A rough-and-ready new band formed by the inimitable Tina Jackson and Rollerball guitarist Dave Talon, Poor Little Things first made their mark with a relentless stream of hard-hitting rock’n’roll cuts, and a debut album that tore through the independent scene with a rare ferocity. Since then, they’ve continued to impress, winning over fans and critics alike with their uncompromising sound and truly titanic sophomore album.
Titled ‘Deal Breaker’, the new record sees the band setting fire to the airwaves and laying waste to the splintered pub rock scene. A riotous release of ten tracks that stamp their feet and burst into life, the album is bold, brazen, and built to break speakers and venues alike. With Tina on vocals and Dave creating a maelstrom of cataclysmic sounds on his guitar, there’s clearly no lack of passion or energy, and it’s clear from the very first track that you’re in for one hell of a trip.
Mixing sounds from the ’80s with classic punk, garage rock, and ever more modern influences, the album is a howling ode to the dirty world of rock’n’roll, pulling no punches and making every track as loud as possible. Through standout anthems like ‘Fire It Up’, ‘The Cutest In The Band’, and ‘The Lucky Falling’, the dynamic duo set the standard, delivering badass riffs, bold, explosive choruses, and sonically charged moments that get right up in your face and bears down with grit and ample bite.
An album that sweeps away the grey every day, ‘Deal Breaker’ is a crazy rollercoaster ride that never once lets you down, offering thrills, action, and plenty of adrenaline-soaked moments. Check out the album below on Spotify.
An unforgettable listening experience, ‘Deal Breaker’ is a piece of raw, unadulterated passion, pushing itself on and on with an undeniable sense of self. While a little bit messy and more than a little rough around the edges, it’s a true and unpolished ode to the classic pub rock scene that bore it, and for that, it’s a joy to hear.
