BACKSTAGE ARTICLE ON SIDE-LINE MAGAZINE

A murder of beauty queens…and only one tiara.

Nasty music for nasty women who are empowered, defiant and over it – Miss Ballistic is part electro-pop band, part all-girl bar brawl. If you like electro girl pop with a twist, you’ll LOVE Miss Ballistic.

Produced by Industrial strength Hellectro outfit Angelspit, Miss Ballistics’ debut album “Blood and Glitter” packs a punch with 10 electro riot tracks. Featuring the vocals of Carley Girl, Maeze, Cel and Melanie Jade, “Blood and Glitter” will turn dance floors into a blitz with infectious sweet girl vocals, pop hooks and pounding beats.

On the surface, Miss Ballistics’ lyrics are light-hearted blood thirsty tales about winning a beauty pageant, but underneath are filled with strength and determination. Tackling issues of body image, the beauty myth, unwanted physical contact, the press’s lust for youth and the unachievable body image still being projected onto women everywhere.

“Violence is served as entertainment everywhere. It’s our turn to be aggressive and share an empowering message dripping with glitz and glamour.”
– Miss Ballistic

Cover design for Helalyn Flowers digital EP ‘Suicidal Birds’

Digital Ep Artwork + Band Photography + Logo Design + Merchandise design + Website/Bandcamp/Youtube/Twitter/Facebook webdesign by Toxic Visions

With “Suicidal Birds”, the HELALYN FLOWERS volcano erupts with the first sonic blow from their forthcoming album announced for Spring 2020: “Àiresis”. This new instant hit grows on you in no time with Noemi Aurora’s unique vocal dimension powerfully pushed to the forefront by an arsenal of solid electro sequencing intermingled with edgy guitars. A splendid song announcing an uplifting sublimation of HELALYN FLOWERS’ roots and background references distilling a magma of early electro wave, 90’s nu-synth era and 21st century revolted industrial pop.

The Italian duo then initiated collaborations with 3 other Alfa Matrix label family members offering radically different versions of this title song. 808 DOT POP appropriates the strong electro roots of the song and turns it into a high-energy synthetic groove track with old-school EBM frantic rhythm patterns and pumping basslines reminiscent to some kind of KRAFTWERK meets DEPECHE MODE synth pop hybrid. To the contrary, LLUMEN opted for a more orchestral rendition of “Suicidal Birds” plunging Noemi Aurora’s raging voice in a bath of ethereal soundscapes and giving it all its grandeur. Last but not least, the fruitful jamming studio session with IMJUDAS resulting in a dangerous and almost sexual clash of contrasts between HELALYN FLOWERS lush female vocals and IMJUDAS’ deep and dark vox, evoking a sort of unexpected collaboration between LADYTRON and GARY NUMAN with the intricate electro touch of RECOIL.

A stunning new song announcing the more than promising next studio album, and another big “kick in the ass” revolted shout against human’s defective illusion of freedom, the way our self-destructive humanity keeps building its own cage to feel free… “Don’t be the prey – be the hunter!”.
