Spider Rockets - Bitten

by Kevin Wierzbicki

.
With an insistent bass riff and powerful drumming Bitten's opening track "Going Down" could be a reference to someone getting beat up or arrested. But singer Helena Cos doesn't leave any room for interpretation; she's using the term as it might be whispered in the bedroom except that she's not whispering and she's not taking no for an answer. Forcefulness but not bombast prevails throughout the album with guitars getting a little woozy-sounding during "So High," another song about sex despite a title that's likely to be misinterpreted. "Scream" though, is about drugs, or at least about the troubled state of being that comes from living on some type of edge. "Bring Me Around" is a bit more laid back than much of the album; the dreamy number has Cos recalling the less-manic work of Pat Benatar. Spider Rockets seemingly has everything going here to breakthrough: well-written songs full of slashing guitars and swagger, a sexy and sassy front woman and just enough innuendo to keep a knowing grin on the listener's face.
