Fuck yeah...!!! Off the streets of Stockholm (originally from a small town in Sweden), this is nothing but red hot grrrl rrrawk. Sahara Hotnights are the Runaways multiplied 4X on guitar/drum intensity and rhythmic speed. Sahara Hotnights are the Go-Go's on vocal sensibility (vocal melodies and backing harmonies are just unbelievable). Sahara Hotnights have Le Tigre's ripping bass drive and Kathleen Hannah's riot grrrl attitude. This recording is so drenched in adrenaline, you too will feel the spit and sweat spilling onto you.

# 3: Dig this! Feedback distortion with a boat siren/alarm sounding synth bass intro; drilling guitar riff breaking into a rebellious chorus ("Breakdown"); goose-bumping backing vocals; ripping bass bridge into a neurotic guitar solo. Can we just fuck now?

# 1: Le Tigre-ish bass intro and riff based guitar drive. Mosh-pitting tempo and intensity. Goddamn... riot grrrl vocals and tight backing melodies!

# 2: Straight up balls-out punk-rockish tune. Listen to the lead vocals and feel those blue veins swelling as if they were to burst out of her neck. Lead vocal intensity is stretched to the limit. Ooooh, nice bass/drum/vocal break bridging into the chorus.

# 4: Story-telling guitar work and catchy vocals. This has Joan Jett written all over... Enough said!!!

PLAY - PLAY - PLAY...!!!
