“Tension, anxiety, ominous energy, and the release that comes
from vanquishing those mental foes. Specifically, vanquishing
them with rock and roll.” That’s how Violet Archaea, guitarist,
singer, and leader of Louisville’s The Archaeas describes
the themes of their new self-titled album on Goner Records.
Beginning as a one-witch band, they now perform as a perfectlybalanced
rock trio with frightening power, reflecting punk rock
’n’ roll from the last fifty years—AC/DC, Johnny Thunders’
Heartbreakers and The Dead Boys through The Reatards and
Carbonas, even early Ty Segall—but The Archaeas are young
enough to soak up sounds, attitudes, riffs and turnarounds from
other bands and songs and still push them into their own Battle
Royale.
The Archaeas’ roots make sense: the bombastic Japanese trio
Guitar Wolf and Mark Sultan “I began working on the first set
of Archaeas songs after seeing Wild Zero for the first time,”
Violet explains. “Back then I had the drums on my feet Mark
Sultan-style. We projected it on a wall and had the audio blasting
through a huge PA system. I’m hugely inspired by Seiji.” That
Wild Zero, a story where rock and roll superheroes Guitar Wolf
come to help a trans heroine save the Earth from an influx of
alien zombies, resonated with Violet might not be so surprising,
as she was coming to terms with being a badass trans musician
in Kentucky. As in the film, gender politics don’t dominate the
Archaeas message—it’s more the anxiety and pressure of living
in today’s world that creates such intense music and feelings.
The result is one of the most explosive debut albums in
recent memory. In the midst of the mud and blood and the
riffs, a rhythm starts up. Then guitar and bass blast as one thick
bulldozing wall of distortion. The drums kick ass, and the vocals
express a yearning, an anguish, and hopefully a release, with
all the parts racing until the song is over… quickly. Violet can
really play some guitar, but don’t look for solos long enough to
get the lighter out for. Some razor cuts and she’s done with it.
The Archaeas are the real deal.
