From the kid in the basement trying to get the fingering just right on his new B.C. Rich, to the hardened metal-head listening for the thousandth time: Wicked World is bound to be the track kept on repeat for the better part of the summer, and kept at the top of the playlist for good.
Flashback plays like an emergency broadcast, urging listeners to go back to the days when we weren’t isolated or prisoners to our earbuds & tiny screens. It’s a call to come back to the club, to stand next to a real person, to experience the beautiful chaos of live music.
The only thing more powerful than the performance is the writing, and surely the only thing better than listening to Dirty Machine – is seeing them live.
It’s a song about love – real, exciting love, in the here & now. Auburn Hair is a testament to the bright, the beautiful, and the ephemeral, and it’s the best song I’ve heard this year.
Guilting not only the guilty, but the ignorant; Intimidation Doll seeks to make domestic assault everyone’s business. With a song as well constructed, incredibly conceived & musically adept as this, PMKS have every chance to make that happen.
Exactly the band to make you remember what it is to be human. Every note is flawlessly hit. Every aspect of their sound is perfectly cobbled together to make a beautiful, terrifying, screaming, soaring single built to wake a generation asleep at the wheel.
It’s a sound that brings you home & comforts you, readying you for the well-polished whisper of Joe Bailey’s voice as he carries you through a love song you can’t help but love back.
