New Jersey’s punk icons Screaming Females released their seventh full-length album on February 23rd. They are by no doubts breaking the boundaries of their so far known and loved straight-forward indie rock. Being more expansive and imaginative, while evoking the energy and spontaneity of their live shows, is hopefully a milestone in them reaching a broader audience.
Screaming Females is a three-piece rock band from New Brunswick, New Jersey. Marissa Paternoster (guitar, vox), Mike Abbate (bass), and Jarrett Dougherty (drums) formed the band in 2005, and in over a decade they recorded seven albums.
With their DIY approach, they toured the country and the world continuously. It’s been said, that their live shows are even better than their albums.
All At Once
On Vinyl, the new release is a double album. Apparently, it can be heard that it has been recorded in Seattle and stands in its tradition while staying unique all the way. New instruments such as synths, Wurlitzers, and xylophones are introduced to their raw sound and opens new dimensions.
