Do You Want Power

by Web Intern

The Ettes’ girl garage rock with some serious vintage flair reverbs through Do You Want Power.

The Ettes are a spirited garage-rock
trio from Nashville via Los Angeles and New York. While their approach is simple, their sound is as diverse as the web of cities they’ve called home. Many of the songs on their third album, Do You Want Power, pay homage to the garage-rock gal groups of the ’60s, with 
reverb-soaked production, pounding drums, snakelike guitars, and singer Coco’s sweet but gnarly howl. Other times, like on “Modern Game,” they channel ’90s rock mavens Liz Phair and PJ Harvey. Some of the songs here are repetitive in their musical structures, but the Ettes work in a few surprises, like when they pull out gorgeous country ballad “Love Lies Bleeding,” and tough-talking track “I Can Be Your Lover (But I Can’t Be Your Baby),” which showcases Coco’s vocal charisma. Overall, it’s a grand old time.
