Perfect Pussy – ‘Interference Hits’

0

‘Interference Hits’, the new single from the Syracuse-based four-piece is post-punk perfection. And Perfect Pussy are only now releasing their debut album.

The track is defined by duality; an off-kilter riff fights with sections of rhythm guitar driving on relentlessly behind Meredith Graves’ fervid lyrics. Pleading with us to validate the insecurities of a 20-something, she asks ‘When did we say yes to love?’, the increasingly erratic guitars building to a ecstastic climax which ends abruptly, leaving stripped-back reverb. This lingers, unashamedly present, like a glance held slightly too long.

Critics may have drawn easy parallels with current noise-pop incarnations such as Sleigh Bells but these are misjudged; here, Alexis Krauss’ polished purr is replaced with the unadulterated passion of 90’s riot grrls via the low-fi distortion of a female-fronted Sonic Youth. In a genre which celebrates noise, which tows the line between coherence and chaos, Perfect Pussy has struck gold with this fresh, unprecocious offering.

9/10

Perfect Pussy’s debut album Say Yes To Love is released 18th March on NPR.
