Wet Dress

Wet Dress define their music as ‘anarcho-feminist queer (trashy) garage punk’ and they are an East coast duo with Sam( a girl) ‘singing and slamming the skins’ and Chris (a guy) ‘chanting and crashing chords’… That’s about all I have been able to find about them on the internet, but they have a bandcamp here with and EP filled with seven songs whose cool and provocative titles such as Slutever, FUCC, or Jerkoff announce their punk colors.

The two kids have a real loud energy, some raw attitude and short songs performed in a true punk tradition with a garage rock lo-fi quality. Their shortest song (less than one minute) ‘Vs Verse’ is probably their best, wild and aggressive, punk and punchy till it crashes in a drum-chaos. ‘Summer Break’ is more surfy and sounds a bit like the Ramones covered by a Dylan-like nasal-morose voice, while ‘(I’m Not Your) Manic Pixie Dream Girl’ goes over some unexpected mood changes, and ‘FUCC’ or ‘Jerkoff’ are just what you would expect with such titles. All this is visceral enough to make you nostalgic about the good old times of early punk, and I guess their last song is going back to the mid-60s as it is a punk cover of The Barbarians’ ‘Are You a Boy Or Are You a Girl’?

Everything in Wet Dress screams DIY, indie rock, small label and Riot Grrrl,… they  have this girlie moniker and a ‘feminist queer’ etiquette attached to their Facebook, so I am allowed to say so. Listen to them below:
