By naming themselves after a cocktail and adorning the cover of their EP with some dubious "erotic" artwork, Brandy Alexander aren't exactly marketing themselves as the new breed in intelligent rock. Yet 'Imperfecta', for all its - if you will - imperfections shows rather more depth. On first impressions they appear to be your average young angsty band with 'Marble Shell' treading the well-worn path of quiet verses followed by screamed chorus. On 'One More Hangover Song', however, the low slung guitars and lo-fi production begin to make headway past the teen-fodder rock. Like the vulnerable finale 'Carpe Diem', the approach is heartfelt rather than forced and is all the better for it. The overall result is one of the more considered reflections on drinking too much.
