(B. Bristly, coarse and unflinching, serving of edgy female poprock takes the poppy and punky influences of Garbage, No Doubt and Blondie and mutates them into a personal, memorable breed of accessibility with brutally honest, "badass" chick rock. Keeping it interesting by playing with beat and rhyhtm, structure and the moments of musical pay-off, Matahari is an alternative rock group fronted by female vocalist Ivona Coufalova, their sound is a blend of contemporary pop, punk, rock and techno. Matahari's lyrics are intriguing set to dark driving rhythms and upbeat grooves. Ivona is a passionate vocalist and the band is hard driving utilizing rock rifts with an electronic edge. The CD opens with 'Scream Out Love' that combines stimulating techno tones with a heavy beat leading to the powerful hook belted out by Coufalova. It is followed by another rocker 'Sugar', which is clever lyrically and edgy in execution. 'Over Now' melds varied tempos with dramatic pauses. The song is dark and driving. Matahari, named after a World War I female spy, is aptly named as they combine modern mystery with musical magic! author: Laura T Lynch of Kweevak.com, Tamara Turner, CD Baby.com
