Screaming Females’ seven years as a band, four full-length albums and 700 globe-spanning live shows has made them difficult to miss.
Through it all, the New Brunswick, New Jersey trio have continued to exude a frenetic energy which is built upon the zeitgeist of America’s punk and indie underground yet has always remained forward-looking.
Fittingly, for Screaming Females’ 5th album ‘Ugly’, the band enlisted legendary recording engineer Steve Albini, famed for his unique ability to capture the ferociousness of a live performance while delivering gorgeous sonic clarity.
Screaming Females | It All Means Nothing
The album’s 14 tracks reaffirm the touchstones of the band; they can still shred and front-woman Marissa Paternoster can still unleash a powerful howl. But it doesn’t end there.
The album ushers in new explorations for the band, a truly remarkable feat considering their already prolific output. ‘Ugly’ has the perfect combination of raw energy and honed musicianship that produces the type of rock & roll which is still a force to be reckoned with.
