Spider Rockets may be one of the loudest, most energetic bands around the moment. With vocalists Helena Cos’ unmistakable growl at the forefront, alongside guitarist Johnny Nap’s hook-laden riffs, the quartet is as much about the infectious sounds of AC/DC and Judas Priest as it is the most memorable, gut-punching moments of acts such as L7.
“Sick” is one of several tracks bears the grit and grim of the New York/New Jersey clubs the quartet cut its teeth in. It’s the sound of a band that knows that there’s a deep connection between beats per minute and beers sold. These quick and memorable bursts of musical power give the listener a reason to return. And, in the case of sick, Cos’ delivery of a delicious kiss-off sells the whole thing.
