Two tracks that fondly recall Hole at the height of Courtney Love’s powers. Grungy, fuzzed out, power-chord driven, riot grrl, ROCK AND ROLL.!
Meres takes from the glorious grunge past, but builds on it masterfully to create something that feels less like a 90s throwback, and more like something new and exciting.
‘CUT’ is pure ‘Celebrity Skin‘ – Glossy, stoner-grunge full of spunk and swagger with a wild sing-along-chorus that is totally stadium ready.
‘Think You Like This’ is the exact opposite. If ‘CUT’ is ‘Celebrity Skin’ for the 21st Century, then ‘Think You Like This’ is Meres’ ‘Doll Parts’ – Dark, swirling guitars with no percussion and lead vocals coming from a hole in your soul. Powerful, emotional and moving.
Good stuff. Fondly recalls the triumphant past of the genre, but moves it forwards with a confident swagger.
Listen to both tracks below. You can download this release from Meres’ Bandcamp page for a mere $2 minimum. Which is nice. You can also find Meres on her official website, Facebook page, or Instagram. Oooo!
