Los Angeles indie outfit The Perfect Nines manage to blissfully hearken back to early '90s alternative, while elegantly forging ahead at the same time.
Fronted by Cinzia Moniaci, who also founded the chic Moni Moni Italian Leather handbag line, the group echoes PJ Harvey and Garbage but with an ethereal flare all their own. Their self-titled debut skates between the melodic hum of "Beautiful Inside" and the entrancing vulnerability of "What Happened After?" Like some kind of classic cinema femme fatale, Moniaci's delivery proves both invigorating and inimitable, matching the music's inherent passion, while elevating it all the same.
She shines brilliantly on the record standout, "Carry On". It's a heartfelt and hypnotic closer to one of the most thrilling indie releases in recent memory. The Perfect Nines are just plain "perfect".
