Joanna Gruesome #2 - Do You Really Wanna Know...

Facebook

It's been a while since we've had new Joanna Gruesome material to listen to but that wait is finally over with news of their signing to Fortuna Pop and a new track, the impressively titled Do You Really Wanna Know Why Yr Still in Love with Me". Their signing is a perfect fit with Joanna Gruesomes co-vocalists Lan's former band Evans The Death (least I think it's former now) and the wonderful Shrag already on the London label, put those two acts into the mixing pot with a healthy dash of 90's scuzz pop and you might just make this new track...

"Do You Really Wanna Know..." starts with super sweet tandem vocals, chiming guitar hooks and thunderbolt drumming which combine to an irresistible fuzzed-up melody which builds with fast-tempo and to a crashing crescendo of super-charged, sloppy as fuck dissonance. Intoxicating and more-ish, the single is hopefully a great sign of things to come in 2013.

The band play on the Fortuna Pop Winter Sprinter in early January at the Lexington. Four great nights of music with Tender Trap, Allo' Darlin and Comet Gain also lined-up to play as well as the aforementioned acts - all the details and tickets can be found here - the best possible start to your New Year for sure.
