Mabel Love – Hardened Face


“Hardened Face” is the debut single. The band is British no doubt (Sheffield UK) but sound much more American than their place of birth would lead you to believe (or maybe not, lol, they do bear a bit of a resemblance to fellow Sheffieldians? Sheffieldites? Arctic Monkeys (and yes, there is a history between the two bands)). That aside, Pixies, Replacements, maybe Husker Du, that seems to be Mabel Love’s main font of inspiration. “Hardened Face” is loud guitars, punchy measured rhythm, and high-powered vox. You know what it is. Click click click below.
