The Splinters: Mysterious [mp3]

splinters

One of my favorite singles from last year was The Splinters‘ debut 7-inch Splintered Bridges. Mixing lo-fi garage rock with post punk and grrl pop, the band fit into everybody’s favorite niche genre of 2009. With compounded female vocals semi-shouted into microphones, ragged and gritty guitar riffs, and a lo-fi echoing tambourine, the girls are back with their first full-length, Kick. “Mysterious” fits perfectly aside “Splintered Bridges” with catchy vocal hooks and loud guitar riffs.

Kick comes out on March 9. Pick up your copy over at Double Negative Records.

    1. Totally! These guys were a favorite last year and would have made it onto my “bands to keep an eye on in 2010” list had I created one.

      I can’t wait to hear the full album.
