EP REVIEW: LEGS ELECTRIC – TWO SIDES
Independent

7 /10

The riff for Dark Paradise opens this second EP for Perth rockers Legs Electric, rolling in like a tidal wave to spell out their mission statement: to rock, which they do with retro style and modern power.

Drummer Kylie Soanes (ex-Sure Fire Midnights) is the unsung star here: a pocket rocket powerhouse, she is relentlessly on the money and lays down the framework for the rest of the band to build on.

Vocalist Ama Quinsee is a raging bull on the mic – her voice is clear and boasting an impressive range, and she can belt out a rocker or a slow blues with guts and glory. If she’s let down anywhere it’s with some repetitive lyrics.

Relatively new(ish) guitarist and bass player Elana Haynes and Erin Gooden play their hearts out as well, their riffs and lines serpentine, powerful and raucous as each song demands, but the songs need a bit more melody if they want to stick in the listener’s heads.
