In our January review of their single video ‘Rock The Reaper’, we designated that: “The gals do it right, in complimenting the outrageous grunge-crunch of ‘Wolfbite’ (which debuted in November of 2017)”. And that: “‘Rock The Reaper’ is a malaise of rock crunch, softened by rhythmic nonchalance.”
Since that time, the ladies have garnered some well deserved hype and fandom (from folks like us at CHF and from others).
They return this time with a live session on KEXP and did the glam rock with a twist of high-school rock thang, which they do so well.
The session included singles: Turn It Up, Rock The Reaper, Boy of Summer, Mercury.
Betsy Wright brings the snarl with the soft ‘get yourself together outside hand slap’ attitude; and her partner in crime, Laura King driving that ‘slap’ and says ‘told you so’ to your face, with a punk-like kiss to your cheek.
It’s a damn good time.
Bat Fangs will start their summer tour from that awesome place called Brooklyn NYC end of May, with Hop Along (another of our faves).
