Bat Fangs – s/t debut (album review)

by Woody on February 9, 2018

Betsy Wright is half of Bat Fangs, along with drummer Laura King. I’d become familiar with Wright from the Ex Hex album, an album that is amazing (they kick ass live as well). Needless to say I was excited when I heard she was going to be fronting a new band.

And it doesn’t disappoint. Wright is a god damn force of nature on stage and that energy comes across throughout the album. They deliver a 25 minute blend of riot grrrl and hair metal. Tunes like Bad Astrology and Wolfbite would slide in well on an episode of Hairbanger’s Ball. Wright’s vocals keep the tunes from coming off as anything but genuine.

Bat Fangs aren’t recreating the wheel. But they are are churning out tunes wiht kick-ass riffs and that will surely translate into an entertaining set. They’ll be at SXSW and I’ll be front and center for one of them; Lone Star in hand.
