Welsh rockers Joanna Gruesome are extremely skilled at finding tiny fissures in their otherwise skin-tight pop songs to rupture through into aggressive atonal noise. These cataclysmic detours result in the band’s exceptionally dynamic noise-pop and their latest single, “Honestly Do Yr Worst”, is a perfect example of this. The split-vocals charm like a Belle and Sebastian chorus until the the track crashes face-first into a screeching wall of sound. Front-woman Alana McArdle sings in a classical soprano not often heard in contemporary punk that functions as a stark contrast to the angular composition of the song.
