Usually when you tell someone he hits like a girl, it's meant as an insult. But the punch the all-girl trio AKA packs is anything but weak. The up-and-coming local group has been making a name for itself since 2004. Now with a different drummer and frequent shows at PS 14, Churchill's, Felt, and other venues, AKA puts on knockout performances that have bred a loyal following on the estrogen-lacking 305 rock scene. The group's music is telltale of its influences with an attitude that can only match Alanis's, a catchy sensibility comparable to No Doubt, and heavy guitar riffs reminiscent of Green Day. The trio's alternative feel is an appealing pop sound tinged with a bit of edgy punk flavor. Most notable are the lead singer's powerful vocals, energetic yet haunting and fueled by the group's signature fast beat. Fans can expect a full-length release in the upcoming months.
