This is ugly pop in full glory. Stomping, menacing and downright bratty, the Oklahoma step-sister duo ‘Skating Polly’ bring gnarly riffs and brash drums.

Jaggedly cut in half with split personality, Peyton Brighouse and Kelli Mayo send sweet harmonies turbulent into raucous out-roar of primitive punk. Sticking their middle fingers up to all those people that were never worthy of their attention or affection, an angsty chorus bites with electric guitar.

Having started making living room music together six years ago, and now aged only fifteen and twenty, the girls are whirlwinds of noise. Sultry, mature moments are stormed by feisty display of unleashing prepubescent caged energy. Sometimes trashy, sometimes thoughtful, lyricism unashamedly makes its demands in dummy-out-the-pram tantrum. Sit up and listen.

Channelling their inner rock‘n’roll to extreme, last year Kelli did a ‘Dave Grohl’ after tearing her knee ligament on stage. Though that seems to just be the beginning, with new album ‘The Big Fit’ dropping April 8 via Chap Stereo, it won’t be long before you’re thrown into a beer splattered mosh pit. Sisters always have each other’s backs.
