There is a fabled sweet spot where pop and rock mix to perfection. It is a place that many need help finding their way to, some never do, erring either too much on the shallow side of pop or straying too far towards the cliche of rock. But, should you find this fabled place, the one thing that I can assure you is that you will find Madame Psychosis there waiting for you.

As demonstrated by Concrete Streets, a teaser for a forthcoming album, they know precisely how to blend the infectiousness of pop with the grit of rock, and the result is delicious, the perfect blend of muscle and melody, groove and grind.

That full-length album can’t come fast enough if you ask me. And if you have read this far, you kind of did.
