BAYONETTES: We’re Doomed: 7”EP

Mar 13, 2007

Not as stab-you-in-the-neck, hit-by-a-fire-truck X-Ray Spex as the first single; more in the pocket, looking for layers, finding their own way, and not afraid to sing and stay at mid tempo punk pop. There’s still a nice, serrated edge to Zoe’s voice (especially in the addicted-to-love song, “Hungry for You”), the playing’s in tune with early Jam’s jangling, tight guitars, and they’re zeroing in on that below-the-skin anxiety (focusing on prescription drugs, unrequited love, and the world being pretty fucked) which makes for compulsive flips when the record’s finished. Well played.
