Self-Released
Street: 11.04.14
Rocket 3 = Karen O + 
The Dum Dum Girls

Burn is a sweet, sassy pop rock album that has the capacity to make your heart flutter. Using simple, resonating bass and guitar lines as the core of their tracks, Rocket 3 layer subtle synths, lively keys and drums, and daydreamy vocals to create a compelling soundscape. “Good Enough” kills it both with spunky musical composition and adorable lyricism: “You are better than good enough.” Burn features a few covers of classic rock songs, including The Velvet Underground’s “All Tomorrow’s Parties,” which they make their own with groovy bass and a cheery tempo. Rocket 3 have got dynamics of sugar, spice and everything nice dialed in. –Kia McGinnis
