The SoviettesSaturday, November 8th, 2014
Of course they didn’t leave Fat Wreck Chords for Crustacean! Are you nuts? But we do get to put out their debut full length on thick black vinyl. In a mere five years of existence this dynamic Minneapolis quartet has rocketed to success via touring and lots of it, a fine catalog of singles and records, and by wowing the crowds night after night with finely executed speedy, pop songs backed up by four part harmonies. But don?t believe us, listen to this:
“…accent is definitely on “party.” That aim is helped enormously by the fact that each of the four Soviettes pitch in on vocals with enough verve and passion to front a band by themselves. The band brings to mind a cheerleading squad trained by the Ramones.” -The Onion
The Soviettes have not changed the world. Not yet. Their amazingly catchy mixture of shout-along political anthems and honest, intimate tunes about struggling relationships are sure to offer hope, however.
