The Bengal Lights


You really cant fake attitude and style you either have it, or you're dead in the water. As the Buzzcocks told us, passion is a fashion, and The Bengal Lights are already three steps ahead: out there in the realm of the fashionably fucked-up, and creating their own trip that has little to do with going with the flow See, Maeve and Zoe existed as The Bengal Lights before they even wrote a song together.

You really cant fake attitude and style you either have it, or you're dead in the water. As the Buzzcocks told us, passion is a fashion, and The Bengal Lights are already three steps ahead: out there in the realm of the fashionably fucked-up, and creating their own trip that has little to do with going with the flow See, Maeve and Zoe existed as The Bengal Lights before they even wrote a song together. The two friends had the sort of connection that transcended their shared interest in bad-ass rocknroll, clothes, and guys; so by the time they started playing together, there was no fumbling around for a direction. The girls knew what they were all about, and hit their stride right away: raw, primal, attitude- drenched, fun, non-conformist punk rocknroll.

The guitar/drums line-up? For The Bengal Lights, this isnt a contrived aesthetic device its simply a case of not needing to disturb the symbiotic chemistry of the duo by adding an extraneous player. And it aint nothing to do with art-damaged minimalism either. The Bengal Lights can wrench more than enough melody and rhythm outta these instruments to convey their vibed-up energy, and add their contrasting dual-lead vocals, and the songs reach a whole other level. Like, imagine if the Cramps had two hot teenage punk chicks instead of a suave, undead couple of ghouls; or if the Yeah Yeah Yeahs were comprised of three Karen Os.

Something like that. Their lead-off alternative radio track, the absurdly-hooky Black Jean Surly, has already drilled its way into the consciousness of the underground; and fittingly, the character in the song may well be the kind of hip denizen youd find in that culture. Of course you dont need to be one of those for the tune to get its hooks into you. Expect a six-track EP in the almost immediate future.

In the meantime, get to their shows before the ogling hordes catch on. Cool like cool.. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
