The Sharp Ease
I caught wind of this band after reading an interview with them in the recent issue of Arthur Magazine. The Sharp Ease have been tearing it up around L.A. for a while now but it seems that they are sorely underappreciated outside of their native city. Running in the same vein as Love Is All only much more consistent, they bang out energetic, political riot grrrlesque pop anchored by the powerful and pleasing vocals of singer Paloma Parfry. Their album "Going Modern" was released last year and again I'm amazed I haven't heard about this until now. They've just released a new EP "Remain Instant" on olFactory Records and hopefully they'll spread some love and tour. If you're in the L.A. area and as if you didn't need one more reason to go, check them out at Arthur Nights.
