New Music – Vanity Theft

With a name that sounds like it should be a James Bond leading lady Vanity Theft release their full-length album, Get What You Came For, in February via Vigilante Music/Adamant Records.

The album was preceded by the EP Anatomy in October 2010.

“Anatomy” – Vanity Theft

Their songs sound somewhere between the work of Sleater-Kinney and the Ting Tings and are mostly about past romances and as such fit right into the storied legacy of all-girl bands bent on debunking benign all-girl conventions.

For instance, “we’ve gone through a lot of breakups,” says Elyse. “So for me, a lot of the lyrics are really sarcastic.” The melancholic “Missing Teeth” messes with Auto-Tune to detail an ex’s shortcomings; the highly danceable “Trainwreck” is about finding sexual empowerment in a dysfunctional relationship; and “Bit by Bit” uses stabbing riffs and retro synths to soundtrack being obsessed with the wrong person.
