Johnnie Burton is a raspy voiced female singer and guitarist, and this is her debut. Placed firmly in the alternative rock genre, she's a fiery presence throughout. "Hole in The Sky" recalls early Veruca Salt, energetic but tuneful with it. "Volcano" is a bouncy, air-guitar friendly little ditty with lusty vocals.
"Guruji" sounds like Pixies fronted by Courtney Love. It's irresistibly catchy and fierce with it. "Ordinary Day" is surpassingly poppy and sounds like it should be a sizeable hit. This debut is unusually assured and Johnnie Burton should be a name to remember for fans of rock.
