JJ DOLL: JJ DOLL: 7”

NYC hardcore quartet JJ Doll is fucking awesome, but it’s tough to put your finger on one distinct reason. Maybe it’s their freaky song structures or shredding-yet-melodic and deliberately-atonal-at-times guitar that drives most of their songs. Maybe it’s their lead vocalist Sara’s style that jumps from poppy hooks and squeals, ala CSS, to classic punky articulation. Whatever it is, they’re doing it right. Great writing, great songs, great lyrics, all tied together with a really nice and simple record layout and insert. Very excited to hear what comes next. –Candace Hansen (Katorga Works)
