LEOPARD PRINT TASER: Teeth Are Not Bones: 7” EP

Leopard Print Taser have come out fighting: in a little over a year, this Somerville combo of experienced hardcore and explosive new raw talent have gone beyond buzz into a full-on essential part of the scene. With two members of Boston favorites Lunglust and two members who hadn’t played in a live band before, Leopard Print Taser brings in the best of punk. It’s tight without being reigned in, with Leila Bower’s vocals moving between frustrated growls and sarcastic recitation in a way that highlights how playful the band can be while still hitting hard on topics like abuse, misogyny, and figuring out the difference between being who you are and being someone else. This EP is ready to explode; full of ideas and pathways that’ll become a great LP. Can’t wait to see it. –Theresa W. (Tor Johnson / War Fever)
