Queens, NY quartet Azkelt share not only a heritage (3/4's of the band are Irish/Mexican), but also a love for rock as shown on their eponymous debut. On this five-track offering, a hearty smattering of biting '70s guitar rock can be found throughout cuts like "Please", while Jessica Rendon's soaring vocals lead the charge on the neo-grunge vibes shot from "I Am the Life". Meshing foundational rock with sounds from their upbringings, imagine No Doubt, Shakira, and Heart joining together at a VH-1 Honors show for a taste of what this group can do.
