Fire in My Head
Who is RachelAPP?: RachelAPP plays a mix of off-kilter beats, dirty guitars and quirky vocals - some have quite aptly described it as 'minimalist post-punk'. Utilising her very unusual voice, she crafts tales about loss, anger and social attitudes. Debut album - Fire in my head Recorded in two months in the summer of 2005, this mixes up her influences with the voices in her head. Some guitars hint towards The Distillers, some keyboard sounds are reminiscent of Le Tigre, and some beats are simply completely out there. Lyrics tackle various subject matters, with a strong sense of irony. Life is serious enough as it is, there's no point in taking it too seriously! What others said about her music Everett True (Plan B Magazine, April/May 2005 issue) 'You ever have that dream where Polly Harvey is sitting sullenly in the corner of a party, unknown to anyone? That one in Camden where Melt-Banana compete for stereo space with Layra Nyro, and three drunken members of Silverfish wrestle a Melody Maker journalist? Oh wait. That happened. RachelAPP is far better than even she suspects - political vitriol coached with dirty guitars and Olympia vocals. 'Burstin' EP' (Cats Rock The Boat) will haunt me in years to come. Don't think it won't.' 'DIY queen RachelAPP rocks the house with raw wit and six strings. Fans of Pacific Northwest labels like K and Kill Rock Stars will find a kindred spirit in these bare-bones post-punk indie nuggets. The world can keep Beyonce, we're sticking with RachelAPP.'
