Kickin Valentina - 'Super Atomic - EP'

by Jaide Alicia / 2594 days ago / Comments

Georgia based rockers, Kickin Valentina, pay respect to our beloved 80’s sleaze rock bands with their sophomore release Super Atomic. All the tracks on this six song EP have a uniformed sound which ultimately come together to create one cohesive release. These songs retain a healthy amount of hooks and riffs which in turn keep the listener bobbing their head, tapping their toes, and curious as to what the following song will sound like.  Although “Wrong Way” is more moderately tempoed than the rest of the EP, it is balanced out by more upbeat tracks like, “Fist ‘n Twist” and “Super Atomic Poster Boy”.

The lyrics are fairly carefree, and in the best way possible. That is where you really see the tip of the hat to 80’s sleaze rock. It is a total throwback to the easy-going and untroubled times that was the era of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll. Lead singer Joe Edwards’ vocals emulate that raunchy-whine that sleaze rock, as a genre, has become so accustomed to.

There is no question that Kickin Valentina is a band of talented players and this album leaves listeners wondering; what is this group really capable of? We can hear the attitude and we can hear the flair. I am sure I am not the only one hoping for a full length album after listening to this. Super Atomic captures the attention of those with an ear for rock and roll and leaves them yearning for more.

About Jaide Alicia

Jaide Alicia Journalist

For as long as I can remember music has been my entire life. Due to starting my own website about music, my life has turned into a total dream come true. I've been able to interview some of my life idols and make great friends within the industry- something I thought was a complete long shot. On top of music, I went to a great cosmetology school for one year, and although I never finished the curriculum (because I decided music was a better way to spend my time) I still learned a ton about the industry, which has given me the opportunity to write about hair and beauty on many other platforms. I do the best I can to make my family and myself proud, and the best part of my life is seeing what the future has in store.
