Over the years Maya Miller and Becky Black have gradually evolved their blues influenced rock sound to incorporate an increasingly garage driven energy, whilst never completely cutting loose from their core elements and this has enabled The Pack A.D. to continually add to their fan-base without alienating along the way.
From the dozen track album – Yes I Know – the second is perhaps that most deeply steeped in Southern Blues with a thumping percussion and shifting riffs as the song sears like a hot branding iron into the brain.
Having recently changed labels The Pack A.D. have put out a single in advance of the as yet unnamed album, which seems to be going under the working title of Pariah.
So What has a more compressed and hence tighter sound to it than material previously featured, giving the duo a punchier feel, allowing them to create greater depth of texture in a track which also takes them back to their roots with its blues-rock undertow.
I look forward to discovering if this tautness is continued through the rest of the songs on the forthcoming LP.
