Maybe you have heard of Bristol, UK trio IDestroy, as they were featured on an episode of The Matinee back in January. If not, IDestroy is a name you won’t forget because their debut EP, Vanity Loves Me, is face-melting, garage rocker. From the feverish pace to the driving guitar hooks to the gritty but infectious melodies, this album will have you thinking of some of the great rock bands of past and present.

On “IDestroy”, the Bristol, UK trio channel the ferocious energy of Sleater-Kinney with frontwoman Bec Jevons at times even echoing of Corin Tucker. And like the riot grrl legends, IDestroy hold nothing back on this track about perseverance. The lead and title track is another smashing number and the album’s most anthemic. “Vanity Loves Me” mirrors closely to the blistering rock ‘n roll often associated with Joan Jett.

If there was one big middle finger on the track, it is “Talking Shit”. On the track, IDestroy essentially call out everything and tell them to go “F” themselves. It’s a song that all of us would love to write about but didn’t have the courage to. Now we have one to represent us. Meanwhile, “State of the Art” is the wild and catchy finale. Warm up your arms because you’ll be air guitaring to this scintillating number. It’s rip-roaring fun and just one awesome closer.

It’s only four songs, but IDestroy have shown something really special on Vanity Loves Me, something seen in some of the great rock bands of the last 30 years. If four tracks can make us pump our fists, wail on our invisible guitars, and think about artists like Joan Jett and Sleater-Kinney, what would they be like live? We can imagine it would be even better than what’s on the album, which is pretty great.

IDestroy are Bec Jevons (vocals/guitar), Becky Baldwin (bass/backing vocals), and Jenn Haneef (drums). Vanity Loves Me, is out now. Get it at their site and iTunes.
