The Histrioniks have just completed their second CD, “About This Girl” on CatErratic Records. A follow up to their debut, “Homesick From The Grave”, the acoustic duo have turned a new page; a 180 degree shift in both sound and style. The minimalism of “Homesick” has been replaced with layers of rich harmonies, driving guitars and bass all built on the foundation of drums, purposely absent on the first CD. The first child, experimental but somewhat cautious has surrendered to the second child; a fearless , tireless rascal who meets the world head on and wins! It’s as though the meek have inherited the airwaves and then pulled a fast one on the listener.
“About This Girl”, well, it’s about this girl, perhaps any girl coming of age and being misunderstood. It’s her personal diary put to music and verse. Her journey begins innocently enough - all girls are innocent at first. As the cover art suggests, she is a person of many faces, a woman and a child of great complexity who is willing to try anything. It’s not the unholy trinity of sex, drugs, and rock and roll that do her in ( although at least two out of three are at work here) but rather the unusual way in which she chooses to live her life. “About This Girl” illustrates the point that life is a cumulative process - you just pick up things along the way.
We hope you enjoy our “girl” - we enjoyed creating her. She’s yours for the taking. Find her on our website at www.thehistrioniks.com, at Cdbaby, on Itunes and, naked and alive on radio stations or fittingly clothed in magazines with the words that befit her style. That’s what she would want!
