Screaming Females - "Wishing Well"

New MusicadminComment

New Jersey indie rockers Screaming Females have a new "EP"--it's kind of a single, really--out via Don Giovanni Recs titled "Wishing Well." Rather than delivering their usual deluge of shrill screams and wild guitar licks, the band is toning things down to deliver a pretty sweet tune. You could probably show your grandmamma this one, and then you could ease her into "Boyfriend."

I'm loving some of the lyrics frontwoman Marissa Paternoster is bringing to the track, too. With the line about all of her "change going to hell," this ranks as one of her most clever choruses yet. While I haven't loved much of what the Scremales have been doing lately, this track is bringing them back on my good side.
