UNDER THE RADAR: Kamikaze Girls – “Berlin”.
Kamikaze Girls are the Leeds-based duo of front-woman Lucinda Livingstone and drummer Conor Dawson. The pair have this week announced their signing to Big Scary Monsters, who will put out Seafoam, the band’s debut album, in June.
Kamikaze Girls have also shared the first single from it, Berlin, which suggests they’ve channelled that numbness into something considerably more angry. Berlin is ferocious; a vocal shriek the match of former Joanna Gruesome singer Alanna McArdle, the heaviest drums we’ve heard in years and a touch of the more tuneful end of the Riot Grrrl scene. There’s even a delightfully melodic break down thrown in for good measure, all in all it’s really rather special.
