Young Widows - "Kerosene Girl"

February 13, 2014 -

Dominick Knowles

A modest slew of balls-out rock bands have surfaced recently to counter the woozy synth patches and opiated reverb of acts like DIIV, Youth Lagoon, etc. etc. Young Widows are three albums and six EPs deep, so they aren't exactly burgeoning. But their single "Kerosene Girl" takes all those traits that make so much of indie rock a veritable Oxycontin binge--buried vocals, heavily treated guitars, you know the deal--and reformulates them into something that sounds like Franz Ferninand and a flaming pentagram collided via nuclear fusion. Have a listen on their SoundCloud.
