Setting garage and pop sensibilities high in their MO, singer/guitarist Carmen Elle (DIANA, Donlands and Mortimer, Austra) and drummer Andy Smith (Doldrums) are a two-piece, but no small force to be reckoned with. The group’s performance wasn’t without some technical hiccups (Elle’s guitar kept unplugging), but where that denied the group an opportunity exhibit to what are really some irresistibly catchy songs that are cushioned by Elle’s vocals – ranging from soothing and soft to passionately unrestrained – the group made up in charisma. Definitely a group (and performers) to keep your eye on.
