With reminiscences of My Chemical Romance’s theatrically explosive antagonism, it almost beggars belief that Elizabeth II didn’t hit the same heights with her seminal single, All My Failures. Searing riffs? Check. Hooky choruses? Check. Avant-Garde ingenuity spliced with instantly infectious personality? Check.
The multi-award-winning artist allowed the single to ensue with a wobbly lo-fi prelude before bursting into a blister of frenetic rock with Jeckyl and Hyde vibes through the dizzying bounce from pop vocal lines to hell hath no mercy screams.
The Washington DC-born, Nashville-based artist’s boisterous infusion of punk, pop, and rock which has never tasted another artist’s flavour has seen her performing at the city’s most infamous venues, opening for William DuVall and playing for Slash since she emerged on the scene in 2017. It’s only a matter of time before she’s a rock legend in her own right.
All My Failures is available to stream on Spotify.
