I wonder if The Mysterines were sat on their sofa in Liverpool one evening when The Supremes ‘You Keep Me Hanging On’ came on the radio and as a group they decided “let’s take the sentiment of this sugary Motown classic and turn it into a full throttle heavy fucking grunge rock assault”. Even if that wasn’t the real genesis of the record, that’s exactly what they went and did. Lia Metcalfe’s voice is a fierce, deep dark howl and George Favager’s bass is turned right up loud as a clear, straight forward invitation to the centre of the mosh pit.
The Mysterines have put out some absolutely slamming tracks since 2019 (see I Win Every Time, Bet Your Pretty Face and Who’s Your Girl if you want evidence) and have now announced debut album Reeling for release via Fiction Records on March 11th 2022. This is looking like a classic in the making.
