RADIUM GRRRLS: Pro Choice: 7”

Nov 22, 2017

This Swedish band is named after female American factory workers who suffered from radiation poisoning after working with radium paint during and after World War I, something I’d not heard of previously. This debut release certainly channels the anger I imagine was felt back then as women began to fall ill and even die after their wartime exertions. With members of Totem Skin and Livet Som Insats involved, Radium Grrrls already has hardcore a pedigree. Lead vocalist Emilia Henriksson has the perfect voice for conveying the band’s rage over intense musical outbursts. –Rich Cocksedge (Adagio830, adagio830.de)
