DOWNGIRL • Manic • 2022

“The 90s references work, but DOWNGIRL work harder. They make this one sizzle.” 
4 / 5 (Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J) [About ‘Beauty Queen’]  

“Massive riffs and destroy-everything vocals make for grungy goodness. I really like how this explodes after 2 min mark. Keen to hear more.” 
4 / 5 (Ryan Egan, Triple J) [About ‘Beauty Queen’]

'Beauty Queen' music video played on MTV

“‘Twas the night before Mardi Gras and all through the house, not a creature was stirring… until the first notes of Downgirl, when every living thing within earshot woke the fuck up and wondered, reasonably, whether the world was ending. A fearsome set, where everything is inside out, an impossible puzzle of things that don’t make sense but just do. It’s like enjoying getting a hammer to back of the head. What utter fun.” 
(The Underground Stage)

“Downgirl tore it up like a wrecking machine made of the Runaways and Bikini Kill” 
(Brian Giffin - Loud Mag)
