“Giving us a glimpse at their debut self-titled CD Happenstance has pre-released their new single “Gone Baby Gone” as a taste of what is to come. I really enjoyed the song. There is a lack of credible rock acts with female lead singers – Paramore being the most obvious example tend to err more towards pop rock. In this way the Canadian band is a breath of fresh air and at certain points during ‘Gone Baby Gone’ reminds me of L7, which is never a bad thing. While there isn’t really much substance to the lyrics it is definitely a song you can sing along with after a few listens and the hook is guaranteed to be stuck in your head for a while. We are treated to some lovely powerful vocals from Emily Lamarche really giving it everything she’s got. There’s a hint of country and western about her which is broken up by a solid guitar performance, leading to an interesting combination of styles.”
