The debut EP by The Wet Darlings.
“Dripping with pure emotional intensity, Lute's voice resonates through a crushing guitar presence...the disc is a raw and captivating aural retreat,” - Kyle Riesz – Uweekly Magazine
Appropriately dubbed ‘sexpot rock’ by Columbus alt. rag The Other Paper, the sound is heavy and the vocals are big, but rarely does the music ever lose its sense of humor. There’s a strain of sarcasm running through tracks like “Vampires” and “Pretty’d” that’s equal parts personal and self deprecating – but is still potent enough to stick like red wine on a white corset. The album opener and first single “Bicycle” winks at its influences without ever treading on retro pastiche. The short blasts of guitar-wall testosterone punctuate Lute’s seemingly innocent metaphors - until you realize that she’s not be as innocent as she lets on. Innocent or not, that juxtaposition is the band’s calling card.
