“The ladies in Orlando band Wet Nurse must love the sound of its peppy garage rock. The trio stays in a groove with tight, short songs that could make the scrappy, power-pop leading ladies of Letters to Cleo or Best Coast perk up their ears.”
"Wet Nurse plays the kind of three-chord, snotty punk that is best described as the fauna of garages across the United States. The name is fitting as well, seeing as the three ladies are often drenched in sweat at the end of one of their highly energetic sets..."
“In the punky tradition of The Slits, Wet Nurse uses its womanliness to generate a veritable doozy of a band name. Comprised of twin sisters Nina and Susana Chaplin as well as drummer Vanessa Brewster, the band hails from Florida's Disney-tainted underbelly of Orlando. And with its moniker, there's no question whether the members of this garage punk trio have girl parts or not... With lyrics like, "No one's around to give me a cigarette lighter!," these wild women lament the complex situations life has to offer with irreverence. Seriously, though, does anyone have a lighter?”
“The Wet Nurse EP is the first release by the Orlando outfit of the same name, the six tracks raucous punchy garage pop with art-imitates-life lyrics like "Face down, face down, face down in the tub" (from "Wasted") and "No one’s around to give me a cigarette lighter, no one’s around to help me start this fire" ("Cigarette Lighter") delivered in the dual snotty femme vocals of frontwomen/twin sisters Nina and Susana Chaplin (on guitar and bass respectively). The trio's sound is rounded out by the fast-pounding backbeat of Vanessa Brewster.”
"Lazy Boyzzz and Wet Nurse celebrated the release of their new 7-inch split, Wet N’ Lazy (Aug. 6, Hoops Tavern). The best part about this show: Five dollars got me both entry and a copy of the new vinyl twofer by a couple of Orlando’s best young bands.
As is becoming expected from them, both bands delivered. Wet Nurse is gaining momentum as the area’s best girl group..."
“Wet Nurse can be said to be 'catchy' and “quirky” and 'rackety' and 'loud' and 'shimmy-shakin' and 'a band that you want to see.' But in seriousness: get this album! 'Brain Arcade' alone is worth the price of admission ($0). And even if it was 99 cents, I’d splurge on it!”
“Wet Nurse came on stage with the charisma and experience of a well seasoned act. For a trio that might be a year old, the cohesiveness is that of a band that’s been together for decades. “Brain Arcade” is a clear single for Wet Nurse, but the rest of their material holds up just as well recorded as live. They play to the crowd like professionals and it’s clear they deserve the press.”
“...Also on the bill tonight is Orlando’s Wet Nurse, an all-girl trio whose sense of melodic structure, garage-y fun and attitude earned them a mention as one of the best new bands in this paper last year. Tonight’s quality lineup is yet another reason why free, local shows have blossomed of late.”
“Wet Nurse is killing it lately. Their pop sensibilities are in full steam ahead mode. This new band has put out their debut cassette and are already have more recordings on the way. If the songs are any indication of what is to come- look out. Those girls are on fire.”
“Wet Nurse blew the place apart with their Bikini Kill style fem-punk rock. You can see their influences with every song, but there’s still originality, style, and loads of character. The twin sisters smile and scream through every song, dropping cute but cutting lines between tracks and shamelessly promoting their new tape, and at $3 it’s well worth it. A Wet Nurse show will change your mentality on the 407 and new music coming out in 2011.”
"...Their raw underground sound is a force to be reckoned with. They are the love-child of Powder Puff Girls and Sex Pistols. The pure epitomy of what punk should be. If society was blasted in the face with this, instead of the generic shit coming out of Hollywood, the world would be a much prettier, happier place. I know they took me back to my happy place. I am not easily impressed, but they hit me. Hands down, check this band out."
“Wet Nurse isn’t the most polished rock ‘n’ roll trio in town, and that’s just fine; their raw take on girl-fronted garage pop is both bristly and sunshiny, and too much polish would end up weighing it down.”
“Named one of Orlando’s Best New Bands
This Little Underground Column, 2010 Undies Awards
““However, perhaps the most significant aspect of this bill is the surprise revelation it yielded in young local band Wet Nurse. The twin-fronted, all-girl garage-pop act is reasonably well formed for a new band and deals in snappy songs beaming with guts and charm. In fact, with their melodic craft and pleasing tones, they’re already showing the stuff it takes to be much more than just another willfully disheveled outfit. Loaded with potential, Wet Nurse is one of the most promising new bands I’ve seen in a while.””
““New band Wet Nurse featuring twin sisters Nina and Susana Chaplin were great playing a poppy set that reminded me of Go Sailor and Cub. They just may be my new favorite local band.””
