Music Review: The Downer Party "Cities" EP

San Francisco band the Downer Party offers up a delicious serving of female-fronted indie rock in their forthcoming EP, "Cities". The band's singer, Sierra Frost (Who mentions that that IS her real name - and she hates it..) describes their sound as "mellow", but though not loud, they have a driving energy that refutes that description. Catchy riffs, fuzzy guitars, just a bit of synth, fun backup vocals, and clever, literate lyrics, sung with just a hint of country twang. The band name is misleading; The Downer Party definitely bring the fun. "Cities" will be released April 1st.
