Riotous teenagers Joanna Gruesome are a five-piece noisepop/C86-ish/punk/riot grrrl/whatever band from Cardiff that sound like You Made Me Realise? era My Bloody Valentine being channeled by sloppy punk kids. They like quiet and sweet melodies, hardcore punk drumbeats and brutal feedback. Equal parts Huggy Bear and classic Dinosaur Jr, in the space of five minutes their boy-girl high velocity terror-pop can veer from jangle to riot, from sweaters to torn tights, from feedback to swoon.
Check out their previous 7"s on Art is Hard Records and HHBTM Records.
"Joanna Gruesome are a brilliant band from Cardiff who love their fuzzy melodies and songs dripped in scuzzy reverb." Huw Stephens, Radio One
