Their grunge sound is reminiscent of early Sonic Youth, with a heavy dose of jerky punk rock similar to Coachwhips and a splash of electro indie pop akin to The Fall.
Mary beats the drums and tinkers catchy electro tunes on the keyboard, while Ste splutters his vocals and picks his Rickenbacker to fill both lead and bass guitar rhythms.
On first listen you may wonder how a lovely quite couple manage to make, what some might call, a noisy racket? Your guess is as good as ours.
Pifco – a two-piece featuring Steve on guitar and vocal and Mary on drums – twist every drop of fidelity from ‘She Cracked’, rendering it so rough about the edges it’s a wonder the song’s core comes through at all. Scuzzy and fuzzy, yet ripe with an infectious energy, the cover sounds as if it’s being played live two floors below the listener’s footing – distant for sure, yet each facet is entirely audible, however distorted it may be.
