Spider Heart / Press

“Who: a tremendous four-headed guitar firing and rocking hurricane from Oakland, California. Formed in 2011 with lyrics spitting frontwoman May Black as an irresistible magnet… They love: The Stooges, The Cramps, The White Stripes, Patti Smith, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Babes in Toyland… Work: debut album ‘Under The Gun’ (2013) Music Is the Dope: Wham Bam… ‘Little Doll’ is a frontal punk rock attack… a fury… n.o. m.e.r.c.y.!… Pretty impressed with the ‘Under The Gun’ album I overcame my immense fear of spiders and got in touch with the band to chat about David Lynch, killers and war… eh, pleased to meet you…”

“For anyone who likes garage/surf/psych, this is very cool stuff. Great beats, vocals, guitar jams, blues, some slide guitar action, lots of wah, wah, fuzz all the ingredients are here , mixed right .Make sure you crank it up while your reading…..Lets give it two thumbs up , I really don’t like putting a number to a work of art….”

“Based in Oakland, California and fronted by singer and guitarist May Black; Spider Heart are a four piece content on shredding up the rock rule book. Theirs is a sound akin to the fire and fury of Babes in Toyland... Had Kat Bjelland recruited a soft vocal and driven nails into the band’s bass amp. There’s also a tinge of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club to their instrumentation, giving away their stature on their local scene. Spider Heart is very much a West Coast band.”

“If you fancy loud, guitar-driven indie rock, check out Spider Heart. Lead singer May Black's voice delivers emotions that are sexy, angry and at times absolutely sultry. The Oakland band's first record, "Under the Gun," was released in January.”

“The first track, "Voodoo" really astounds. A voluptuous essence builds it up.The colourful feel washes over on it with clarity from beginning to end. This bold tune piques the interest for all the right reasons.”

“ARACHNID ROCK May Black gives Oakland garage rockers Spider Heart an unforgettable edge.”

“Sometimes you wanna get a little down and dirty. Emeryville-based band Spider Heart makes garage sexy, dirty and totally awesome.”
