Have you heard of TOMBOY yet? Their debut tape, released in January off Trashy Tapes, is short in length but with almost endless repeat value. This bold all-girl garage rock 3-piece pull no punches, riding surefire on their gravely groove through a range of tempos and styles. Easy head-bop backbeats and doo wop harmonies bounce in time with rumbling teutonic basslines and smart, incisive lyrics that sting. Their songs unfurl through deep, subterranean tones, steadily picking up jump-up punk energy until they swing heavy and fast like a wrecking ball, smashing your pissy, immature attitude and female stereotypes alike. Come dance in the rumble and forget your cares. If the burning energy of their tape in any indication, these Boston girls will be tearing it up THIS FRIDAY with kindred spirits Pottymouth and Chemical Peal at the always lovely Plough and Stars in Cambridge. Come out and just try not to have fun.
