"Album review"

Stiletta (self-released)
Don’t be fooled. Beyond the thigh-highs and doe eyes beats the ardent, inked-up heart of classic punk rock. Like a coy
smile that accompanies a swift knee to the groin, Stiletta marries charm with fierce but fun-loving vitriol and fuses the
tried-and-true union of screamy vocals and fevered guitars while still achieving a kinetic freshness. This female trio’s fervor
paired with its admiration for influences like Sonic Youth and AC/DC makes for a blistering debut. “You may think that we are
young and/You may think that we won’t last long,” sneers the crackling opener, “Glass,” a shard-spitting sonic boom that paves
the way for the impetuous yet effervescently melodic riot that ensues. They may be young, but this frenzied first assault
suggests Stiletta has the potential to last as long as they’d damned well please. —KIMBERLY LAPHAM - SOMA Magazine

""Why do I always fall for opening bands?"

"Why do I always fall for opening bands? I went to see the Lovemakers' predictable sexy rock-fest to discover the ultimate chick band. The Stiletta girls are adorable and scary at the same time. Scary because of their chaotic rock whipped up with powerful melodies.." - Pearl Necklace Zine

Stiletta (s/t) 2004


Feeling a bit camera shy


Influenced by old school punk, post-punk, classic rock, hardcore, psychedelic, garage and 50’s tunes, Stiletta creates a unique rock sound where melodic vocals quickly become enveloping harmonies. 50’s bass progressions are paired with screaming chords and strange guitar solos, a phenomenon the band calls “the heartbeat.”
