The Cold Volts are a garage-punk/psych-rock duo based in LA. They recently released their first album, a four-track digital EP titled People Noise. It's short, fast, and full of more energy than you'd think just two people would be able to produce. The vocals are similar to those of early White Stripes material or Portugal. The Man, but when they're paired with the beefy drumming and raw-edged punk guitar riffs that persist on The Cold Volts' tracks, it makes for something fresh and intriguing. The opening track, "Dope", comes out of the gate running and doesn't stop -- this stuff'll shoot lightning bolts into your limbs and make you want to bring headbanging back.
