The Cincinnati natives take hints from garage-punk bands like the Mummies and classic girl groups to make noisy, trashy punk-pop music. Bridget Battle is the bold, energetic frontwoman of Tweens whose super sassy vocal stylings might remind you of Bay Area rock ‘n’ roller Tina ... Read More

Bianco has Gwen Stefani down to a tee and who ... Read More
