Introducing: Girl One and the Grease Guns
Girl One and the Grease Guns have a great sound reminiscent of early electro-rock bands and an interesting visual style in composing their videos. I think the name is pretty good as well. I don't know much more about them as I suspect the group members' names - Sissy Space Echo, Warren Betamax, Charles Bronson Burner and Bruce LeeFax - were selected some time after Christening. The UK's Squirrel Records has the honor of bringing the band's music to the world and have released three 7" recordings so far. Here is the video for the April release, "Driving Without Headlights (Once Again)".
Imagine Manhattan Love Suicides repurposed as a subversive synth pop band. It is glorious if you try.
