After paying tribute to their musical heroes with their Adventures in Coverland project, San Antonio garage pop/grunge/punk trio Girl in a Coma are back with a self-penned collection of songs. Exists & All The Rest is filled to the rafters with their signature Sixties pop melodies wrapped in punk, grunge and a bit of Tex Mex. She Had a Plan, is the track that sums it all up: a surf rock bass line bubbling under a careful power chords and instantly hummable guitar motifs, crystal clear lead vocals, leading up to grungy feedback freak out.

Girl in a Coma are a self-confident, tough band, even when they go slow (Sly) of channel the sunny girl group pop sound (Smart). Recommended if you like Belly, The Breeders, PJ Harvey, and The Crystals.

Nina Diaz: vocals, guitar
