Powderhead – Live Powder (E.P.)

(S/R – 2019)

Female fronted band who crank out this 4-tracker that comprises of three originals and a cover tune for you to get your teeth and of course ears into.

 

A killer up-tempo act they are too and in the past few years have supported the likes of Santa Cruz and Chris Holmes to name but a few up and down the UK. It's straight to the point as well with the 5-piece taking no prisoners and delivering a fantastic rendition of Guns 'N' Roses 'Rocket Queen' that many avoid touching due to its high ended vocal complexity to say the least – Powderhead nail it as well.

 

The 3 originals ain't too shabby either such as the opening ballsy and crunchy sounds of 'The Butcher', the blasting and heads down 'Cut It Loose' with the throaty backing vocals or closing 'Toxicate' with the thunderous well-meshed guitar and drums solidness to match.

 

No doubt amazing live!

8/10
