Rebel Mistress is a hard rock band from Stockholm, Sweden consisting of Marielle Tengström (vox) Johan Jönsson (guitar) Marcus Skantz (bass) and Oskar Hallberg (drums.)
They tend to play straight-forward — loud — rock music inspired by the likes of Mötley Crüe and Guns N’ Roses.
This month they released their new EP “Restless Minds” and we had a listen:
The title track is a fast grinder with sizzling hot electric guitars and juicy vocals.
And, of course, the kind of mocking attitude we worship. Very glam-punk. With hot licks and no bashfulness — this has a chorus that will scald your ears off !
‘Let it Rain‘ has an immensely satisfying pace (Aerosmith) and adorable flaunts of guitar.
Yes, you wil be struttin’ to this one in no time. And did we mention Joan Jett & The Blackhearts? If not, we should have done!
‘Scream‘ gurgles and fizzes like a drain that has been washed with a mixture of oyster-water and soda.
The vocals are seductively low-pitched and spellbinding — they will entice you in… So you better watch out!
This is top melodic rock at its finest. Nothing innovative or cutting edge here… But hey! Why shouldn’t we celebrate some no-strings-attached prime quality heaviness from time to time?
