One More Won't Kill Us
Having already released 3 singles from the album, the Glasgow-based four-piece The Hedrons have finally got round to releasing their debut full-length One More Won't Kill Us.
The only element of originality here is the fact that there are not many all-female bands in the media spotlight doing the whole 'rock n' roll' thing. This record feels like a statement, a little bit like the bubblegum "girl power" movement. Sorry to break it to you ladies, but the Spice Girls beat you to it (more than a decade ago).
What I can say about this album is you will have heard the riffs a thousand times before, the lyrics lack depth and it's all pretty one-dimensional. Other than the terrible output of Juilette & The Licks, I really can't find any rock-based comparisons. If anything, The Hedrons sound more like what I imagine Girls Aloud would sound like if they picked up a few guitars. Having said all that, I don't suppose there is nothing wrong with a little harmless fun from time to time (I've just remembered these girls are from Glasgow), though if like me, you expect a little more from your music, it's probably best to look elsewhere.
