Mermaidens

Mermaidens

Day 15 of the NZ Music Month song-a-day-May madness comes from Wellington neo-primitive trio Mermaidens.

‘Jenny Greenteeth’ is the lead song from a recent (February 2014) 3 song EP available from their Bandcamp page.

There’s a primal simplicity about this which is perfect rock and roll from the margins. Guitars and drums, recorded in big room, with a menacing, feral energy to it, and strong commanding vocals with the presence of early PJ Harvey about them. The rest of the EP is more of the same and well worth your Bandcamp name-your-price generosity.

Mermaidens is Lily Paris West – guitar, vocals; Gussie Larkin – guitar, vocals; Abe Hollingsworth – drums.
