MADAME SO - SINGLE REVIEW

Madame So - If Only You Were Dead 
Madame So - If Only You Were Dead

This isn't the cheeriest title to a single I've ever come across but when you hear the music of Parisian born London dweller Madame So it all sort of clicks. 'If Only You Were Dead' is steeped in 90s grunge with influences like Hole, Belly, Throwing Muses and Veruca Salt coming through loud and clear. The chugging guitar and spite filled choruses are a breath of fresh air in a world where a lot of female artists seem afraid to wear their anger on their sleeves. I'd love to see Madame So on a bill with LWM favourites Dexu Furieuses  to really bring that sneering, snarling, 'whatever' attitude to an audience that is crying out for such songs. It's lo-fi, it's uncomplicated and there are some dubious backing vocals in the chorus but more importantly it's raw, honest and a lot of fun.
