EDITORS’ NOTES

This garage-rock power trio answers their own question with an emphatic “Yes!” on their sharp and energetic third release. Lead singer and guitarist Coco Hames is a potent blend of sass and venom. She plays the coy temptress one moment and the jilted vixen the next as the airtight rhythm section hammers the beat home behind her. Brief, punchy, fuzzed-out rockers like “Red In Tooth and Claw,” “I Can’t Be True,” “Walk Out That Door,” and “No Home” are the foundation of the album and the band’s sound, but they know how to ease off the throttle, too. The loping, nearly country strummer “Love Lies Bleeding” is as catchy as anything here, while the piano-with-cello ballad “Keep Me In Flowers” closes the album on a surprisingly vulnerable and touching note. In the end, this variety, along with the crispness of the songwriting, makes Do You Want Power their most impressive release yet.
