Prom Queen seems like such a sweet band on the outside. They look innocent. They sound a bit like the Ronettes or the Shirelles. It reminds me of that song by Tracey Ullman, “They Don’t Know.” Do you guys remember that song? It came out in the 1983 so some of you weren’t born yet.
However, the lyrics to Prom Queen’s songs are not sweet at all. They released an album in September 2017 called Doom-Wop. I appreciate the play on words. It appeals to my twisted sense of humor.
I’m fairly certain that the song “End of the World” isn’t about the end of a relationship. It’s really about the apocalypse. I can’t say for sure if there are zombies or not.
I like “Manic Panic.” I wonder if it will make me feel happier during a panic attack. Also, “Vengeance will be Mine,” is my personal favorite song on the album. Prom Queen does a killer cover of “November Rain.”
So if you’re into nostalgia with a twist, Twin Peaks or sweet things that aren’t truly what they seem, then you might like Prom Queen.
