Grab those ear huggers and let the D.C. based Pretty Bitter catapult you into a joyous scorcher of a new song they are calling “Roadkill.” The new indie-rock single is an ecstatic blend of break neck rock a la Charly Bliss and Marnie Stern mixed with the pop sensibilities of Hole or The Cranberries. Drummer Jason Hayes will make your chest sweat with a frenetic rock beat jammed with tongue wagging fills while Chris Hayes bites into that ceaseless rhythm like a pitbull with fraying guitar work that ignites and sizzles as it flies by. The lead songwriters Em Bleker and Miriam Tyler harness that electric impressionist energy and bend it to their wills, creating verses that flip the sonics from contrasting gut punches to a sumptuous neon tangerine that carry their joyous spirit and feminist-bent lyrics. Fans of Julia Jacklin, Sylvan Esso, and Passion Pit should let these indie rockers blast them into the kaleidoscopic sunset that is “Roadkill”
