Singer/guitarist Laura Elisse Salenger, better known as Brix Smith (Brix as a tribute to The Clash’ Guns of Brixton, Smith from her ex-husband Mark E. Smith), played with The Fall, The Extricated and the Bangles, but she also stands her ground solo. On her full-length album Valley Of The Dolls you’ll hear hear ten powerful songs that are reminiscent of the work of Hole, The Breeders and Liz Phair. Youthful but strong sounding vocals over melodic guitar rock with a 90s feel, that still works pretty well in 2023.
Valley Of The Dolls is out now on CD and vinyl LP through Grit Over Glamour Records. Featuring guest appearances from Susanna Hoffs (Bangles) and Siobhan Fahey (Bananarama, Shakespeare’s Sister).
