Oh good God damn. HITLIST’s latest single Adrenaline may be the best female-fronted Grunge sound to come out this side of the 1995. The track has that same essence of bitter-sweet raw attitude wrapped in platitudes of pain, essentially, the same sound that fuelled the first wave of the Riot Grrrl scene. Yet, HITLIST found a conceptually pioneering way to express their angst with an intricate blend of Pop, Rock, and Punk. The instrumental Grungey undertones of the Alt Pop Rock hit matched HITLIST vocalist’s alchemic energy with a procession of sludgy yet sonorous cataclysmic melodies.
Between the angular guitars, the crisp, thrashing drum rolls and the steady rolling bassline you’re in for a visceral treat from the up and coming artist’s latest single.
Any fans of L7, Juliette and the Licks and the Pretenders will be in heaven with this nostalgically inspired, fresh offering of aural empowerment.
