Record Review – Voladoras
True Loves Stories
They have a tune called 'Paul Weller', songs co-written with Swede garage royalty Jens Linsdberg, consist of four burlesque girls and classify themselves as "High Heeled Garage Punk To Drive You Nuts". Think The Pandoras, The Brood, Thee Headcoatees, The Sires and so on... nope, Voladoras don't rewrite the rule book. Their melodies rarely click and it's as one dimensional as the image of a beehived girl dressed in a black leather catsuit. But then, if that is what you want. That is what you get.
Sounding more like The Runaways, Cramps and ’80s and ’90s fuzz garage than the more purist fare, True Loves Stories is a fun, schlocky ride of teen abandon, cheap liquor and bad girls that blends The New York Dolls' take on girl groups with a dash of ’70s punk attitude. And yes, they do look every inch the part.
