What a kick as post-punk, hard rock song with headbanging and moshing, Reason/Define have taken Lita Ford’s ass-kicking a step forward. Coming from Charlotte, Reason/Define is comprised of lead vocalist Paolina Massaro; bassist and vocalist Caitlin Rutkowski; guitarist and vocalist Sav Ruff; drummer Syd McVicker; and guitarist Shelby McVicker. Their three part harmonies towering over the incredible power of the band is heaven for a punk like me. And their lyrics are so Alanis Morissette with more power and focus. Just read these powerful lyrics:
“Are you aware, you put the cross on me to bear, my heart a gilded cage, from which I will escape, I won’t accept the silence, your words like puppet strings, but you won’t clip these wings, the truth is on the horizon.”
The anger and power of Reason/Define is refreshing. This is a band to watch.
