She Wants Revenge – She Wants Revenge (2006)
With the popularity of the eighties new wave sound returning as evidenced in such groups as The Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party, Action Action, The Bravery, and The Killers, this latest group called She Wants Revenge is geared towards a more electro synth sound not unlike Joy Division and Bauhaus. The lead singer sounds like a cross between The Human League’s Phil Oakey and veteran rocker David Bowie which isn’t a bad thing. The music is dark, synthesized with guitars and an electronic drum kit. Standouts include “I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love”, “These Things”, “Broken Promises For Broken Hearts”, “Red Flags And Long Nights” and “Tear You Apart”. An excellent debut!
