Taylor Momsen and her songwriting partner/guitarist Ben Phillips are back with their 2nd LP "Going to hell", it´s been 4 long years since their debut album "Light me up" even though The Pretty Reckless released the "Hit me like a man" EP in 2012. What the fans and the real music collectors want, is a full length album and here we are with the mighty fine "Going to hell".
Lyricwise, she´s dealing with catholic guilt and in some moments, I think of Taylor as a modern Patti Smith. Taylor is truly the opposite to Katy Perry and what every guy would love to have as a girlfriend.
She´s a bad-ass, beautiful punkrocker girl that knows how to write a real good rocksong. Just listen to amazing tracks like "Absolution", "Follow me down" or "Heaven knows".
The Pretty Reckless are going from strength to strength.
