There’s no room for boring.
Label: Father/Daughter Records
Released: 6th October 2017
Formed of members from Tacocat, Chastity Belt and Lisa Prank, Who Is She?’s debut LP ‘Seattle Gossip’, is a short but sweet encounter. With every track being under three minutes long, there’s no room for boring and fun is at every corner.
Covering everything important from Jared Leto’s My So-Called Life alter-ego Jordan Catalano, the relationship between Courtney Cox and David Arquette in Scream, and MySpace friendship rankings, ‘Seattle Gossip’ talks about everything you would expect a Seattle girl-punk supergroup to talk about. It’s a 00s and 90s nostalgic trip, with relatable everyday-isms thrown into the mix.
Channelling the raw surf pop-punk of Tacocat’s first full-length, most tracks are sugary delights with hooks at a seemingly endless disposal, but the album’s closer of ‘Angry Bitches’ is a grungy, feedback-ridden riot grrrl ode that the record would feel incomplete without.
‘Seattle Gossip’ will have you reaching for your butterfly clips and on the next flight to Seattle in no time. Jasleen Dhindsa
