There’s something about a grungy, female rock band that just screams confidence. Maddy Strassler, Beck Kitsis and Allie Brasch make up The Meltaways, a new Brooklyn-based band that couldn’t exude more confidence and badassery if they tried. Reminiscent of early work from The Donnas, we are really diggin’ their style. We’ve got the exclusive premiere for “Lemon,” the titular track off the upcoming 7 song EP.
Hard at work preparing for the release of their new album, The Meltaways have been touring to spread the news. If “Lemon” is any indicator, it’s absolutely news worth sharing in our eyes. Catchy, upbeat melodies with thrashing guitar and intense percussion weave in with lyrics that aren’t just there for lyrics’ sake. These ladies are opinionated, bold, and brassy. This song is sour and twisted. Check it out.
And don’t try to hold their hand. No one wants to hold your hand.
