I had written a lengthy complaint about being a student again. But then, I quickly deleted it, because I remembered for the past 4 days I’ve not had to get up earlier than midday, and I know that is a privilege that won’t last forever. Although maybe I should be getting up earlier than that? Maybe I should get out in the early morning fresh air and live life? One band that certainly makes me want to get up and DO STUFF are Joanna Gruesome.
Based in Cardiff, Joanna Gruesome are a female fronted grunge/noise-pop five piece, and boy do they make a racket. With a name like Joanna Gruesome, arguably you might expect a bit more of a racket, but what you actually get is a band who produce indie-pop gems slathered in 90’s grunge and punk influences, and it is awesome. The band are now streaming a new track entitled *takes lengthy breath* ‘Do You Really Wanna Know Why Yr Still In Love With Me?’, and it’s available on 7" vinyl via Happy Happy Birthday To Me right now. Stream both tracks from the 7" below.
