Kristeen Young
Kristeen Young
"Young is a mistress of melodrama, unleashing intense vocals that somehow manage to simultaneously seduce and terrify." -Time Out Chicago

"Her time in the rock trenches translates into a commanding, hypnotic stage presence that can turn a grand theater into a small club, and turn a small club into a rock cathedral." -Time Out Chicago

"The music they make is a kaleidoscope of swirling melodies, crashing drums and slow building tension that explodes in a swirling landscape of sound packed with energy and theatricality." -Daily Times

"Imagine a more modern Siouxie and the Banshees, or Missing Person's Dale Bozio if she sang better, and you've only scratched the surface of their eccentric, fun but thought provoking music." -Palm Beach Post

"Young's wailing soprano is a gift, one that she wields with a powerful hand." -Myrtle Beach Online

"Sounding like nothing before, the record is a barrage of melody. Young wails on the keyboard like a guitar while her sole band mate, drummer 'Baby' Jeff White invokes loud yet precise thrashing, like two trains colliding in secret" -NY Press

"Young attacks a piano like a like a punk rocker assaulting a guitar. Lyrically dense and sonically intense…" -Dallas Voice

"....In all the dissonance, brutally revealing lyrics and surreal vocals, Young has her finger on the trigger in full control." -the Baltimore Sun

"....she gives one hell of a performance." the Badger Herald

"She sings about the way we live when we are prevented from living the way we'd like to. The sound is as good as you'll ever hear in modern music. We scan the British pop charts in the hopeless quest for something different. Kristeen Young frees us from this." -Morrissey

.....the duo is a fiery, swirling funhouse born from the depths of the wild, wild west and sinister carnival sideshows." -CMJ

"....violent piano pounding, solid rock voice and catchy tunes." -PhillyBurbs.com
