[79/100]   
04/08/2011, Didier BECU

We know, you read so much about little and unsigned bands that at times it's as much fun as reading a telephonebook, but for this one you better sit down as this band got fronted by four women from which one is no one else than Mushy.

Musicfans who are into Mannequin-stuff immediately know who we're talking about. Never the less it has to be said that the music from this Rome-based band is totally different.

When holding this very fine EP in our hands (printed at 350 copies!) we almost couldn't believe that this was actually made in 2011 as Simona Ferrucci's vocals took us away to some galaxy that is situated in the mid 80's.

Yes, Winter Severity Index reminded us of the days when Sad Lover & The Giants ruled the airwaves (kind of) as these four women create the same synthdriven melancholic pop that seems far away from this world.

On this EP you get four tracks (well five if you count the bonus track "Motionless" as well) and they're an absolute must for 80's addicts or for modern people who are just fed up by the current radio-crap.

To be checked out says Peek-A-Boo!

I regularly come across animal remains at various stages of decomposition. That started to affect me, and that's where the concept of the record was born.
