Like A Motorcycle

Dress Decent (Independent)


An EP of six songs, with only one topping three minutes, this is lean, mean and fucking good. From the first riff and waah-oh of “Hitting The Bottle,” the Halifax trio (Jillian Comeau, Kim Carson and Michelle Skelding)stakes its claim to a sweaty, relentless sound, tapping into a particular be-leathered badass rock vein. What makes Like A Motorcycle stand out is a real understanding of how to establish a solid melody, harmonizing voices over squalling guitars and propulsive drums. That and songs about good booze, bad love and two-wheeled sex machines. A highly promising debut, which along with skills honed by their regular gigs, should see them explode forthwith.
