Four on the Floor

Let’s get one thing out of the way: Vancougar was a band long before anyone even knew older women were so successful with younger men. Even so, the band’s four rocker chicks still don’t qualify as older women yet — there’s no joke to be made here; keep moving. The band’s CD Canadian Tuxedo is full of catchy, loud, garage-influenced pop; it’s sweet, fast, and bouncy. Vancougar’s sound is the result of frontwoman Eden Fineday’s unquenchable thirst for rock as well as the always-surprising strength of her vocals. Becca Stewart, Megan Johnson, and CC Rose back her up ferociously; their look is something like “the Runaways grew up but never sold out,” or “the mad Donnas.”
