Supersonic Girl

The look, the sound and the originality.

Now available through iTunes & Amazon stores 

After seeing their on-line videos, and eventually catching them live at the Rockabilly Rave 2014, we finally get a C.D. release from this excellent band. Tallinn, Estonia seems an unlikely place to find such a fine sounding (and looking) rock 'n' roll/rockabilly band. 
'Supersonic Girl' was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Lightning Recorders Studio in Berlin by Axel Praefcke and Ike Stoye. Both being Rhythm Bomb recording artists, and more than capable musicians, they were the chosen outfit to record Maryann and the Tri-Tones original demo recordings (see the link at bottom of this post for sound files).

From the first track, 'Honey Babe', the band sets out its stall as to what to expect from the rest of the C.D., and in Maryann and the Tri-Tones case it is full-on rockabilly. There are eight rockers, one stroller 'If I Could I Would' (my favourite, and my ring-tone!), and one haunting ballad 'Queen of the Desert', all penned by Maryann Lants and lead guitarist Artur Skrõpnik ('Honey Babe' was co-written with Yuri Zhukov)
 I could wax lyrical about this C.D. until the cows come home, but I think I'll leave the in-depth reviews to wiser souls such as Andrew Smith - check out his review here. I also suggest you watch the promo video that was produced by the band. They are in the process of getting the C.D. available for a digital download, and are negotiating deals with on-line record and C.D. stores, so keep em' peeled. You can obtain a copy sooner by contacting the band via their Facebook Page.
