Last Monday, Ladyfang sank their teeth into Mohawk with a fantastically frenzied set showcasing their latest album, For Morgan. Considered a modern-day riot grrrl band, the edgy, Austin four-piece blends devilish indie-pop with post-punk, alternative rock creating a uniquely eclectic pop-rock concoction. Lead singer Cara Juan’s howling vocals display a mixture of Jean Smith’s firey passion and Florence Welch’s controlled eccentricity and could easily fit within the power rock genres of any decade from the turbulent sixties to the two-thousand teens. The band’s live performance possesses all the energetic playfulness and chaotic dance-inducing melodies you could ever hope for.
Catch Ladyfang live August 18 at Sidewinder.
