Melbourne based Shotgun Mistress release their highly-anticipated self-titled debut album, an explosive dose of pure indie contemporary hard rock at its most searing and exuberant. After a year of remarkable single releases, chart and radio play gains, Shotgun Mistress continues to solidify its position at the vanguard of Australian rock with this new album. From the relentless charge of the opening track Born And Raised to the restrained haunting cadences of the closing May She Never Walk Alone, this collection of songs utilizes a blistering sonic arsenal to explore heightened emotional and personal terrain.
Shotgun Mistress’s amalgamation of Vesuvian guitar fire, supercharged bass and drums and unleashed vocals is at times cathartic, such as in No Friend Of Mine, as well as intense and rousing such as in the track that started it all, Save Me From Myself. Amid the myriad of grinding power riffs and chant-inducing choruses, alongside the thunderous dynamics and gritty narratives, the band’s full panoramic vehemence blazes. Voracious and uncompromising, Shotgun Mistress’s debut album is a definitive statement from a band beginning their ascent, a multi-layered yet single-minded rock album that both transcends the times while maintaining a wildly coherent response to them.
