a mantra: they wanted songs that were concise, crisp and melodic. That’s exactly what the New Jersey punk trio delivers on Rose Mountain, their sixth LP, due in February on Don Giovanni Records. The album is a milestone in a number of ways. Not only does Rose Mountain reflect a new approach to the band’s songwriting, the LP marks the first time Screaming Females have worked with an outside producer, and comes as the trio celebrates 10 years together. “I’m very pleased and proud of us as a band for playing together for so long,” says singer and guitarist Marissa Paternoster, who formed Screaming Females in 2005 with bassist Michael Abbate and drummer Jarrett Dougherty.
