Ballerina Black: Leaves
Cattle Arithmetic, the debut album from Los Angeles based Ballerina Black released globally on January 1st, 2010 and features the excellent lead-off track ‘Leaves’ that we are bringing you today.
Aside from two of the members being constantly mistaken for the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the guitarist for Radiohead, their sound is dramatically reminiscent of post-punk 80’s and the grunge infused 90’s. “The best compliment we’ve ever received, for me, was from a fan after a show. He told me we sounded like Nirvana doing Cure covers. Those bands are two of our biggest influences and have always inspired some form of hope for me, in spite of their dark parts and elements of despair.”
