When you hear Crooked Bangs’ brand of gothic punk, there aren’t many musical comparisons. The Austin trio sounds more like a swarm of bees on “Rabbit Hole” than anything else. The guitars are locked in a buzzing drone while the drums stop and start on a dime, and singer Leda Ginestra practically hovers overhead with her ghostly voice. It totally makes sense that a few of the band members are graphic designers. This is visual music, highly-stylized but still rock-and-roll to its full-throttle core.
