Die Pretty - Battle Over Brooklyn EP

Genre - Pop / Punk / Rock
Label -

Track listing -

01 - 7th Avenue
02 - Let Me Out!
03 - Voices

"Die Pretty formed in 2005. Brother and Sister Skip and Sarah stemmed Die Pretty from their previous band of 8 years. With their new aggressive style of combining punk and catchy rock they have graced the stage with such acts as Goldfinger, Everclear, Pennywise, The Living End and many more. They have been called, "The Punk Rock Hope" by Brooklyn Music Magazine. Their style has been described as sticks of dynamite with a punk rock wick."
Sarah’s vocals, to me anyway come across as a sort of mix between Stevie Nicks and No Doubt's Gwen Stefani. The band has grown musically since their 2009 release, Bittersweet, which was typical break neck punk rock album, with huge melodies. This Ep shows a more melodic side to the band, 7th Avenue becoming an instant sing along, even on its first spin. Let Me out! is more akin to the band’s debut, super fast punk riffs with a huge melody over the top. Voices closes out this 3 track Ep, with its 80's New Wave feel, and I must say I found this Ep thoroughly enjoyable!

I think we should expect big things from these punk and punkettes!

Well worth checking out!!
