FLORENCE NIGHTINGALES: Self-titled: 7” EP

Nov 08, 2006

It’s sort of strange that an all-girl, young band from Alabama reminds me of a death rock band from early ‘80s L.A., but they do. The Florence Nightingales owe quite a bit to 45 Grave, if they’re aware of it or not, from the haunted vocals, the strong singing, the spooky subject matter (sleeping in spider beds and a song about a banshee), the sparse, mid-tempo arrangements, and dark, straight-ahead, playing-in-a-sarcophagus recording. Enjoyable.
