Last night I received an e-mail recommending a LA-based band called She Wants Revenge. Attached to the e-mail was a MP3 file of a song by the band called Out of Control, so there really was no excuse for not checking them out.

As it turned out I immediately liked the song, which then quickly led me to download another song - Sister - by the band.

Like many other bands these days they have definitely listened more than once to several 80's albums and they have clearly been inspired by the "dark" sound of bands like Depeche Mode, Sisters of Mercy, The Cure etc.

Despite of this the band still has its own "freshness" (the e-mail described them as "playing new wave alt-pop with a totally modern flavor") and it should be really interesting to listen to a full length album by these guys.
