It’s been awhile since we heard from the folks at Kind Turkey Records, but that probably means they’re just cooking up something new for us, right? Correct! This time we’ve got a new 7″ from TWO TEARS.
Two Tears is fronted by Kerry Davis, one of the women behind the 90’s punk band Red Aunts. This is the latest work from Davis, and it’s certainly worth a few minutes of your undivided attention. Three brand new tracks fill out this 7″, coming through with a rowdy yet laid-back garage rock spirit and self-depreciating lyrics to boot (mainly in “Senso-Unico”). There’s definitely an eccentric approach to these songs as well.
The spikey, shredded guitars twang away while Davis weirdly chants in “Heisse Hexe”, which if I’m figuring this out correctly, translates to “hot witch”. There’s something strange about this song – it’s hard to take it seriously with all the peppy yelping. And although it’s strange, there’s a big fiery breakdown somewhere in the middle as Davis begs for help changing. Putting that one aside, “Senso-Unico” is probably the most standout track on this single. It starts off painfully slow but subtly gains some speed with the concentrated guitar chords. There’s definitely a badass feel that comes along with this song, sounding outlawish and undeniably serious with an obvious country twang drenched in reverb, which helps complement the weirdness. After a playful song like “Heisse Hexe”, there needs to be a track like this one to balance out the mood. Don’t forget about “Eat People” either, which definitely sticks to the weird attitude that we’re talking about. We should probably make it clear that it’s not a bad weird, but more like a playful and intentional kind of weird.
Check out two of the three tracks right below, and snag that 7″ while the colored edition is still available – there’s only 100 to go around! Kind Turkey also has some other singles coming in the near future that we are definitely looking forward to – “Dead Luke” might ring a bell.
