Sticky Stranglets is an alternative rock band from
City. The band’s
debut record, Scissor Hissy, is an
ode to doing things yourself; the band recorded, produced, and released the album
completely on their own. Sonicly, Sticky
Stranglets are a band that sounds like they grew up on and love them some ‘90s alternative
rock. Depending on the song, Scissor Hissy goes from a fuzzy Smashing
Pumpkins vibe to a funky Faith No More vibe to a bouncy Dave Matthews Band
vibe. There are also darker hints of
things like Type O Negative (see “Inertia”) and a smidgen of Alice In Chains
meets Morrissey (on “There Is”). What
Sticky Stranglets does well is mixes these divergent influences to create a
sound and vibe that is all their own. I’m
definitely interested to see what this band does next.
