Fast Car

by The Getarounds

The Get Arounds have just released their new full-length album, I Wanna Live. Melodic choruses call to mind classics like Nikki and the Corvettes or The Dead Boys. Their female-fronted, angst fills the songs with 90’s style punk-grit that are reminiscent of L7, Bikini Kill or Babes in Toyland.
