“…Their much anticipated, self-titled debut was recorded this year by Jody Richardson and Grant King of Pathological Lovers, and it sounds absolutely stunning. Beautifully produced and mixed, the record fuses the grungy sound of the early to mid-nineties St. John’s scene with more modern pop-punk sensibilities, a combination I absolutely love…..
Another great element of The Black Bags sound is the trade off of vocal duties between Liz and Marcel. Although the two alternate as lead singers, its when they come together on tracks such as “Never Get Enough” and “Everything is Leaking” that they really shine. From the crisp drums and stuttering bass line of opener “Kelowna Rocks”, The Black Bags come out swinging and plow through track after track of pure rock goodness.”
