Pretty Girls Make Graves

The New Romance



Published October 09, 2003.Pretty Girls Make GravesThe New Romance (Matador)Seattle’s Pretty Girls Make Graves became critic’s darlings with the amazing full-length debut Good Health, but their sophomore record is all the better. The New Romance is track after track of emotional punch that serves both the power of the music and the beauty of Andrea Zollo’s voice. The heavy edge has been stripped and Zollo scraps the riot grrrl style without losing credibility. The inventive, original style combined with power and purpose makes this an essential record of 2003. —Trevor MacLaren
