New Band Of The Day #96: Montrose Man

montrose man

Debut Album Lazy Looker is out now.

Who: Mat Haywood, Meg MacDuff, Eric Kratz.

What: Alternative rock / grunge. (FFO: Hole, Bikini Kill, riot grrrl)

Where: Chicago, IL.

Why: What we’ve got here is a trio that takes the snotty and punchy vocals of the early 90’s riot grrrl movement and places them in front of quite a muscular alternative rock sound that likes some riffs and fuzz.

‘Nadia’, streaming below is a prime example. Led by an angular, fuzzed up riff, powerful production and drumming and Meg MacDuff’s impassioned vocals, the track aims to equally balance violence and melody. It is quite the success to be fair.

Order Lazy Looker via Bandcamp.
