Wild Flag: Wild Flag. Album review

Fearless female rock from American newcomers

This self-titled debut album from Wild Flag, the music for which was all recorded live, finds its beauty in sounding just like a set from the American club stages this quartet is accustomed to playing.

Brimming with gutsy female punk-rock, Wild Flag could easily be the younger sister of the Foo Fighters’ One By One. The highlight track, Glass Tambourine is packed with icy drumming and blaring guitar solos, contrasted with womanly harmonies.

This album, reminiscent of Blood Red Shoes and Cage The Elephant, may first seem like a quirky pop record, but don’t be fooled.
