Here are a couple of songs to blow your hair back from Miss Destiny. Consisting of members of Southern Comfort and GOOD GOD, this four-piece have caught my ears in a big way. The group, consisting of Harriet Hudson, Annie Llewellyn, Harriet Stewart and Brett Bevege are about to put forth a debut 7” on Hozac Records.
Described on the Hozac website as horror/glam rock, Miss Destiny have crafted two of the best authentically dirty rock songs in recent memory. The two tunes, ‘House of Wax’ and ‘The One’ will both feature on the 7” but you can listen to both of the songs online already.
Persistent and ruthless are two words that spring to mind when thinking about Miss Destiny. This is ‘take no prisoners’ rock and roll – cut-throat and edgy. Neither song strays too far from a traditional rock-song formula, but it is what they do with all the usual bits and pieces that make both songs so formidable.
The vocals have a husky monotony that conveys a temperamental boredom – like doing this shit is easy (it’s sure as shit easy to listen to). The instruments hit hard, a compact unit, dense and forceful. Their sound has dive bar rambunctiousness mixed with Los Angeles rock club chic; glamorous, but with dirt under the finger nails – brawlers in leopard print. Listen on repeat.
