The all-female powerhouse on Exploding In Sound Records, Human People, are bringing the angsty and punk flavor of the 90’s back. The quartet who are Hayley Livingston (guitar/vocals), Marisa Gershenshorn (guitar/vocals), Vicki Guillem (drums), and Abby Austin (bass) have released a handful of tracks along some EP’s, but now are gearing up to release their debut LP titled Butterflies Drink Turtle Tears.
The attitude and spunk that Human People sport in their music is one of the many attributes that this group brings through with their punk sound. Lead singer, Marisa Gershenshorn’s vocals sound alike to the vocal deliveries of legends such as Courtney Love and Kim Gordon. Carrying a scratchy and aggressive tone throughout their single “Jenny” off of their new record, Butterflies Drink Turtle Tears. Hayley and Marisa’s writing on this track battle between an opening of dueling guitars and a catchy riff that sticks to your ears like peanut butter to the roof of your mouth.
The Brooklyn-based group’s witty lyricism in a narrative form are signature to their fun and outgoing persona on stage. After seeing them open for their label-mates Big-Ups back in May, it can be said that the girls of Human People are not ones to mess with. Their album Butterflies Drink Turtle Tears comes out on September 21st, 2018.
