Sounds | The Pretty Reckless, Death by Rock and Roll

Atijd een dubbel gevoel gehad bij deze New Yorkers rond 'poeze' Taylor Momsen. Ik nam deze ex-Gossip Girl en voormaig topmodel niet bijster serieus, kon echter niet om de krachtige, rauwe strot en haar stage presence heen en zo nu en dan leverden ze nog een goede song af ook. De kentering? Toen Taylerken iedereen omver wist te blazen met haar performance op het Chris Cornell Tribute Concert en daar één van mijn favs (Loud Love) eer aandeed én ook Rusty Cage nailde! Death by Rock and Roll is een ferme hard rock stomper met een bluesy sfeer. Melodieus en perfect om mee te bleiren tijdens concerten zonder cheesy over te komen. Fuck keys, all guitars en dan die powerstrot van Momsen. Love it!

Ter info

Formed in New York City during 2008, The Pretty Reckless and late producer Kato Khandwala initially made waves with their 2010 debut, Light Me Up. After countless gigs, the band returned with Going To Hell in 2014. Not only did the record crash the Top 5 of the Billboard Top 200, but it also ignited three #1 hits—the gold-certified “Heaven Knows” (the biggest rock song of 2014), “Fucked Up World,” and “Follow Me Down”—a feat that had not been accomplished by a female-fronted group since The Pretenders in 1984. Meanwhile, their third offering, Who You Selling For, saw them return to #1 on the Mainstream Rock Songs Chart with “Take Me Down,” which cemented them as “the first band to send its first four singles to #1 on the chart,” according to Billboard. Praise followed from Vogue, Nylon, and more as the quartet lit up television shows such as Letterman and Conan. With over half-a-billion streams, they headlined countless sold out shows and toured with Guns N’ Roses and many other heavy hitters.
