Why do we like this?
Back in 2010, these 60s-throwback Los Angelites debuted Release Me; a tough-chick album full of retro-pop gems featuring sassy vocals and lyrical mayhem. Oh, and it was produced by Mark Ronson. One particular track from this album titled "Wishing He Was Dead" entices us from the beginning with sweet-sounding harmonies and retro organ licks. However, once the song actually juices up, the sugary spirit immediately alters to a death wish with biting kiss-off lyrics.

This cutesy schoolgirl-tough attitude is one that presides amongst a lot of girl bands out there right now. The juxtaposition of their retro style combined with current swaggering beats and severe lyrics is something that isn't overly forced but complimentary. Behind all of the fuzzy sweet and sour melodies her message is clear "“ "When I am through with him, he will be wishing he was dead."
