I had the chance to see Boston’s Boom Said Thunder this past Friday night during Deep Heaven Now 6 at PA’s Lounge in Somerville and was totally blown away! The Boom! EP starts out with the song “Modern Girls”, which has distorted, fuzzed out bass, frenetic drums, and vocals from singer Abby Bickel, who reminds me a bit of Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s. This pace is kept up throughout the four songs on this EP.
Although the songs on this EP are pretty good, the band sounded much more intense live, so I would highly recommend checking them out if they play near you.
