Russian punk outfit Angelic Milk writes with the grit, spit, and danger of the grimy garage rock heroes that came before them. Helmed by songwriter Sarah Persephona, the project had its first roots as a solo project when she was just 15 years old. Persephona says the moniker "actually means nothing." That devil may care attitude was ingrained in the project from the beginning and it's been one of the group's best assets as they over time evolved into a full band. After releasing the Teenage Movie Soundtrack in 2016, the group finally released their full-length debut earlier this month – DIVINE BIKER LOVE – on PNKSLM.
Opener (and our song of the day) "Helluva Dr." is the ideal opening salvo asking "how hard can we push this sound?" The answer is a lot. A blitz of mangled riffs scatters over frenzied drums and bass while Persephona fully embraces punk rock sneer. It sets the stage for the wave of excess and cantankerous debauchery that follows on the album. Get lost in the blaring anthem and embrace the riotous ethos for yourself above.
