Storming out the gates with the thrashy “All The While”, the all grrrl punk quintet that is She’s The Band immediately wants to be clear about the fact that they are not the kind of girls you want to mess with (not that you should mess with any other girls). Remember Babes In Toyland? I’m sure these girls do and I’m fairly convinced they’ve heard of Hole and Bikini Kill as well.
What sets them apart from their influences is the fact that they’ve incorporated a piano in almost all of the songs, sometimes mixed under the guitars and crashing drums ever so subtly or all the way in the front in songs like “Undertone” and “Did I Forget”. Other than the piano, there are not too many subtleties to be found on “One From The Top Shelf”… these girls are out to rip your face off and already wrote the soundtrack to go with it. They even incorporated some slower, more ominous parts for when they’re creeping up on you. Good stuff!
