Fereshta “Global Citizen”

August 7, 2011

Straightforward female-fronted rock ‘n’ roll here, right down to the guitar. Maybe two rungs below heavy metal on the ladder, but make no mistake: There’s no pop here.
“Motherland” has a melody I’ve heard before and guitar that screams U2. Put it together, and it could be like The Lightfighters or Picnic. The familiarity continues on “Wonderlust,” which has the same bass line as “Stray Cat Strut” by the Stray Cats. When Juliana Hatfield did the double album, a lot of stuff from Juliana’s Pony sounded like this stuff, although Juliana couldn’t sing at a level this mediocre if she tried. No, Fereshta’s strength is in the mix and consistency. It’s not necessary to sing the way Hatfield does to make this style successful.
Maybe the attempt is to be goth with “Untie My Hands,” but it’s not synthy enough for that. At any rate, this track is darker than you’d expect, so maybe you can sneak off and have one clove. They’re called carcinogens for a reason, though.
“Tombstones” sounds like “Harden My Heart” by Quarterflash. “Body Heat” stands out in that it’s a rock song that sounds like a rock song but not any one in particular.
Predictably, the last track is a ballad, in this case “Warm Gentle Breeze.” Every rose may have its thorn, but such gimmickry is not needed on an otherwise satisfactory rock album.
