Bush Tetras: Rebelling Pioneers

New York band Bush Tetras, a post-punk group founded by lead guitarist Pat Place, has recently released their new album, Happy. It was recorded in the ‘90s but only just put out by New York label ROIR. Bush Tetras chain together the high-pitched, rhythmic vocals of lead singer Cynthia Sley with loud guitar pieces and riffs. Drawing from hard rock and metal sounds, their music can range from more subtle and soft songs such as “Slap,” from the new record, to works such as “Stand Up And Fight,” which lean more towards the punk rock genre. Listen to Bush Tetras play with Suicide at Le Poisson Rouge on Nov. 29 in Manhattan.
