Fronted by Katarina Auster (“Gwen Stefani’s evil twin”) this duo’s synth-driven songs have dark, edgy overtones that at times are reminiscent of Evanescence, especially on “Start Up,” which has a guest vocal by rapper Jabee. Unfortunately, Auster’s vocals need to be either re-recorded or mixed hotter to match the technical quality of the music tracks. Her vocals are better, more passionate (though could be stronger on the high notes) on “Empire Vampire,” a tune whose lyrics might make it too obvious for placement in a horror flick. “Red Hot,” with its throbbing, martial beat and cheerleader-squad shout-out (“Our team is red hot, red hot, red hot!”) is infectious fun. On all songs, we urge the band to re-record Auster’s leads.
