There’s a certain timelessness to the 60s girl group sounds; even when used as kitsch, it’s still utterly charming. So, it should only be fitting that She/Beast, the project of Katja Nielsen, draws from that period for musical inspiration as she moves to announce Violent Tendencies. Our first listen definitely has that sort of swinging with your partner vibe, cheek to cheek on the dance floor as tin-covered stars hang loosely from the ceiling. Still, what makes Nielsen’s approach a bit more unique is that she’s still got that penchant for punk aesthetics remaining; it’s the attitude left over from her role in Arre! Arre!. Stoked to hear how this all shapes up in the long run; the LP is out via PNKSLM on October 22nd.
