The Most Dangerous Woman in Pop Music Reviews Sex


Nicole Mendes mans the devil's own typewriter at The Other Side Reviews and last week she turned her laser cannons onto our latest EP Sex.

It's a nice piece. One reason why we would never dare cross Nicole is that she sees the context. This is a woman who reads the other reviews. She synthesises. She blends. She concentrates and her brew is potent.

Short, sweet and pounding, the three tracks off Sex touch on topics from casual sex to toxic relationships in their brash style. A full-on acceleration from the opening ‘Do Me Too’ to the smooth sensuality of ‘Indoor Boyfriend’, 9 o’clock Nasty comments on the said and unsaid aspects of physicality. The dynamic guitar-driven ‘Do Me Too’ introduces us to their swagger from the beginning; however, ‘What Have You Done For Me Lately’ digs at jealousy, anger and disrespect with crashing drums. Finally petering out in a flowing yet mildly psychotic ballad, 9 o’clock Nasty highlights their innovativeness as artists.

We love to see ourselves in the same sentence as Sweet and Pounding. Our only comment would be that there is nothing 'mild' about the psychosis of Indoor Boyfriend. Full on, f-u-l-l   o-n
