A Mess

Danish Rock n’ Riot Grrrl A Mess is a one-badass-woman army armed with electric guitar. She is honest as hell with both witty as well as serious lyrical perspectives, invigorating melodies, playful guitar licks and a hook-filled expression of being a woman of today. She is head on and fucks with predefined notions. Visions Magazine (DE) calls it “feministic power pop driven by raw guitar riffs” . A Mess strikes the chord to songs about #metoo, gender perceptions and sex. The sound relies on guitar driven indie virtues and an early nineties’ vibe. Imagine if The Breeders bred Avril Lavigne and left the upbringing to Pussy Riot.
