Flying Kangaroo Alliance - Alternative Rock Female Live Act in Leicester

Flying Kangaroo Alliance Short Info

“Swaggering, attitude-driven Rock n' Roll. Framed by distorted guitars and swinging rhythm section, Meri Everitt's vocals are pumped up with emotion and a delivery that falls somewhere between mid-90s female vocalists like Julianna Hatfield and something a little more bluesy and gritty.” - Rough Trade Records.

April 2018 - New Line-Up:
"'Music In Leicester' (online magazine) regularly sang the praises of the next band, Flying Kangaroo Alliance, until their parting of ways. Now, after an absence of three years we are here to witness their return. It’s a new line-up, apart from driving force Meri Everitt up front, and it’s a line-up that makes them sound a little heavier and a touch faster."

Louderthanwar.com - vinyl single review:

Punk Fox is a collector’s dream. Advice on how to get hold of the things later, but first a quick run through of the seven releases to date.

XOF001 Flying Kangaroo Alliance

First out of the blocks are Flying Kangaroo Alliance with Hit The Wall/Wasted (XOF001). This Leicester quartet is perhaps the most ‘rock’ outfit to have featured on the label to date. They’re grunge children with genuine songwriting chops and, across these two tracks, impassioned vocalist Meri Everitt strikes just the right balance between ‘defiant in the face of adversity’ and ‘unspeakably pissed off.’ She’s got a heck of a voice. Alanis, Polly Harvey and Hole are among the acts that FKA namecheck but for me another valid comparison is Throwing Muses, which can clearly only be a good thing. Compliments to the absolutely thunderous drumming on Wasted, by the way. I’m told there’s a mere handful of these left so look lively if you’d like one. Vinyl: translucent purple and green splatter.
