Angel Rocket is the musical collaboration of veteran musicians Robb Jarrett (songwriter, producer, drummer, keyboards and electronics) and Denise Hall (vocalist, keyboards, and lyricist) and Carlos Torres-Ortiz (drums and vocals). The sound is the result of Jarrett and Hall’s contrasting musical backgrounds and tastes. Hall’s experience with mainstream pop, and Jarrett’s love for industrial and electronica, and Ortiz's heavy rock and metal roots, generates a uniquely fresh style and feel.
Angel Rocket draws on the influences of early electronic acts like Nine Inch Nails and The Prodigy, and finds familiar company with current artists like Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Yelle, Sleigh Bells and Metric.
In late September of 2010, Angel Rocket began posting demo tracks from their debut EP, Love Part One (released in early 2011) and received immediate attention from bloggers and social networks.
• “Love Part One is intense, confident and satisfying. It blends electronica beats and synths with radio friendly lyrics to create a refreshing and unique record.”
• “This band is fresh and fun and feels no need to apologize for it.”
• “The first time I heard this band I knew I was going to like everything they do.”
The band will begin securing dates to support its EP and online releases while continuing to write and record a full length record for release in early 2012.

The formula of surgically freeforming sugary pop vocals with heavier sounds and dance beats is fun, current, and very well done. I believe time on task will be good for Angel Rocket and we are looking forward to the next set of songs.

This is not so with Angel Rocket. This is a professional, club-worthy set of songs, each standing strong. They're full, energetic, and can make converts of any individual who's not usually into techo/industrial.

If I were to classify the group I would say they remind me of a lot of the 90's electronic bands and DJ’s I used to dance around my apartment to. Like Lords of Acid, Messiah, and Sunscreem. Their cover of The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” got my blood pumping and my body moving. It makes the song sound more sinister by adding the electronic element. It’s brooding and sexy. Check it out below.
