Parasite kicks off with the title track, a rowdy throwback to a younger, angrierincarnation of the band. Crafted in the wake of the election and during a tumultuousperiod in the band members' private lives, "Parasite" is pure catharsis. "During themaking of our last album, I didn't want to scream anymore, I just wanted to sing andfocus on melody. When we came to this recording, I just wanted to scream andcurse," says guitarist/vocalist Julia Kugel. If the EP is meant as a journey through thevarious stages of the band's career, it certainly storms out of the gate with the samekind of piss-and-vinegar of their eponymous debut. And while "Wipe Out" is anotherrowdy venture, with bassist Meredith Franco taking over the lead vocal duties over asteady barrage of pointed power-chords, it also showcases the rousing choruses thatelevated the trio from underground heroines to an internationally renowned garageact. Despite the adverse times, The Coathangers' mastery of pop cannot be containedforever, as is evident in the EP's single "Captain's Dead", with its sultry verses,triumphant chorus, and a bombastic freak-out of noisy guitar. The journey throughThe Coathangers' musical evolution leads to a revamped version of "Down Down" off2016's Nosebleed Weekend LP and the smoky twang of "Drifter", in whichdrummer/vocalist Stephanie Luke demonstrates her knack for solid Dusty Springfieldstyleballads.
