Joanna Gruesome - "Do You Really Wanna Know Why Yr Still In Love With Me" c/w "Lemonade Grrl" (HHBTM)

28 March 2013

Okay, gotta admit, love the name of the band, but what I love even more is this British quintet’s music. Joanna Gruesome specialize in quick, fast-paced upbeat indie-pop, and though only two songs in length, these two songs serve as a wonderful introduction to this band. The A-side, “Do You Really Wanna Know Why Yr Still In Love With Me” is a crunchy, noisy love song, replete with a duel boy/girl vocal charm that instantly wins over the listener. The flip side, “Lemonade Grrl” doesn’t vary from that simple formula, and that’s a very, very good thing! This little single is a mere tease from their forthcoming debut album, due later this year. Based on the quality of these two songs, bring it on!
