Anti-Hero: Wake Me Up
Every decade seems to have its own interpretation of what is considered cool in female fronted rock ‘n roll! The 60’s gave us the blue-eyed soul of Janis Joplin. The 70’s saw the Zeppelin-tinged Wilson sisters in Heart rise to fame. The 80’s gave us the Bad Reputation of Joan Jett; and the grungy (and drunken) antics of Courtney Love and Hole made the 90’s her decade to reign as rock ‘n roll queen. Enter the new millennium, and enter Rose Perry and Nic Vanhaverbeke of Anti-Hero!
Incorporating the best parts of all the aforementioned artists, Anti-Hero bring back everything we love about rock ‘n roll – The attitude, the sincerity, the hooks and the in-your-face desire to be heard make this a band that is impossible to ignore. Rose’s background in opera and classical music help to give their music and lyrics a maturity that isn’t always represented in rock. Another thing that makes their sound unique is the contrast between Rose’s flawless professionally trained singing voice, and Nic’s ‘scream at the top of your lungs’ vocal harmonies. That, along with Jesse Tomes’ crunchy guitar stylings, make Anti-Hero the ultimate sound for true rock lovers today.
