Hit me hard with a girl who can whine. Vancouver two-piece the Pack A.D.’s first disc delivers solid blues-inspired songs from first riff to last. Becky Black has the essential rock ’n’ roll voice: she spits, she moans, she agonizingly teeters between feelings and then pushes herself over the edge.
This Terror is the most ear-splitting, foot-stomping song on the record. Maya Miller pounds the toms, and I believe every word Black says. If they really are trying to kill her, it must be because she’s so good it’s threatening.
The Pack A.D. hits Sneaky Dee’s March 7.
