Zombina and the Skeletons - album review
Zombina and the Skeletons
Death Valley High (Ecto)
They may have released their first offering five years ago but Zombina and the Skeletones are still waiting to make their big splash. Without a doubt, Death Valley High should be it as not only does it contain their most infectious material to date but it also boasts one of the most original sounds around.
This rockabilly pop-meets-surf-punk, doo-wop concept album about a high school murder surges into life, all blistering riffs, devilish keyboards, sweet female vocals and gorgeous harmonies, engaging the listener in a compelling tale of teenage angst, true love and gruesome revenge. Musically exhilarating and oodles of fun, now go ahead and make it massive.
