Let’s do the math quickly:
There are two Numb Bats releases which came out at the same time:
Gentle Horror: Their cohesive full-length concept debut album. Dark and yet as dreamy and poppy as it can be. This is a cohesive statement possibly about the state of rock-pop music, teenage boredom and the death of the soul.
Numb Bats – Self-Titled – Sun Lips Records Cassette: A four-track EP, with lighter tunes. No death. Instead, love, bounce, and…sex?
She’s All That is about sex, love at first sight, uncontrolled excitement, seduction. It pulls you in with its grunge riff and soft crooning till it builds up to a punk rock release. It is soft, yet forthcoming, then it shakes you. But you pull back…and it becomes desperate, and apologetic. It lets you go eventually, but you never forget it.
The final plea “Come on baby, let me show you the world” is an invitation that cannot be refused.
