DAME: Self-titled: 7” EP

Sep 20, 2017

Dame’s sophomore offering, after 2015’s Charm School, is a peek at what makes the Boston-based quintet exciting to watch. Here are three super dynamic songs which capture the band’s ability to make dark, pop-inspired anthems that manage to cut through the baggage of ‘50s-inspired rockabilly and, instead, end up where you’d always wanted riot grrrl to end up. It’s a tight, ethereal eleven minutes that brings the horror punk qualities of the Misfits or Murder City Devils without any of the cartoonishness. It is mixed perfectly to give you a super clean path into a darker realm. –Theresa W. (Charm School, charmschoolrecords.bigcartel.com)
