Review: Plush are the future of rock on debut album

"Plush," Plush, (Pavement Entertainment).

I have no fear about the future of rock & roll. Plush is the strongest all-female rock band ever assembled and their debut album may be the best of 2021.

Imagine Pink singing for Metallica. That's just a small sample of the Plush sound.

Although you may not know Moriah Formica's name, you will soon. It will be mentioned in the same sentence as some of the most outstanding female vocalists of all time -- let's just say vocalists of all time -- such as Ann Wilson of Heart or Pat Benatar, whose songs Formica sang in high school rock clubs using only an acoustic instrument. It is not possible to contain her multi-octave, soaring vocals with the arena's roof.

Formica's next song about a happy relationship is the first. It's full of pain-filled laments, including "Sober," "Why Do I Even Try," and "Don't Say That." Most of the songs end with messages of empowerment for females. The protagonist recognizes that she's in a difficult situation and cuts her losses, and then leaves for a better future ("Found a Way," “Better Off Alone” and "Walk Away."

Formica, who plays rhythm guitar, Ashley Suppa, Bella Perron, and Brooke Colucci are all under 21 years old. They play instruments like seasoned veterans who can hit as hard as anybody.

The future of rock could be in the hands of these kids.
