Hairspray Queen Premieres Debut EP

By Carlos Romero

Providence’s Hairspray Queen is starting off the new year with their debut EP cassette. Filling short spurts of time with severe echoes, riffs, and realizations, the five tracks combine seamlessly to create a high powered day dream.

Including members of Lovesick and I Eat Rocks (R.I.P.), there is a variety of hardcore influence within the sound.  Although most of the the tracks were recorded in Converse Rubber Tracks,  Jared Mann, mixed and mastered the EP, whom is no stranger to Providence fuzz. Mann has worked on records for locals such as Gymshorts and Willow, and his added perspective to the EP aids in its heavy impact.

Hairspray Queen will play an EP release show this Friday at AS220 in Providence and on Sunday, January 29th at O’Brien’s Pub in Boston. In the meantime, check out the EP below.
