The Regrettes are Lydia Night’s latest project with friends Genessa Gariano (guitar), Sage Chavis (bass) and drummer Maxx Morando. The Regrettes have been tearing up the LA club scene playing with Kate Nash, Peaches, Bleached, Deap Vally, PINS, La Luz and Summer Twins leaving L.A.’s jaded rock critics to write such things as “Everybody was Floored by The Regrettes—the new poster children for local teen garage rock.” and “The Regrettes rocked with a ferocity and penchant for hooks that schools most indie rockers twice their age. They will surely run an empire in ten years tops.”

British rock duo Royal Blood unveiled a striking video for “Lights Out,” which is the lead single off their forthcoming album, “How Did We Get So Dark?”, due out June 16th via Warner Bros. Records.

The clip finds bassist/singer Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher performing the song in an empty room that slowly fills with water. As the pair hit the first chorus of “Lights Out,” a horde of bodies burst out of invisible pools on the floor, ceiling and walls. During a raucous instrumental section, the room is cast in a deep red light and Thatcher and Kerr continue to play in the waist high water as dancers move around them.

How Did We Get So Dark? follows Royal Blood’s 2014 self-titled debut, which debuted in the Top Five and made fans like Jimmy Page and the Foo Fighters, who asked the band as opener  for their 2015 world tours.

Royal Blood wrote the instrumentals for How Did We Get So Dark? during sessions in Brighton, England, Los Angeles and Nashville. The band began cutting the album in Brussels last November with producer Joylon Thomas and finished it London with co-producer Tom Dalgety.

Royal Blood have several U.S. festival dates scheduled for this summer, including stops at Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands.

The Regrettes‘ debut album, Feel Your Feelings Fool!, is in no danger of the bad vibes associated with its Friday the 13th release, and if this is the first you’re hearing of the Los Angeles band, just know that it won’t be the last. Frontwoman Lydia Night offers an unfiltered manifesto over the course of 15 unforgettable tracks (plus a secret song ). Night and Genessa Gariano (guitar), Sage Chavis (bass) and Maxx Morando (drums) manage to draw from genres like garage rock, ‘60s pop and punk rock, while delivering a deliciously cohesive and catchy debut. Oh yeah, and they’re still in their teens.

But if you think their age is relevant, Night will quickly disavow you of that notion in the garage rock-tinged, “Seashore.” Backed by Nicole’s slinky bass line, Night addresses sexism, ageism and condescending assholes everywhere: “You’re talking to me like a child/ Hey I got news/  I’m not a little girl, and no I won’t give you a little twirl.” And with a chorus like, “I’m like nobody else, so you can just go fuck yourself,” you’re kidding yourself if you think you won’t be singing along to this anthem on the way home from your next shitty Monday at work.

In the sarcastic, fast-paced punky tune, “LadylikeWHATTA Bitch,” Night mocks the kind of judgmental peers most women are familiar with. Though its chorus is just Night, Gariano and Chavis singing “wa-oooo wa-wa-wa-oooo,” it will be stuck in your head, all freaking day. Fueled by power chords and Morando’s frenetic drumbeat, Night jeers at her haters in first person, “Lydia got asked out by this cute boy at my school gym/ But apparently she said no ’cause she was just not into him/ But clearly that’s not true and she is just a lesbian.”

The Regrettes, Feel Your Feelings Fool!

The Regrettes fit love sickness in alongside calling out the patriarchy with the melodic “Juicebox Baby.” You can almost feel Night’s light headedness when she sings,“My mom tells me I’m lazy/ Well it’s ‘cause you make me hazy/ My head’s spinning like crazy.” Morando’s breakneck drums, Gariano’s fevered guitar melody and Nicole’s frenetic bass line, combined with Night’s rapid-fire lyrics about being smitten to the point of dizziness, make the song feel like a musical footrace—in a good way. As the band mates race to the end of the song, it’s no surprise that Night finally confesses, “I think I’m falling, falling for you darlin’/ It’s really quite alarming.”

If their freshman album is any indication of what’s to come from The Regrettes, then we can all look forward to a bright future for these 21st century Riot Grrrls.

Backed by Warner Bros., their debut “Feel Your Feelings, Fool!” is out January. 13th. File under: Teenage rage. And speaking of irony, will they become the first rock band fronted by a 16-year-old girl whose album cover will carry a Parental Advisory label?.

Perfectly imperfect – that’s one way to describe LA based punk act, The Regrettes. Writing songs that proudly bear a brazen and unabashed attitude in the vein of acts Courtney Barnett or Karen O – with a pop aesthetic reminiscent of 50’s and 60’s acts a la the Temptations or Buddy Holly – the LA based four piece create infectious, punk driven tracks.
Lead by outspoken frontwoman, Lydia Night, and comprised of Genessa Gariano on guitar, Sage Nicole on bass and drummer Maxx Morando, the group have left the LA rock scene floored, managing to capture the hearts of jaded rock critics while opening for acts like Kate Nash, Jack Off Jill, Bleached, Pins, Deep Vally and more. With nothing but demos available online, the group are already beginning to generate hype a “punk act you should be listening to”.
