Editors’ Notes

This garage-rock power trio answers their own question with an emphatic “Yes!” on their sharp and energetic third release. Lead singer and guitarist Coco Hames is a potent blend of sass and venom. She plays the coy temptress one moment and the jilted vixen the next as the airtight rhythm section hammers the beat home behind her. Brief, punchy, fuzzed-out rockers like “Red In Tooth and Claw,” “I Can’t Be True,” “Walk Out That Door,” and “No Home” are the foundation of the album and the band’s sound, but they know how to ease off the throttle, too. The loping, nearly country strummer “Love Lies Bleeding” is as catchy as anything here, while the piano-with-cello ballad “Keep Me In Flowers” closes the album on a surprisingly vulnerable and touching note. In the end, this variety, along with the crispness of the songwriting, makes Do You Want Power their most impressive release yet.

I've been a fan since "Shake the Dust" and its amazing how this band has evolved. Somehow The Ettes manage to bring something new to each record without losing the grit. This is arguablely their best yet, sooo good, I can't stop listening!


Formed: 2004 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Serving up a sexy but undeniably fierce mix of pop smarts and garage rock power, the Ettes are vocalist/guitarist Lindsay "Coco" Hames, drummer Maria "Poni" Silver, and bassist Jeremy "Jem" Cohen, a trio of New Yorkers who became Los Angelenos. The band formed in 2004 and soon won a following for its mix of Nancy Sinatra style, Patsy Cline twang, and Stonesy rock. Radio airplay and live shows contributed to the Ettes' buzz, which eventually led to the group signing with Sympathy for the Record Industry....
