Black Dresses is the collaborative effort of the artists known as Dei Genetrix (formerly Girls Rituals) and Rook, and we named their debut album Waste Isolation one of the best albums of 2018 so far. Not long after that, Black Dresses put out the Hell Is Real EP. The duo’s noisy dark-pop is as ferocious as it is fun, even when they’re singing about traumatic experiences. Catharsis is this band’s driving force; if you don’t have anything to scream about, they’ll give you something to scream about.


This is like lesbian Death Grips…. On second thought, these women make Death Grips look like Bryan Adams. Synths that can abrade away cities and lyrics that will send violent shivers down everyone’s spines. It’s painfully honest, horrifically brutal, and definitely one of the best things I heard this year!
