4.0 out of 5 stars ...goth rock alert..., 1 May 2010
This review is from: Twinkle Twinkle Little Scar (Audio CD)
Go on, have a guess. A band called RazorBladeKisses. An album called "Twinkle Twinkle Little Scar". What do you think it sounds like? Are you guessing goth? I'm guessing goth. Let's push play and see what happens. Ooh! It's a goth album.

And a pretty good one at that, considering it's a self released debut album. They have a few twists and turns that take you by surprise with off centre melodies that are probably connected of this is to the writers / singers Layla and Azadeh's Iranian heritage. Which is a long way from Southampton, the bands home base.

They shoot their load early, as the opening track, 'Alice', is a dark and brooding monster of a track that the rest of the album has trouble keeping up with. However, the more mainstream goth of 'Pretty Dead Doll' and the White Zombie like 'Teddy' also get you hitting the replay button a bit sharpish. The idiosyncratic vocal style of Layla and Azadeh may not be to everyone's taste, but for goodness (badness?) sake! If you can't be a bit weird on a goth album, where can you be weird.

A really good debut, this has enough individuality and style to stand out from the goth crowd.
