Quantcast
Danger Is

Powerhouse vox, Coco, conjures up old-school girl rock with the rest of The Ettes on Danger Is.

“I’m just getting fucking warmed up,” Ettes frontwoman Coco growls into the mic on the last of two live songs off the band’s latest EP, Danger Is. The Ettes manage to embody the vintage-chic girl groups of yesteryear while nodding to the late ’70s New York punk scene, resulting in a visually stunning group that oozes sensuality. Coco’s vocals have that combination of vulnerability and raw female power we’ve come to love in powerhouses such as Beth Ditto and Karen O. As she purrs, “Are you bored/Let’s die together” on “Lo and Behold,” bandmates Jem and Poni pound their bass and drums, respectively, providing deep, plodding rhythms that build into a barrage of rock ‘n’ roll cacophony. From the delicious marriage of Coco’s fuzz-pedal and ’60s-inspired rhythmic piano on the first track, “No Home,” it’s clear that the Ettes are a force to be reckoned with.
