Blackheart Saints – Sick in Love
The Blackheart Saints is a Garage/punkrock’n’roll band from Petersburg, Virginia USA. The Blackheart Saints released a demo and a 7” called I-IV-V in the past and they have plans to record a first full-length album in 2010. In 2009 they released this 7” called ‘Sick in Love’.
Their Biography says that their roots dig deep into the musical movement of the last century, which developed into what became known as rock’n’roll. I can agree with that because the influences I hear in their sound are very divers. I hear an interesting mix of the energy, the rawness and the noise of Iggy and the Stooges alike rock with some Sex Pistols and New York Dolls alike punk. If you then add some Screeching Weasel to it you pretty much got it. Like I said an interesting mix. ‘Sick in Love’ is a great 7”. Unfortunately it’s damn too short.
