Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Destroy She Said’s music is a potent blend of vicious guitar riffs mixed with tales of fast living. It’s the soundtrack to Melbourne’s underbelly; stripped back, hard edged, no bullshit rock n roll.
Their second EP, Music For Muscle Cars, was recorded at Hothouse Audio in St Kilda and mastered by Jack the Bear at Deluxe. It contains four of the toughest and most honest rock songs you are likely to hear all year.
All DSS music is available on iTunes and Bandcamp.
“The sophomore E.P from Melbourne’s Destroy She Said is an absolute cracker. Music for Muscle Cars definitely smacks of very masculine, testosterone soaked pub rock greatness from the opening riff of first track “Drivin’ Machine”. The vocals from Simon McCullough have clearly been influenced by the likes of Bon Scott and Angry Anderson, but definitely not in any copycat way. The thunderous riffs and leads provided by Youngy and Dave Walker will have you banging your head vigorously, and the rhythm section of Scampers on Bass and Greg Aldridge on drums is extremely tight. Lyrically the band keeps things very simple. The aforementioned “Drivin’ Machine” on first listen, appears to be about muscle cars, but if you listen to the lyrics I’m sure you will hear the real story. Second track “Fanta Pants” is about the love of red heads, “Squirter” probably needs no explanation and the first single “Game Over” is an arse kicking anthem. ”
