SAINT AGNES – SINGLE REVIEW

Saint Agnes – Merry Mother of God Go Round (Death or Glory Gang Records) 
Saint Agnes - Merry Mother of God Go Round


Release Date: 8th December 2016

London leather clad rockers Saint Agnes have been building up a steady stream of excellent rock’n’roll singles and ‘Merry Mother of God Go Round’ is the latest which is just as fine as all the others. A squall of dirty (nay, filthy) guitars come rolling in like Royal Blood being egged on by Jon Spencer and sewn together with a distorted harmonica that sounds like sex would sound if it had a voice. The twin, male vs female vocal is both aggressive and laced with sexual energy but then there is the mellower mid-section that lulls you back in to the bedroom before your body is slammed up against the wall in a way that is both exciting and terrifying. The ending to this song is as brutal and heavy as anything I’ve heard this year but damn it’s good. So very good.


Live Dates:


8th December – Oslo, Hackney w/ Electric Child House
