The Cheek Of Her’s album ‘Adult Angst Anonymous’ is an amazing collection of tunes showcasing some fantastic female fronted music.
‘Guitar Muse’ has powerful raw vocals and a strong message - that woman are awesome musicians too.
‘Axis Of Love’ has a bit more of a pop vibe with loads of smooth backing vocals and a huge sound with a slight electronic vibe.
‘Write Me A Letter’ (which has already been featured on Radio 2!) is a real gem on this album, piano, guitar, poppy vocals, what more could you want – just lush!
‘Stuck Stuck’ has some amazing punchy drums with an anthemic chorus! Fantastic to sing along to and perfect for live shows.
Overall there is a punk-pop-rock theme which is mainly piano, guitar and drums driven, whilst there is occasional use of more electronic sounds, in the most part this is a very raw back to basics album showcasing the talented voice and lyrics of Helen Dooley.
Whilst Helen could be compared to pop stars such as Lily Allen, her sound and message is much stronger and has a real personality behind it. True musicians like Helen really deserve more attention in this industry. With her album ‘Adult Angst Anonymous’ (AAA) having recently been released, I recommend you listen to this amazing artist right now.
