Summers On Torture Beach

by Perils of Glamour

the New "Core-Rock" music project fusing the Psychedelia-inspired groove of the late 60's, the searing riffs of the 70's, the excess of the 80's, while plunging headfirst into uncharted territory that is the future of rock.

Album Notes
Hailing from New Orleans, "Perils of Glamour" evokes a style and sound that immediately conjures up the ghost of the 80s - albeit with stronger guitars and a more modern, bombastic delivery. Fronted by female vocalist Andrée Ice, this 6-track exploratory EP/CD pays homage to Terri Nunn and Shirley Manson, as well as the obscure UK band, "The Photos."

The first track, "Lightning," bristles with strong guitars and an infectious chorus melody. Track 2, the synth-pop ode to unrequited love - "Kiss and Tell," is a gleeful journey replete with sweet, subtle vocal harmonies and killer 'call and answer' guitar solos. Completing the brief disc are tracks such as "Two Worlds Collide" (an underground Bourbon Street dance club smash two summers ago) that has all the ingredients to be a Euro-charged transcontinental hit with its pulsating BPM groove and provocative vocals. An exploration into The Smiths' classic, "How Soon Is Now?" makes a somewhat expected appearance. The CD closes with a dark, goth-like track, "Drown." With an hypnotic, delayed synth line dominating the intro (called "Divination") "Drown" pulls us under with discordant, droning guitars and emotionally-charged lyrics, "I was once in love with the world, and all she held in her rainy arms." After the haunting desperation of the first two minutes, we are treated to a brighter sounding chorus that is its paradigm shift - "We all reach for higher ground; don't let me drown."

Perils of Glamour boasts tight production, well-crafted songs, interesting guitar tones and polished vocals, combining pompousness with a dark side. With brevity and bombast, the "Perils" are indeed, much like the 80s.
