CASTRO: Nocturnally Yours: 7” EP

Slick record cover, first riffs sounded hella rock… uh oh. Wait… what’s this?? Amazing female vocals?? Synapses start snapping. Sounds familiar. Head nods, more guitars. This is great, really great. More pulses through the brain. Life But How To Live It? from Norway, that’s what the vocals sound like, a real fave from the ‘80s. The music is pretty slick but works just fine, almost like the first Ten Foot Pole album (that’s a compliment, by the way). After a few spins I check my facts and, low and behold, the vocalist is Katja from Life But How To Live It? I can’t remember what I had for breakfast but can spot a vocal from twenty years ago. Other members have done time in well-known Norwegian bands like Angor Wat and seem to be even older than me! This is fantastic, driving punk with great songwriting and those vocals? Oy vey. Get. On. It.
