Frau - Mira
One of the songs that featured in my end of 2014 "best of" list was Punk Is My Boyfriend by London band Frau, the song also featured on this blog last summer (http://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/frau-punk-is-my-boyfriend.html). Happily they're back with a new single that is equally as good.
The band comprise of Ashleigh (vocals), Colette (guitar), Nuria (bass) and Paula (drums) and they're building up a reputation as one of punk's most exciting and uncompromising new bands. Their songs are short, frantic blasts of discordant noise whilst live, they're more likely to stare an audience into submission than attempt to engage them in conversation but it all adds to the frisson.
Currently they're kicking up a storm in the US on a tour which will also see them play in Mexico, if you're in those parts you should check them out. You can also check out the new single here : https://fraupunk.bandcamp.com/album/mira. This is the title track, Mira.......
