Christi: Cry 7"
Debut single from this Richmond band and it's a real power pop scorcher. Generally I prefer my power pop with healthy dose of punk in it (i.e. stuff like Protex, the Soft Boys, etc.), but this is just so dead-on and so full of hooks that I'm totally hooked on it even though it's in more of a Nerves / Paul Collins / Pretenders vein. The b-side is perhaps even better than the a-side, too, with the singer putting a little bit more rasp in her voice. If you're a fan of Rickenbacker rock this one should DEFINITELY be on your radar.Tags: 10s female-fronted power-pop punk richmond
