This is a refreshing take on a lot of early and mid-80s female rock ‘n’ roll, with a bit of mid-90s influence as well. Killola lead off with “This Is How the World Ends,” and it sounds like a Pat Benatar cover with Veruca Salt backing vocals.
“Strung Out on Sunshine” might be continuing the theme with a vague reference to “Walking on Sunshine” by Katrina & the Waves. I don’t know. The music sounds more like a Republica B-side, but the vocals again remind one of that Joan Jett ’80s style, or perhaps a more talented Courtney Love.
“Is This a Love Song” shows that this band can sound like any era’s best, with music reminiscent of both Pretty Girls Make Graves and The Go-Go’s. I didn’t even know that this was possible.
“Personal Graveyard” lets the band take on a sound a little more unique to itself, a real driving rock anthem. Add it all up, and you get a band that at worst is a guilty pleasure or at best gives you an excuse to grow a mullet so you can be cool when you see them perform live.
