ACT NAME: Kamikaze Girls
GENRE: Grunge, Shoegaze, Rock
HOME TOWN: Leeds
MUSICAL FAMILY TREE: Bully, Mannequin Pussy, Petrol Girls
WHY CARE: The shimmering wall of distorted guitars and thunderous drum sounds that this duo create are just one part of the picture, often acting as a vehicle for Lucinda Livingstone’s reverb-laden vocals and deeply emotional lyrics. Packed with raw emotion, she vents openly about her personal issues, pausing only on brief occasions for some catchy guitar hooks. On repeat listens of their recently released debut album “Seafoam”, it becomes clear that this band have a vision that sets them apart from others in the DIY scene that they champion, and they are realizing it through meaningful and polished rock anthems.
KILLER TRACK: “Berlin”
